I gotta say I have never been this indecisive with a project before and I blame my new "try to plan things out, think ahead a bit more and don't just throw stuff together you freak" outlook. Many, many plans are on deck for our living room, which is where Zelda will live, so I had to plan for what she will be surrounded by in a few weeks (you hear that Luke) rather than what she is currently surrounded by so I'm not "sprucing" her up again down the road.

So with the pattern on those pillows, as well as the pillows that will be going on the recovered sofa just across from Zelda (see I told you, many plans) there will be a lot going on. That nixed the idea of adding a pattern to the table, as I had originally thought. But Zelda has such interesting little details I did think she deserved a bit of flair to her.

I love her 'dipped' feet and her painted...molding, for lack of a better word. I had painted all of the molding but it started to look a bit crazy even for me. So I followed that standard fashion advice - Look at yourself before you leave the house, and take one thing off - I'm paraphrasing of course.
|Try painting those feet in a straight circular line. Impossible. |
She will get a touch up after the holidays.
|You can't tell from this angle, but I did paint her molding on all sides.|
Her lower level has already become a landing place for toys and she has been a Barbie dressing room on a few occasions. Welcome to the family Zelda.

Have you crossed any projects off your list recently? Have you ever tried to paint a straight line on a circle?
