|Do you think Humpty drinks SkinnyGirl cocktails? Unlikely.|
Everybody has one – that place in your house where the excess lives. Sometimes it’s just a drawer, or maybe it’s a spare closet or empty corner cabinet filled with all the idle, perhaps unattractive, accumulations of life.
|Admit it...you have a room that needs to be Put Back Together Again too.|
These Humpty-Dumpty spaces should come with warning labels: Beware of Infestation. Junk multiplies, and soon that one junk drawer becomes two (I have two in my kitchen alone), and the door to that cabinet/closet takes extra muscle just to shut properly.
Take my advice: talk Humpty off the wall, before all his pieces clutter your house.
It’s time for an intervention when an unintended space, i.e. something that is not a closet, cabinet or drawer (a room per se), becomes your clutter receptacle.
So on a whim and a spare moment, I decided to clear it out, mix my own color (that was interesting), and put it back together again in some fashionable manner.
|All the King's horses and all the King’s men (uh, me)….|
and I sort of put it back together again.
The color came out pretty well -- it's sort of a pinkish/purplish greige in a very high gloss. I want to accent the space with gold (going for a Hollywood Glam Look). The gold leaf wall sculpture was a $20 el-cheapo purchase from Michael's. I used wire-cutters to snip off the dinky looking birds and other stuff and spray painted the leaves gold, et voila!
'Mr. T' -- our once lime green Foo Dog finally found a home, plus a light grey paint job:
|Mr. T, our Foo Dog: "What you talking abt. Foo(l)? Quit yo jibba-jabba!"|

(in the fabric you see in corner).
Yes, I literally upped the bar this past weekend. It still has a bit to go with styling etc., and I've got another picture getting re-framed. I’ll post finished version soon!
Til then, at least Humpty Dumpty has a placed to get smashed, properly. Cheers!
