Just Do It

    I painted my dining room red twenty-six years ago. I was ahead of the curve then, but the curve has moved on. My dining room was outmoded, outdated, and in serious need of a change. Or at least until yesterday. The Husband and I have been busy bees. After trying out four different shades of gray (no pun intended), I settled on the right one, and after church yesterday, we promptly got to work. I am amazed at the difference one gallon can of paint can make. Talk about transformation!
    You know how one change leads to another. Before the paint was dry, I immediately began thinking about changing out some of the decor. There is nothing like a new wall color to give a girl a little inspiration. Then it was off to Pinterest I went. I found some gallery walls that seemed to reflect a bit of the vibe I was going for. I asked The Husband if he had any objections to moving the Civil War Great-Grandfather's portrait (never mind that this was a Yankee Colonel who married a lovely Confederate flower of a girl despite the rigorous objections of her Nashville family...but that's a story for another day), when he said that he did not, I promptly went to work.
    I was amazed at how quickly the wall went together. I like it. I mean I really really like it. I have one picture that will be reframed, and then I plan to buy some of those little do-hickey things you put on the back of pictures to anchor them and keep them from jiggling around when a herd of elephants comes through the room.
   Here are a couple of pictures of my wall. And yes, I know that some of the pictures are a bit whompyjawed. But, hey, that's what happens when you don't plan ahead, you just do it! Besides, the do-hickeys will help with that!
