Let's call her Bertha. She's a little wide in the hips, but her overall character is to die for.
Some people get writer's block. I get painter's block. I couldn't figure out what color to use today. Bertha deserved something spectacular and I couldn't decide on a color that would suit her perfectly. Yellow seemed too bright. Blue felt a little depressing. White was too boring. I kept grabbing paint cans. (Again, no hoarding here, but I looked through all 37 cans in my garage.) FINALLY, I decided on gray.
However, there was one slight problem... I didn't have enough of ONE gray, so I had to get creative with my mixing skills. Did you know that gray + gray + gray = GRAY??? Might have to teach that one to my fourth graders. I mixed the two lighter grays together and then poured a darker gray into the combo until I had the perfect shade. While I was pouring, I had another idea - this one will be shared in a minute - I don't want to ruin the surprise!
Bertha is already feeling sexier with her new and improved look.
Ready for the surprise? Wait for it... Okay... It's not that big of a surprise, but while we were pouring the darker gray into the lighter grays, I had a vision. I wondered what Bertha would look like with her drawers painted the darker gray. Her larger drawers were very plain, so I thought that this would give Bertha a little POP!
I couldn't get one of the drawer pulls off because the screw was stripped, so I decided to just paint over them. Nifty little trick on knobs... Screw them into the bottom of a box to help you paint them all the way around. This gives them a chance to dry without messing up the edges.
Here is the new and improved Bertha -
And now she's officially ready for her close-up.
