Truth or Tall Tale

8.26.2011

I was walking through the dining room the other day and I hear psssst. I stop in my tracks. I hear it again. Pssst. "Okay, what is that?" I say.

Over here. I turn around. What? Who? It's me the hutch. You know you have been rolling around in that head of yours about whether or not to paint me and not just the inside back wall of me. Hey, I have been this vivid shade of green, which I will say did look pretty sharp on me for a while.

Then you went and painted the walls and thought I needed a softer shade of green. I liked that, too, but for weeks you have thought about different colors for the outside of me. You have thought about black like a cabinet you have seen on a blog and then you even thought about Aubusson like the chest, but figured that would just be too much. Let me tell you what I think I should be dressed in. Come here and listen up.........

Stay tuned for more of this story.

Truth or tall tale? hmmmmm

Reveal coming soon. I think you will like her new dress!

  1. Oh...I am so excited to see what color she will be.

    It's a big project, but as we know, the ASCP makes even the most daunting painting projects so much fun.

    Can't wait for the reveal : )

    PS I LOVE the Abusson chest : )

  2. Girlfriend, that's just plain spooky!
    I'm so glad I'm not the only one that hears furniture whisper... "paint me!"
    Can't wait to find out what it "compelled" you to do.

  18. I am so curious to see what you do.I have just found your blog today and have been looking at all your wonderful pics. Do you ever paint a piece and then later on miss having it the way it used to be?

  24. Catching up finally...The Hubs got his total knee replacement surgery, way, way bigger deal than we thought...loved your sisters little round ottoman...lusting after that little guy, Leila is over the moon adorable, those eyes..how can you stand it! Not even gonna try and guess what's going on with your paint re-do...oh and a new granny car that is hysterical...but certainly a great reason to get a new car..although your other ride wasn't bad!

  25. I'm not at all surprised that your furniture speaks to you! I'm sure that mostly the chairs and tables and chests are saying 'I'm gorgeous!'

  26. Well, this certainly got my attention. NO whispering in MY home..my furniture screams HELP! and has for awhile. Can't wait to see what you do.

  30. OOO, Thank God...I was beginning to worry about myself...hearing voices...all the time..."Paint me...
    Paint me...don't worry about Annie Sloan paint being so expensive PLUS postage...I'm worth it!"
    SHUT !! UP!!

    I can't wait to see what dress this little beauty will be wearing the next time we see her.

  32. Some of my furniture has been talking to me too lately, like a chest of drawers in my bedroom...but I put some tape over its mouth to keep it quiet. LOL I am sure whatever color you choose it will be beautiful and I cant wait for the reveal.
