I Want


I really wanted to use this paint.



And I really wanted to use this remnant of cobalt blue velveteen.

And I really wanted something shiny with a little funk to it to use in the bedroom.


And I know the risk I am taking

in continuing to post photos which include my daughter’s zebra rug,


even though

I want that too-


that want is not coming true.

Nice job! I have a stool that needs a redo, but I keep putting in on the back burner. Maybe your daughter will forget you have the rug. :D
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and staying cool.

So cute, Laura!! Hmmm...maybe you can work a trade for the rug!

Happy Saturday!

Barb @ The Everyday Home said...

LOL, you're so funny. How cute! I'm glad you got *something that you wanted. :)

Patricia @ 9th and Denver said...

Oh! that is a good combo.
that pretty.
...hmmm... tell your daughter your holding the rug for ransom... and you'll only take the rug as payment!

That turned out so well - it should not be separated from the Zebra rug. Ever.

I'm warning you...if you don't quit showing how fabulous that rug looks, she's gonna remember and come get it. And if she doesn't...I will!

Jojo said...

I've used that paint on so many things. What is it about gold finishes...I can't resist them!

That stool is beautiful with the royal for a queen!

I think you are the boss of her

Such a cute piece! Love it and the zebra rug! :o)

NanaDiana said...

Dare I say it is very RICH looking or is that too cheesy? Love it! xo Diana

Always Nesting said...

A little elegance with a little sass. That's a great combo for the little stool.

Karen said...

Love the stool! No comment on the rug as it will only draw more attention to it and then Lauren will suddenly say, "Mother, get your own rug!" Right?? lol
As for the gold spray paint. You bring back fun memories of my grandmother "Jean" whom we claimed would spray us gold if we stood still long enough. She loved gold spray paint! Your stool turned out GREAT!
The start to a really good day... my first cup of coffee and a fresh post by you.

Your little stool looks great! I had a little aunt that loved gold spray paint. Once when I went to visit she had just spray painted her toothbrush:)

Surely she'll give up on getting it back soon.
