How do you feel about color? any hangups? I mean really! Does it intimidate you a bit, not at all? Well..it does me. Or did.
For years though, as much as I loved red, I would never, ever wear it! I was raised to think that a woman in a red dress was...well, loose! Yes, loose! A hussy! LOL Trying to call attention to herself. So..I never wore red.
As a child I had a little red and white polka dot dress that I loved and would have worn every single day had I been allowed.
Brown, blues, greens, and prints were of course just fine. But red? Never!
Not any more.
I change what I like to wear, what color I like to decorate with and all that sort of thing, often.
I've been through a faze where I painted EVERYTHING red. I still love red and it's a favorite color..
I looked around and spotted my very old birdcage that my daughter, Maryalice, gave me for my birthday when she was in high school, and she is now 50 years old and got the urge to paint. It was turquoise and pretty chipped and beat up. But look at it now.
As usual, I'm not finished with it and just popped a froggie in it for the picture.
Cute little tabletop cage was sitting there a total mess..so it got a bath of Strawflower too!
Was I done?
I headed for the living room and ....
WHY NOT, my pea brain shouted!!!
...off to the painting table went the first end table!
I have had these for ...so many years. They are old and split and one even appears to be handmade...but with ANOTHER coat of paint...they are new to me!
..next came the other end table..
and next ...the other end table, and then....
...the coffee table. All of it is second hand. The coffee table was a fairly recent garage sale find..for $10 or $15 dollars...I forget.
Cord? What cord? Do you see a cord?
I don't see a cord! :)
All done! I did it all within a couple of hours..at the very most.
So... Yes? No? Maybe?
P.S. What I wear? ALL the beautiful colors I can find. I favor turquoise to wear right now. Some kind person said it matched my eyes and made them look pretty and you KNOW how that effects us women! Men too! They don't fool me one bit!! LOL
