The reason for my title is because I know what many of you said in your comments to me on my post about painting my glass cabinet. A lot of you said not to paint it, and some of you said to go for it. I had mixed feelings about painting it, but in the end, curiosity got the best of me. I decided to go for it! It was scary, because I knew I might be making a bad decision. What I learned though, is that if I didn't go for it, I would never be satisfied with the "what if". I actually like it and don't regret it.
By painting it, I feel like the room isn't lopsided anymore. I feel like the fireplace is no longer "squished" looking between the two cabinets.
See what I mean? I need balance! That's just me.
I also changed up the inside of the cabinet just a bit. Now that it has a lighter color, I felt like a few accessories with the books was in order.
Please excuse the glare. The sun was shining brightly and caused reflections in the glass. I added some silver pieces and antlers. At the bottom, I have some baskets. So now I have a mix of texture and shine mixed with the old books.
I like the grey color next to my white sofa too.
So there you have it. I listened to my little voice in my head and took the plunge. I like the cabinet both ways actually, but in the end, strived for balance on the back wall. I'm pleased. Do you ever listen to that little voice in your head too? It's always there isn't it?
Oh, and on a final note, I must leave you with something I saw that made me smile. It confirmed that Spring is indeed upon us.
Do you see what's in his beak? He's collecting materials to build his nest. I only wish it wasn't from my coco planter baskets on my front porch!
Thanks for stopping by!
