Hi there. I goofed. For those of you that have been reading for a while, you know I recently painted my dining room cupboard. It was cherry wood, now it's gray. But only between the hours of 12:00-2:00 PM.
After that the pretty gray you see pictured above, turns into a ghastly shade more aptly named "Penitentiary
Gray", a rather sickly color with the most bizarre green undertones. My lovely painters were suppose to come back this week to put on the new hardware, but I told them to just hold off, because this Mama is picking a new color. For the outside at least. The inside, I love. Hard to tell in the picture, but easy to see in real life.
So, lessons learned:
1. If you are paying a fabulous designer for her opinion and she tells you (4 months prior to selecting a color) to go with a true french gray, please listen to her.
2. If your husband's instincts have been right when it comes to all other house related decisions and he tells you the color you are choosing is too dark, or too green, please listen.
3. If you don't like something right away in your home, it will not grow on you. God created our gut instincts for a reason, please use them.
PS. Thank you for all your kind comments on the stockings I made. I've received a number of emails requesting more details on how to make them. Really?! You want a craft tutorial from me?? I'm a little embarrassed because I'm not all too crafty, but rather than email all of the instructions, I will do a how-to post soon. Just please don't laugh! I tend to wing it :)
