Earlier this year I took up doodling. Yes, it is a funny way of saying I took up a fun form of amateur drawing. I loved the look of the fun letters and an excuse to try my hand at this form of art. I felt it would look wonderful in my scrapbooks, that is to say, if I ever return to put all those photos in a book. I didn't think it would come in handy so fast.
After a long week I needed paint therapy. When daughter asked for help with her new place, well I jumped at the chance. YEAH! someone needs me for something fun! I grabbed my brushes and headed out the door. She is trying to please her new future hubby, so choosing the right colors and style are very important. I heard all the "he doesn't like, and I can't have"....list from future hubby! No flowers....nothing that looked too girly....on and on. I wanted to yell..."but sweetheart you are a girl and will be living here also!!!!"....I didn't, I used the duct tape. Paint was chosen and I proceeded with her desires, hoping she would come around to maybe something that looked like a woman would live here.
Finally mother would be able to say what she had envisioned all along. I picked up the fabric, which I will sew for her shams and suggested the shapes.
I boldly started in the corner...there wasn't any chance of going back, I was committed.
Now to the wall on the other side of the bed. Each of these would frame the bed.
I placed a small one above the mirror on the vanity...the fur down. Another come up the corner of a wall framing her large wardrobe.
I had a blast...daughter was totally delighted. Now to finish painting her side tables...they are being spray painted silver. Then on to the headboard and shams for the bed.
Sometimes Mom does something right! I think this one is a winner....now to wait until March to see what her hubby will say....she is trying to keep it a secret.
