Three years ago, I had a Russian artist, Irina, paint roses on my dining room ceiling. At the same time she totally sucked me into a beautiful mural for my foyer wall and Venitian plaster technique for the wainscoating. I really do love it. It's truly gorgeous. However, at the time I didn't think about what it meant when you have artwork painted on the wall instead of just buying a piece of artwork. Commitment! That's what it means. Commitment! Now I'm totally stuck with the Laura Ashley Pale Sand #1 color behind the mural that ties into the dining room, great room and kitchen. I can't paint over it. Oh no. No way. Never. I'm ready for Laura Ashley to take a hike. But, now I've got this wall of Commitment! Forever! Unless I move, which is not likely, I'm stuck with this Commitment.
I now have a challenge to see what I can do to change the background color. In the meantime I'm just driving David crazy with cans of spray paint and asking him to spray everything white. He's so good to put up with all my whims. In fact he's the best commitment I made 17 years ago. Hmmm, when I look at the pictures and see how pretty everything is, maybe this artwork was a good commitment too. What do you think?
Have a great week and I'll keep you posted on my decorating itch.
This week IGF, paint and a husband that is a good sport
