My Dark Side

No, I’m not getting all deep and dark with you…I’m just talking about walls, people.

I have a nasty little habit of inventing a new project in my head when I have 10 other projects I haven’t finished.  It usually stems off my latest obsession.  And today, it’s the dark wall.

Obsessed. In love. Ugh.  Can’t handle.

One of my favorite combos…black, white, wood, metal and a pop of color.  Too good.

I’ve even designated it a stand alone pinboard Dark Wall Love.

I think I know the perfect spot for this too.  Dare I say it out loud, errr, type it for all to see?  Disclaimer:  just a thought, not on to do list, might not, probably won’t happen.  I say this because I’ve got to paint wood floors, take up more carpet and paint over the mismatch of paint swatches I’ve made in our family room first.  And I guess if I’m still obsessed at that point, then maybe the half bath will get the dark treatment.

Thinking something like this with the high contrast of the white on bottom and dark on top.  My half bath art even mimics the art in this dining room.

These images get me all jacked up to get my paint brush out and ignore my other projects!  Good stuff, I tell ya!

I’ve ventured on the dark side once before when I painted our kitchen cabinets black and it was one of the best things we’ve done to update our home.  So who knows, maybe this project will make it to the real to do list one day. Smile

Have a very Happy Memorial Day Weekend !
