Have you ever thought about the phrase, “dry run” before? As I titled this post, I instinctively wrote that phrase and then wondered to myself, “What in the heck does that mean?”. I even had to Google it to make sure it was a real phrase and not just a figment of my imagination. Here’s the definition that I found, “a rehearsal of a performance or procedure before the real one”. Yep! That’s exactly what I meant!
So, today I will do a dry run of what I hope this blog evolves into. As I mentioned in my first post, I would love to get to the point that I actually have people who read my blog with the intent of helping other Armchair Decorators. I want to be able to posts pics requesting help with my own decorating questions and dilemmas and have readers comment back with their suggestions. Sounds pretty selfish of me if I were to stop right there, huh? But wait, that’s not all… I also want my readers to post pics of their questions and dilemmas. See, I’m not so self-centered after all.
Dry Run drum roll, please…….
Here is a chair that I bought at a yard sale for $3 (!) a couple of months ago. It has been sitting in my garage, waiting for me to do something amazing with it. Usually I am the first person to slap paint on any wood around, but for some reason, with this chair I might even consider keeping the (walnut?) wood. No promises, though. Anyway…
…this is where I plan to put it, kind of kiddie-corner in the, uhh, corner. Yep, it will block a little bit of my (most attractive- doesn’t everyone want them) mirrored closet door. That’s ok. Five days a week I get up at 0′ Dark-Fifteen when my hubby is still sleeping. To avoid waking him up, I pick out my outfit each night so it is ready and I don’t have to think in the morning. Right now I put my outfit in a nice pile right there, on the floor, so I would love to have that chair… right there. Keep in mind that this brownish paint will someday be covered with a nice, light gray paint. What will look good now, plus then?
Here are the fabric choices that I am considering.
So, what do you think? Which would you choose? Should I paint the wood or just wax it?
I really wish this wasn’t a dry run, because I could really use your advice. If you happen upon this post, please respond! (I will show “after” pics when it is done.)
So, what décor dilemmas are lurking in your Home? /
