Once upon a time there was a lovely princess who liked to spend her time going charity work and basically cheering the locals with her presence. She was a simple girl, she liked to be surrounded by chiffon and her personal jester.
Spring break descended and all the court physicians went on noble quests to ski resorts and to do selfless acts at tropical resorts. This left the princess too much time to think. So instead of spinning straw into gaudy, she plotted. She searched the sacred text for things that appealed.
Oh, no, just no. I can’t show that off!
That would be pressing my luck with the pups!
Ok, even I don’t have time for that! Hmm…..Ermagerd!!!!
This is for show of course, I don’t use such things.
Alright, I have the whole weekend and we’re off to Lowes. How long could this take? I like to be in bed by 9 or so and the Scientology docu is on HBO sunday evening. No problem.As you know, nothing is easy. Me B has been trekking to the Lowes so often he is confused for staff- altho he is often more helpful! My one weekend project turned into a week of torture only enlivened by the newly gained knowledge that eating spackle does not kill your dog- it only makes them more stupid.
I have been in the cycles of hell- paint, touch up, paint ceiling, touch up trim, re edge walls, repeat until you finally paint ‘all work and no play makes Anne a dull girl’ all over every surface.
Long and painful story short, I went from this strangely pig bellied colored cave:
A color that made putting on makeup impossible! I’d see myself as Audrey Hepburn, but really be Baby Jane Hudson!?
Totally hot, amiright? With more pinterest consult, the ultimate neutral for small windowless spaces that if not for a toilet and shelving could be closets- Courtyard Shadow! Yes, the description of the sculking groundskeeper in a Christie novel is my color of choice!
Ooh, ahhhhh. Boring. Well, it is what it is. Ok, let’s wrap this up with the fancy reveal!
I’m not usually a seafarin’ gal, but mermaid librarian prints set the whole thing off:
For the keen of eye, yes, I have one more bit of touch up by the shower curtain, but I will have to get back to that. I owe Ms Holloway some attention. She is cutting her eyes at me! She needs her skirt.
Happy Easter everyone!
