No, I’m not Paul McCartney
Do you ever just …let it be? I will admit that more often that not, I don’t. I feel like I have to go one step further, even though I know it’s great the way it is.
I can’t leave well enough alone. Then, inevitably I look at it and think, “Nah. I don’t like it.”
Am I the only one that does that??? I hope I’m not the only one! I’d hate to feel alone in that!
If I’m not satisfied with a project, it’s usually because the colors are not exactly right or maybe I really just goofed up. But this time, I just did not like how it turned out. I should have stopped while I was ahead!
It was one of those ideas that I thought was a good one, but just didn’t quite cut it. I laughed and said it looked like faux croc skin!
If you remember, I showed it to you and questioned then if I needed to re-do it. At the time, I decided to live with it for a while, because sometimes things will grow on you. (Usually they don’t, but I thought I’d try!)
You should always go with your gut! And my gut told me, “YOU DO NOT LIKE THIS.” So, I decided to listen.
The first time, I wanted to do something different…something unique…It didn’t work. Chalk it up to trial and error.
This time, I decided that less was more. I think I need to learn that every makeover or project doesn’t have to be different or unique. Sometimes it’s ok to just make it simple.
It took about three coats, but since it was only the top of the table, it was fast, easy…and better! It’s now basic and modest, but clean and fresh.
Down the road, I could add some detail to it…but for today…let’s just let it be…
