ummm.. if you look (it doesn't have to be that closely) something spilled all over the wall. the tv used to be in this spot and well... what happened was.. i set cranberry juice on top of it and somehow it got knocked over.. behind the tv.. all over the wall and carpet. i tried to clean it up but i could not get to it. then i forgot about it. then we rearranged our furniture and it aaall came crashing back to me. so i scrubbed mister wall and mister carpet.. it didn't work very well after months of the juice being all over it. the carpet was a little more cooperative than the wall actually..
anyway, i didn't fret too much about the wall. i knew it was going to be painted something.. some day.. i just had to figure out which color. from my last post you know i am madly in love with my harbor color paint. however, i knew that i should not have this color on every wall in my apartment. i didn't want to walk in and be assaulted with blue every which way i looked. so then i thought of brown.. but i wasn't sure. i don't know why, but it just didn't excite me. then i noticed something. the pictures of fruit on that wall have black, blue and red in them. so i thought, "ohmygoodness... should i use black? nooo.... thats crazy.... i cant.... i mean.. isn't that too.....??" then i looked at this wall
yikes. super black. i taped my wall and took a deep breath. then another. and probably a few more. and put some black paint on my wall.
and i decided it was pretty cool looking. i had to say... i even kind of liked it. maybe i liked it a lot. so i would say this risky little game paid off in the end. even though the first thing i heard when phil came home was, "whoa!! .... hey! i see the wall is black! wow!!...." hahaha he likes it now : )
and this is what she looks like with the kitchen all painted and pretty : )
