Conversations From the Meadow House

As he cracks open the can of paint he asks,
"Why aren't we painting it white?  It's just a closet."
 
She replies,
"Because Sisal is pretty."
 
About an hour later...
 
He cracks open a second can of paint and asks,
"Why aren't we painting the shelves and trim the same color as the walls?  It's just a closet."
 
She replies,
"Because Glass of Milk is pretty with Sisal."

 
Two coats and an hour and a half later...
 
He's putting the lid on the paint can and says,
"This was a lot of work for a closet."
 
She's staring at the ceiling and replies,
"I think we should change the light fixture out for a pretty crystal chandelier."
 
He looks at her incredulously and says,
"But, it's just a closet!"
 
Seriously.
One would think, after 10 years of marriage,
conversations such as this would no longer be happening around here.

Oh how funny! I completely agree that sisal and glass of milk belong together and a chandelier in a closet is pure genius.

Seriously is right. We're at 31 and it's still happening around here I'm always dumbfounded at the objections and he's always dumbfounded at the results. You'd think he'd have figured it out by now, but no... too funny Alisa!

You had me laughing out loud and I just had to share this with my husband as it totally sounds like a conversation that we would have. I bet your closet is now gorgeous. I hope you get the chandelier. :)

What a beautiful inspiration board. I would go in that closet with you. I mean, after the chandelier is installed....

Cheryl Carey Bass said...

Yes, seriously. One would think. I feel the same way about the conversations we have ... really? You mean you don't know this about me yet? At list Farmboy helps you paint. I'm on my own. BTW, can't wait to see what those weird color names actually look like! :)

Oooooh, Robin! I want in on that, too! 7 minutes of heaven in the closet with you and Alisa! Woo hoo! :)
