This is the vibe I am after. I realize that if anyone had doubts about whether or not I am a dork, my use of the word "vibe" just confirmed it.
I am smitten with the use of neutrals infused with pops of color. This is obviously not an office, but I think you get the idea. This leads me to my question. Yes, finally, there is a question.
I am getting to the question. Really, I am. I think it is important to note that the quivering toy poodle cowering under this charming chest acquired by yours truly at my used to be favorite haunt the Haltom City Rescue Mission Resale Store (may they rest in peace) is a cunning devil. Do not fall for the abused puppy act. It is impossible to take a picture at the new digs without Viv inserting herself and striking her best feel sorry for me pose. She is after cheese. Please do your best to ignore her ploy and focus on the matter at hand, which is this charming chest and the drafting table below. Would it be horrible to paint these items to achieve my dream?
I cannot decide. They certainly are not stunning examples of superior craftsmanship. Anyone who knows me knows that they were acquired for a song. However, I feel the tiniest bit guilty whipping out the Rustoleum on them when they have survived this long unaltered. There is also the possibility that I will paint them and then hate them. It is a conundrum.
The alternative is to change the design plan (as if there was one) and incorporate the two lovelies as is. So, please tell me what you think.
To paint or not to paint? That is the question.
* The drafting table pictured above is not the exact table I own, mine looks the same, but larger I
swiped used the image to spare you another horrible cell phone picture. I try to be diligent about crediting images, but unfortunately these were intended for personal inspiration. I do not have all of the links. Another example of why I suck at these decor posts.
** I DO intend to dust the charming chest before I paint it. (In case you were wondering). How embarrassing is that??
