Bust a Move

"Don't just stand there....bust a move!"..Young MC

That's what I told myself this week.
I could either keep moping and feeling down
or I could get up and do something.

So that's what I've done.

The divine Mr. M is putting in a new closet system for me
and I just had to take advantage of a golden opportunity.
Since everything was off the shelves, I painted the wall
a nice off white called French Canvas .

It still looked kinda.....mmmmpphh.

So I  decided to break out a stencil that I've been saving for some pillows and stencil the wall.
Why the closet?
Because I'm a big, fat chicken.

I love the look of stenciled walls but would never commit to myself doing it in a major room.

I can barely sign my name legibly, yet alone paint.

So, I'm starting with the closet.
I'm stepping out on a limb and trying something new!

I can't wait to show ya'll the fininshed product.

Besides, if it's not that great......
only Mr. M and I have to look at it everyday.


  1. can't wait to see more! loved chatting with you today.


  2. And if it looks wonderful (which it will) then you can come out of the closet! LOL

  3. I stenciled an old table top that I had sanded down & stained. It actually came out better than I thought! I know what you mean though, I would love to stencil my fireplace but I'm a BIG FAT CHICKEN TOO ~ LOL!!! Good luck with your project!

  4. i bet it will be awesome! can't wait to see it all finished!

  5. How very brilliant are you? Practice in the closet. Do let us know when you come out of the closet. And bring pictures with you. K? ~Mindy


You know you've got something to say...
