Please forgive me for not replying to your comments - I'm having issues with my emails,
I answer one or two and then it freezes -
You know - really - I could just scream - I buy a new computer and apparently I had a virus within 24 hours. A nasty one.
Anyway this post is not about my computer drama - it's about my kitchen drama :)
John was going to be out the entire day last week with meetings so I waited until he pulled out of the drive way and ran and got my paint.............I knew if I could finish the entire wall and put everything back before he came home - he'd never notice - even if the wall was going from white to BLACK !
In addition to trying to do it as quickly as I could - it was going to take 2 coats !
I've painted a wall or 2 black in every house I've lived in for the past 15 years and this is the point
where I always wonder what the hell I'm doing
And then the 2nd coat goes on ( and it never disappoints ) there's something about the clean lines of black against white that I just love
Did you know you can hang your rolling pin on a plate thingamajig?
I was able to get the wall painted ( both sides of the stove ) and everything put back before John walked in the door
I never said a thing..............
When he sat at the island having a glass of water..............looking in the general direction of THE wall...............
Suzan says - I cut some hearts out for Valentine's day
John says - Yeah - I was just looking at them
Suzan says - What do you think of them?
John says - Seems a little silly to me - it's just you and me here tonight -
Suzan says - I can't tell you how impressed I am that you noticed them
John says - smugly - Well it'd be pretty hard not to see them don't you think?
Suzan says - I suppose so................
Lindsay and Tony came over later for a coffee ( daughter and son in law )
Tony says - HEY ! That wall wasn't black on the weekend !
John says - What are you talking about?
Tony says - That black wall - it was white on the weekend
John says - No - it was always black....................
Suzan says - I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU TO NOTICE THAT WALL !
Lindsay says - It wasn't always black
John says - Well we have black walls in every room !
One of the guest rooms has a black wall HERE
and a wall in the entry way was painted black well over a year ago ( maybe two? )..............HERE
it no longer is
I swear to you if I moved one golf club from inside the bag he'd know it....................paint an entire wall black?
Not so much LOL
Ok - I'm off - I'm painting a desk today - ( not black )
You all have a wonderful Thursday
