I’d like to say it was because there just wasn’t anything sad happening, but I think it’s just me getting old. *smile* Maybe I need reminders- any suggestions?
Well, on to February: I’m the first to admit this isn’t really sad, but I did learn something from this little chair experiment in color.
I’m not sure if it’s about the chair or about me, though.
Back in October I shared with you these chairs (4 of them) I found on Craigslist:
I had been searching for chairs for awhile and just wasn’t finding anything I liked (um, in my price range…) and we were having a dining chair crisis. And I’m being serious: while I was lallygagging on Craigslist, the chairs we did own were breaking one by one.
So when I found these chairs for $5 each and they were STURDY (it’s funny how that trumps style when chairs are breaking right and left) I brought them home, thinking they would buy me some time to find some chairs I love.
I planned to paint them, but first I took them to my step dad’s house and he helped us to shave off the front legs so they aren’t so blocky looking. So far, so good.
And since I always paint everything white, I thought I’d branch out with another color.
Here’s what I learned about painting chairs a color that stands out from everything else in the room:
Which is great if you’ve got a lovely chair to show off.
Luckily, this isn’t too sad because I only painted one- and I can’t believe I took the time to let it dry and bring it inside to test it out before painting all of them! That’s really not like me.
Little blessings, people, little blessings!
Would you like to share anything sad (or not-too-sad)?
