I have reached a wonderful point in life where
it is ALL about comfort and ‘gilding the lily’.
Case in point.
I may not be willing to wear shoes that hurt,
but as you well know, I want my earrings to dangle
And so in the case of my finally finished guest bedroom,
I wanted it to look like a wonderful place to take a nap-
while resting under a chandelier and amid a couple of
And so I hunted and shopped the house and hunted some more.
I painted random pieces of furniture Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey ,
which didn’t try to make them look like more than they were,
I may not recommend Rubbing and Buffing an entire
iron bed in antique gold,
but it’s done,
and I love it.
And yes I even did a little antique gold spray painting in the room,
while trying to hold up a protective piece of cardboard.
You know I am a rule breaker.
And the feel of this 5x8 rug under my feet,
as I tested it in TJ Maxx
(yes, I took off my flip flops and tested it)
met my comfort approval.
And so my message to you dear daughters,
this damp chilly day,
is to find as much physical comfort as you can in your day
gilding your lily
or painting the barn as Papa would say.
