What To Do With a Big Blank Wall

What To Do With a Big Blank Wall

 

Do you have a big blank giant enormous wall in your house?

Me, too.

Actually, I think we have the biggest, blankest wall in North America.

Truly.

You might not have noticed its big blankness because it’s cleverly disguised by the giant multi-paned chalkboard that takes up almost the entire space.

But before that chalkboard…..well…..that wall would totally have shown up on Mr. Blackwell’s worst dressed list.

At the very top.

I tried everything.  I painted it khaki and I painted it gray and I hung yard sale frames and then coasters and then iron pieces ……and nothing worked.

It just looked unfocused and outdated and a little like I was trying too hard.

*sigh*

Kind of like my perm from 1994.

All ratted out with split ends and nowhere to go.

And then I saw a broken 40 pane window in the trash….and the rest is history.

 

So just in case you have a big blank wall……and no one has thrown away a window in your neighborhood…..I posted some creative ideas on what do with all that blank space over at the Lamp’s Plus blog today.

And can we keep the whole split-ended perm ratted up with Aqua Net thing……just between us?

I wouldn’t want the walls to talk. :)

Step-By-Step

 

I am not a very good step-by-step project person.

I want to be.

From the top of my head to the very tips of my Ripley’s Believe it or Not toes.

And if we had a giant blog yearbook and we could all vote on superlatives, I would want to be voted “Most Likely To Write a Step-By-Step Post.”

But I know that honor will always remain a distant dream.Continue reading
