Because I am too busy staring at my latest mistreatment adventure. Want to join me?
So I could climb on top of my kitchen counters.
Then with some tacking, shwooping, fluffing and hot gluing of fringe and I was done. Lickety split.
While I was up there, I yanked down some unfortunate greenery that I had put on top of the cabinets years ago in a misguided attempt to make the kitchen seem more homey. Does ivy really grow on kitchen cabinets? No. Should it? No.
I also followed the Nester's advice about the height of mistreatments. By tacking mine as close to the ceiling as possible, I hopefully created the illusion that the windows are taller, therefore making our kitchen seem larger. Did it work? Also, don't look too close, but I ran a tad short on the black fringe, on the middle window. It was close so I just tucked the edge back and called it done. Who would ever climb on top of my kitchen counters to check anyway?
Say it with me... it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful. There is freedom and beauty in that short, but powerful sentence isn't there?
