I made something ugly. In fact, I made it hideous. Like, really really bad. I don’t even want to even share pictures of it. But I am. And you can leave feeling better about your projects.
See? Not at all what I had envisioned. Not even close. I painted it yellow, then I painted it a second coat of yellow, hoping that would help. Then it looked like a giant pastel Easter egg. So then I put antiquing glaze over it. And then it looked like an Easter egg that had been dropped in the mud and rolled around a bit.
And then I wanted to cry.
But I didn’t.
I tried, I failed, I moved on…..
and painted it white-as soon as I physically could.
And all was right with the world.
-Taking a risk is just that, sometimes I will fail.
-Failure is not the end of the world.
-I learned a lot from my failure-I will never again put a glaze over yellow, at least that particular shade.
-White paint,like love, covers a multitude (like 4 coats) of sins.
