I know that every body's tastes change.............
it's a fact,...............it happens.
But lately I wonder how many personalities I may have because mine change so rapidly. Am I fickle, am I trendy, or am I just bored??
The piece of hardware above was just on a random door on a random store in Gardener Village. (In Salt Lake City Utah,.......................my favorite place.) The hardware is so old and classic. I can't imagine any one of my personalities growing tired of old classic things.
This crazy dresser, on the other hand, I made about 10 years ago. I still love all things whimsical,...but I am so over this dresser.
And,...it is so over itself.
One of the drawers has fallen out and I can't even put it back in (literally.)
So, here lies my dilemma..........what do I replace it with?? I would love to get an unfinished dresser and decoupage it with neutral toile and damask papers. I have looked all over the web at unfinished furniture and I can't find much of a selection. Am I looking in the wrong places??
Or, do I replace it with a "Bombay chest"? One of the rustic looking ones in ivory and celery colors. I don't really want to spend too much on it, but on the other hand I always end up with broken furniture,...so do I just bite the bullet and buy a nice piece that may actually survive my children for more than a few years?
I would just go with out one, but this piece earned the nickname 'crazy art dresser' because it does in fact hold all of my paints, brushes, watercolor paper, pastels, and I have even managed to stuff a few small canvases in it.
So you see...
I do think that replacing it is warranted,...
because in the long run it will be cheaper than the therapy I will need if I don't have my art as an outlet.
Anything can be rationalized if you try hard enough, right??
Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
