A Woman's Prerogative

Do you remember a while back, when I tried using
other paint colors besides satin black?

Do you remember this homeless tin shelf
that started out a deep red?
And then became a lovely tan?Well, I changed my mind.
It's a woman's prerogative isn't it?
I finally decided where I wanted the shelf,
so I had to do a second makeover.

This is what it looks like now.I painted the fleur de lis details to show them off.
Now it looks right at home.

I like the tan but the white looks fabulous against the red wall. Would you explain to my hubby that it is a woman's perogative to change her mind - he doesn't get it. :-)

My favorite part about this picture is the little pumpkin on the little black chair. :) I am still thinking about what I can do with you to make you famous. Hope you're still thinking about it too!

Love it! I love this whole arrangement! Especially that little chair on the shelf. :)

Bettsi said...

I love it too, but I am wondering...is it too high on the wall or is it just right? Sometimes it's hard to know the scale from a photo. I love the way you picked out the fleur de lis detail!

Angie said...

Nice work. That fits perfectly with the desk. Love what you do!

Heather said...

Wow! That looks fantastic! Great job, Joy. I have a desperate and imminent painting problem that I am begging for advice with on my blog! You are the paintingist gal I know, so if you have a moment and can pop over for a thrice to share your great wisdom, I would surely be grateful!

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

WooHoo. This looks amazing! Are we all invited to come over and see the whole room? This looks great Joy, it really looks tied in with the other things in the room. It will also look great when you decorate it for the holidays! Yippeeee!
