So this morning I was standing at my kitchen counter making a list before heading off to the grocery store.
As I was pondering what I wanted to make for dinner over the next few nights, I happened to look up at the chandelier hanging over my kitchen table. My first thought was, "Gosh I love those little shades!"
Megan and I found them on the sale table (Yay!) at Anthropologie a few months ago. There were exactly six left - a sign for sure that I needed them. I love the bright green and the little bees and butterflies have a fresh botanical feel.
Then my second thought was, "I am so tired of that chandelier!"
It has all the colors that I'm trying to phase out of my life - dark greens, golds and reds. I am so ready for a fresh look!
So the next thing I know I'm looking for green paint, in a bright fresh shade. I didn't have exactly what I wanted, so I just started mixing colors together. I wasn't even dressed for painting, but I was not stopping to change. And if you've seen me paint, you know that is dangerous!
I sat right on the kitchen table and just started painting, no plan, just paint. And believe it or not, I am not wearing any paint and my chandelier looks sooo much cuter!
It's not finished yet. I want to add some more color, maybe a little glaze. I'll need to play with it a little more.
But I already love it!
Sometimes you just have to act when the mood strikes.
Okay, now I'm off to the grocery store. I'm hoping there's no paint in my hair!
