This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

When I saw this the other day, I knew I just had to get it. It was only $4.00, so I could justify spending the money.

I will likely put it up in my living room somewhere. However, the problem lies in the fact that it is black, and my living room is mostly brown tones.

The wall looks white in the photo because of my flash and bad lighting, but it is actually "cracked wheat" a yellowish tone. The rest of the living room is various shades of brown.

I am thinking about dry brushing it with some brown paint. I am not sure how well this would work as the sign appears to be a hard plastic.

Would you recommend trying to brush it with brown? Your advice and opinions are much appreciated.

Oh my gosh, Ter! I love it! I like how you did the pic of the B cool... you should print that and frame it and hang it up too :) You could do the B in an 8x10 frame and then do smaller pics of the flowers to put around it... that would look so cool :)

I think the black would look fine with brown tones. Although I already told you that in chat :)

It is so neat. Love it!

I agree that the black will look great with your browns. I mix lots of browns and blacks, actually. Hope you're doing ok. (((HUGS)))

What a great singh.
There is 2 things you can do if you want it brown
A spray paint it.
Be witch is what I would do.
Take and sand the edges all around and in the middle then take an antique medium and brushit on and then wipe it off. Then it will have brown tones
Or leave it how it is.

I have Brownfurniture moca walls yet most of my accent pices are black. Rember black is a nutral and goes with any thing..

I'm with Jen on the painting. I like her idea of sanding and then brushing over with the brown and wiping some off. I Think it will be stunning however you do it. And, as she said, the black would look great too.
