I’ve been reviewing my own posts of late. My blog has gone quickly from:
“isn’t this a cool idea and aren’t my friends wonderful!”
“stupid chair won’t go back together! Dumb house has too many outlets!! Why do people paint innocent furniture ugly green colors!!!”
I seem to have found my “voice” but I’m tempted to re-title the blog:
Cheltenham Road – The Cranky Side of Furniture Repair
I’ll try to keep things a little more positive and a little less crabby from now on (I said “try.” I’ve known me all my life – trust me, there’s still gonna be cranky).
So, with this new, sunnier, outlook let me first welcome to the new followers and subscribers! – thank you very much for joining!
And then I really have to say how much I appreciate all of you who comment regularly and thank you very much for the ideas about how I can circumnavigate my photography background problem. I love (and can’t believe I didn’t think of) the simplicity of using just a sheet hung on the wall. And the versatility of making a Design Wall as Patti suggested has got my creative juices flowing!
However, my sister Paula suggested just getting a Green Screen – like they use in the movies for special effects. She says they are quite affordable and easy to use which she knows because she has one (which makes her waaay cooler than I’d imagined but is also going to make me doubt every vacation photo she sends from this point forward).
I think the Green Screen idea has amazing possibilities!
“What’s that you say, Blogger X? You’re bedside table is featured in this month’s Country Living? Awesome!”
“Miss Mustard Seed, Luckets looks like an amazing place and I’m so glad your beautiful furniture is featured there. Congrats!”
“Me? Oh, the desk I’ve been working on? How nice of you to ask!
It’s at Versailles!”
“What can I say? They called!”
See what I mean! Problem Solved! Thank you Paula!
OK, I’m headed back to the garage. I have tons of furniture to finish up as, once again, the Rose Bowl has snuck up on me and I’ve got to get things finished (and I’m scrambling because Buckingham Palace rang me looking for a new side table. Photos to follow!)
Happy Thursday Everyone!
