We all have them.
Do you ever think on a problem for what seems like ages, then all of a sudden "the perfect solution" pops into your head? You become excited and happily scratch "the perfect solution" at the top of your To-Do list. When time free's up, you gather your supplies with almost girlish delight (giggling to yourself how prefect it's going to be) and jump right in with gusto!
When your project is complete you stand back and admire your handy work, patting yourself on the back for being such a smarty pants!
Yeah! It's a great feeling isn't it.
Sure wish I was feeling it right now . . .
instead I'm shaking my head wondering where in the heck my "perfect solution" went so terribly, terribly wrong.
Do you see the light fixture over the kitchen table?
I've wanted to replace it ever since my kitchen remodel.
Replacement fixtures that I've liked are so similar to what I have now it seemed like a waste to toss the old one. My "perfect solution" was to spray paint the once white lamp shade with a cheerful red to give the mostly white space a pop of color. My plans all went according to plan until I hung the shade back on the fixture . . .
Ummm, I'm not liking it...
Yeah, it's not getting any better ...
I'm pretty sure I'm hating it now . . .
O.K.! Great! (hands in the air) . . .
Now all I see is a flying saucer!
Oh! You see it too!
Guess this proves I can't be a smarty pants all the time!
The search for a new light fixture will begin tomorrow. Any thoughts on where to begin my search? I can use all the help I can get at this point! LOL.
Have a great day,
