So, who wants to paint stripes?

A few months ago (read almost year) ago I wanted stripes. I wanted to paint stripes in our passage. Hubby advised against it, but of course, the wife wants what the wife wants.

Me: “But it looks so awesome my Hun, look here, look at how awesome it looks.”

Hubby: “I don’t think it’s a good idea.”

Me: “Okay, if it really sucks, if it has to be fixed, I’ll do it myself. I’ll paint it myself.”

We got white paint and blue paint, AND a laser (pronounced lay-zor cause we find it funny to say “lay-zor”). The wife gets what the wife wants.

All of this happened 11 months ago.

This past weekend I* painted the passage the same shade as the main living area in our house.

So, who’s up for painting stripes? Not me? Been there, got the t-shirt laser.

*Hubby helped of course. Did this teach me to listen to his decor advise? Probably not.

      Wow Fiona, you are too kind. That must be the nicest thing anybody’s said to me.
      I really love your blog too. So glad you did a post on Arts on Main. Your blog got me thinking, well, why the heck have I not been?! Hubs and I didn’t see the “Before I Die” wall when we went on Sunday 😦 But it was a truly great outing!

  2. Love the “if it doesn’t work out, I will fix it by myself” I use that one all the time! but it also ends up looking good, so I never have to fix 😉

      The “if it doesn’t work out, I will fix it by myself”-line gets used A LOT! So pleased to have found your blog. I hope you do a follow-up post once the resin on the crab is dry. 🙂

Penny for your thoughts...
