So this week my Wild Hare involves the evolution of my foyer. The constant tweaking, twitching, rearranging and then the downright... hello sister... what the heck, reality check!
You see, when you stop listening to your own heart and your own voice and listen to others; when you lose track of who you really are, what you really love; when you get downright sucked into a fad, you never feel quite settled. You keep twisting, tweaking changing and then suddenly Viola'! You finally get it. You listen and you remember....
The Victorian fainting couch style with the beautiful mural fondly called (The Wall of Commitment" because it was hand painted by a Russian artist that sucked me into it and it cost a bundle so therefore I felt committed to keep it! Like forever!!! Like ever!!! Dag!!!).
While it did serve as a great photo op with the nieces and nephew, (yes we are all fainting on the fainting couch, hee,hee,hee) it was just too way formal for me. I'm a blue jeans and clogs girl for Pete's sake! I do love this photo though. It's a treasure!
Next we move on to the display cabinet with antique chair (the chair that the bottom is falling out of, the springs are shot, there is that nasty Naugahyde crappy fabric on it and David fondly refers to it as "Stinky Chair" because...well... it stinks). However, the green looks nice with the green in "The Wall of Commitment."
Next we remove the icky green "never gonna recover, stinky chair" and replace it with something a little more "me," simple and clean. We also replace the items in the display cabinet and change the positioning of items and photo on top of display cabinet. Again... all trying to deal with... you guessed it "The Wall of Commitment." Oh brother.....
Finally.... I bring you to now. To hell with "The Wall of Commitment"... paint over it already and move on with your life woman!!! You can rearrange all you want and you still won't like it! Get a grip you dorkwad!! I truly love Calm, Clean and Serene. I like Zen. Ahhh yes, Zen... Zen in 2010. I remembered... I love white and shades of white. I love monochromatic decorating. This is me. I may add some beautiful pictures from Ballard Designs, but until then I'm happy. Hello old friend... it's been a while.
