I am always so indecisive. But then if you have been reading this blog for any length of time, you already KNOW that. So it's no surprise that I have gallons of painting still around the house because I change my mind every other day.
Back and Forth and then - Back and Forth.
I want to tile my backsplash.
I was SO sure that it had to be white subway tile....timeless.
Timeless means I won't regret it. Right?
But before I do it, should I wait to get a new countertop? I have plain old laminate where the back curves up. I want a shiny black granite countertop. If I put in tile now the space between the counter and the wall won't measure out right to patch it with tile later.
I should just wait. and....
do I REALLY need a new countertop?
I have so many other places my cash could go.
And of course I would need to get my dream farmhouse drop sink....
But, lately it seems like everyone has that white subway tile.
I hate being like everybody.
and while I don't even have GREEN in my decor....
I was LOVING this:
But of course then I wouldn't want the black granite , I'd want marble...........
and then the other day I stumbled across this Ginger's re-do:
Add to this the fact that I just came across a box of cool little tiles in BLACK, BROWN and a BRONZY-GOLD and I also have several TUBS full of broken pottery, plates, mugs,
things-my-cats- have-broke, that I have been saving for SOMETHING.
Obviously their time has come.
BUT, maybe not.
I found this on Denise's blog:
this is her hand-painted living room wall.
I love the subtle colors and how they are soft instead of screaming.
and I DO have all those cans of paint....
So THAT'S IT!
I will paint the walls like Denise did. I'm thinking in greys and in more of a paisley pattern.
and WHEN I finally get my countertop, I will tile the backsplash like Ginger did!
So that's the plan...for now.
To paint the walls, before I tile (or do the floor).
