Let me start by saying I’ve missed you. I didn’t mean to miss posting recently but life was busy, like painting banners, DIY 8ft painted marquee and float decorating…that all only means one thing, high school homecoming spirit week! Anyway, I’m glad to be posting today and I’m SUPER glad you’re here.
I have decided to start back posting my Quick Tip Friday series. It seems to be popular with you all (me too!) so if you have any burning questions you’d like me to answer on another addition of Quick Tip Friday, just comment below. It just may turn into a blog post.
I know you’ve heard people say many times, follow your gut when decorating your home.
Easy right? Wrong!
Sometimes we are stubborn, sometimes we let friends offer too much advice, and other times we try to follow a trend.
You know when something doesn’t feel right but you carry on with it anyway because you feel like you have invested too much time into it? That is what has happened to me with our black painted kitchen cabinets.
Here is a photo in case you are new here and did not see the kitchen makeover back in the spring.
I am afraid to say, I must paint them, again. It’s weird really, I think they turned out great but something in me just doesn’t love it. It’s funny too because I have been loving black cabinets for years and was determined to paint mine.
In the end, I have to follow my gut. Every time I stand at the kitchen I’m thinking about those dang cabinets. Crazy, I know but it is bugging me so much. I keep telling myself it’s just paint, change it. The cost to do so is very minimal but if you have ever painted a kitchen before it’s time consuming and wreaks a little havoc on the muscles. I will keep you posted on what I do with the cabinets, I plan to get them done before Thanksgiving.
What I would like for you to take away from today’s quick tip is this: “just because it’s pretty doesn’t mean you have to keep it.” If you keep trying to live with something that you know in your heart isn’t what you were hoping for then change it. The sooner you do the happier you will feel in your home.
Is there anything in your home that your gut has been telling you needs some change? I love chatting with you so please share.
