~ Day 11 ~
Seven years ago, when we moved this house, I wondered what this light fixture would look like painted black. So many times I considered investing the time for this short project – but life’s demands won out. When I considered 31 Days of Lovely – this project was at the top of my list. So we set some time aside – Tim removed the light and hug it outside for me to spray paint. I would have dry-brush painted it like I’ve done before with other lights, but since my fall I can’t bring myself to climb up on a ladder – not yet.
To get a little perspective – in the last seven years we have had a few major life changes – 3 weddings, 5 grandchildren, 4 high school graduations, 2 major surgeries, a job loss – career change and a zillion pancakes served in this kitchen. When I look at my overdue project in this manner – I go easier on myself. The time finally came and the project was swift and simple.
Plus, I have years of spray painting experience!
Now I no longer wonder what this light would look like in black.
