While playing catch-up yesterday....I developed a severe case of "keep-it-itis" and here's how it happened along with a list of symptoms to watch out for.
There's just something about warm, fresh, flowing air with no humidity that gets me going on long neglected lists, like a mad woman. So, since yesterday was one of those weather days....I went to town, painting my backed up pile of furniture. A few pieces for customers and a few for the barn market.
I pulled out several little tables I had stashed in the basement. Getting crazy with my brushes and after several hours, coats of paint and distressing (now pay attention this could happen to you) I started getting light headed, I think I began to hallucinate. My thoughts began to wander, my heart began to race. I started decorating in my head, all thoughts were starring the cutest little table ever....I recognized these symptoms immediately, "Crud! I've got it again!" KEEP-IT-ITIS
Now, the biggest problem with this affliction is that the only cure is to KEEP IT.....and that's just not an option right now.
When I got this little piece the only redeeming qualities it had were price and sweet little dangling drawer pulls. The finish was hideous an now, as it turns out it was a diamond in the rough and I want it in my house!So I thought I would try this home remedy, maybe, if I just post a picture of it on white Wednesday, it would be "kinda" like keeping it and maybe I'll be cured...I think it's working, well for now. Do you ever get keep-it-itis?
Joining in with Faded Charms White Wednesday..hope to see you there!
