Do you have a big blank giant enormous wall in your house?
Actually, I think we have the biggest, blankest wall in North America.
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It just looked unfocused and outdated and a little like I was trying too hard.
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.
