It was tired of being overlooked. Oh sure, it was tall and it was dignified.
But, it was tired. Tired of people walking right past it and barely noticing. Tired of being more ‘function’ than it was ‘form’.
It wanted to be ‘form’….it wanted to be wonderfully, beautifully ‘form’.
And then, one day, there was a flurry of activity happening all around it.
Drawers were being emptied, shelves removed, men coming in and taping and tarping and spraying.
And then came the day when those tarps came down, the tape came off and….
…it finally had it’s moment to SHINE!
No more hiding, no more being overlooked, no more people walking by without even noticing.
It was finally the best of both worlds. Perfect function meeting perfect form!
It loved that the little countertop area no longer disappeared as if it was in a cave.
And how all of the linens in the drawer popped against the creamy white paint.
And the glasses…oh the glasses suddenly looked like glittering gems inside the cabinet.
And while some may think that a paint brush should never have touched it.
And while I may have been very worried about what people would say after a paint brush/sprayer touched it.
In the end, it looks so happy and cheerful.
And it makes me happy and cheerful every time I come in from the garage, through the laundry room and see it there in front of me.
It’s still tall. And it’s still dignified.
But now, well now it has a spring (or 2 or 100) in it’s step, don’t you think?! 🙂
P.S. The color of paint used is called ‘Neutral Ground’ by Sherwin Williams. And we had it professionally sprayed because we were big ol’ chickens about painting it ourselves. 😉
