Sugar Soap didn't work ...
So I still have a big brown square on the pale blue wall ... as I laid in bed this morning looking around I became painfully aware of the three yes three different shades of white in our room and the blue walls and ceiling. Sigh.
I also just want to clarify something about my Oriental lily painting. Its not that I am flippantly tossing it away, I did put effort and love into painting it 8 years ago but what inspired it and how I was feeling at that time are no longer relevant in my life. There are things I love more or that are more deserving of space in my home. So Lillies are waiting in the corner and de constructed but will go out sometime soon. Its not 100 % easy ... but not really difficult either when I keep the concept of us, home, family and personal growth in focus.
Yesterday I put this together as something new to hang in our Bedroom. I cut and complied a stack of Black and white photos and put them in this Box frame that has been under our bed for a LOOONG time. I always thought it was black but as I dusted it off it is actually dark cherry coloured wood! Even better than black : )
I think it cost about $15.00 for the photos, a lot of which I didn't use here, as well as the card stock I anchored them on. I had most of the photos printed as 2 per 6x4 mobile phone prints and a few 6 x 4's as well.
As the Sugar Soap didn't get the stain off and keeping in mind we are no longer stagnating, thinking about selling ... this is our living room floor right now. Good bye soon to blue walls and ceiling ...
Lets just hope I am more capable at painting now that I am not 8 months pregnant. That's the last time I tried and I found it most frustratingly difficult. I'm not expecting a walk in the park here but do expect it to be less laboriously difficult without the big tummy and tired Mummy.
