I set my alarm for five a.m. so that I could spray paint in the cool of pre-dawn darkness. The 1980s French blue -- traditionally accompanied by pink and chickens -- had to go. Beige is the word. If I ever write an erotic best seller, it will be titled 50 Shades of Beige.
|Goodbye, mid-1980s blue! Goodbye, ghosts of chickies and bunnies!|
Darker browns are more sophisticated while lighter beiges and tans can be used anywhere. Brown's association with coffee and chocolate make it a sensual color.
This is now a more sophisticated project. It is also sensual. The darker brown will make the beige-background wallpapers "pop," right?
|I am completely adorable but not usable in anything larger than 1:48.|
|Well, except maybe a hat box.|
The furniture that caused me to think "oh, I could buy that little shadowbox and put furniture in it" is this dressing table and chair from Hobby Lobby, both from the jewelry charms section.
|If Barbie and Monster High came in 1" tall versions,|
they'd be pulling one another's hair to get this much glitz.
And so begins Phase 2: the eBaying.
