You Know How Sometimes

an idea seems really good in your head, but in real life....well, you know... unless I was going for the I-could-really-use-a-lifetime-supply-of-Lime-Away look.

Which I wasn't.

Despite what my bathroom faucet says.

  1. is that like when I started stripping the paint on the cabinets in our bakersfield little house. I think realized what a LARGE job it was. Stupid. I'll not try to do that again.

  2. I promise you could make the projects in that Sock & Glove book. Even when they turn out ugly, they're still cute!

    Maybe I'll look up your sister when I'm in Boise. There's no better way to spend an afternoon than with a pair of latex-gloved hands in one's mouth.

  3. You could call it, "antique", "aged" "shabby chic" "white washed"-they all mean pretty much the same thing. The secret is you don't admit it wasn't SUPPOSED to look like that.

  4. I have no doubt that you are going to do something amazing. It's just a little bump in the road that will make you come up with something creative. Can't wait to see the end result.

  5. Does this mean that you are going to have to cut your hours at the sandwich shop to have time for this?

  6. Wait...IS THIS THE FIREPLACE?? YES--IT ISSSSSS! Are you going to paint it black after all?

    I agree with you when I have great ideas in my head that turn out like crap in reality, but then again I agree with your friends that you can make anything look good!! I'm excited to see what you come up with.

  9. It looks like the backsplash behind Paula Deen's stove on her Foodnetwork show.

    It has possibilities. ; )
