Have you ever started a project that seemed like "such a great idea" only to end up thinking, "What was I thinking?!" Oh yes, that was my yesterday. I loved the bold statement of this letter when I came across this image. It's bold in its simplicity.
I thought I had the perfect spot for it...the tiny foyer area by our front door. I busted out the blue tape to get a good feel for the overall look. I was still on board at this point, although I wasn't quite ready to make the paint commitment.
To avoid the mess, I decided I'd use grosgrain ribbon instead.
It was looking pretty good but in certain areas the ribbon would jump right off the wall! It was so frustrating. I tried several different options to correct the problem, but none worked. You know what this means, right? Either another trip to the store for different adhesives or time to bust out the paint. Hum? What to do?
Painting turns this little project into a major time commitment so I decided to call in the troops for their opinions.Bryn, "Not so much, Mom."
Reed, "I think it's cool!"
And, John, "Huh. Well, it's not my favorite. I don't think I'm feelin' it."
Me: "If nobody's loving it, then it's time to tear down and clean up!"
I'm sad to report there's no evidence of this project in my house today (except for the ladder that doesn't seem to know how to put itself away). Oh well, on the the next bright idea!
Any bright ideas coming to life in your house this weekend? Hopefully, you'll have a better end result!
