M is for MADNESS, and yet more chalk paint projects in the making.

This Red M, just had a bad memory attached to it.
 Every time I would look at it, I though of THAT day!
I really messed up! 
If you care to read it go HERE
 ( FUNNY to see my thoughts last year) And I said I would NEVER be in a magazine!
I happened to have a little sample of Chateau grey chalk paint and just had to use it.
  The summer read has not been picked up once yet!
ahhh..but the M looks so much better. I think it is a more Mature color too.
I did not distress it, I liked how creamy and smooth it looked.
That's all I got for tonight, but it sure makes me happier to walk in my son's room, and not 
see RED!

I will be joining:
 Miss Kim for her 
WOW me Wednesday party.
and Swing into Spring party
Inspiration Friday

MY NEWBIE party is cranking this week..
COME join in if you are new to blogging

I love red, but I agree that the M looks better painted grey. What amazes me beyond belief is how clean your son's room is!!! I don't think I can even see the floor in my son's room! He must be a really tidy person!

Oh yes, I needed to refresh my memory about the red M. How could I forget that? The gray makes it looks much more polished & has no bad memories attached to it.

Good idea to get rid of the "red memory" :) The gray on the M looks great and fits in nicely. I love quick pick me ups!

I remember that day well. I think it takes on a whole new look now. And is so much better that we have put that bloody red in our past. But, how is the garage floor doing? Any new colors around.

I had to read about that day. How horrible but hilarious! I would have gotten rid of the red reminder a long time ago.

Your son's room is darling and I like the gray much better. Isn't it funny how such a small change can make a difference?

Isn't it funny how the smallest tweaks sometimes yield the biggest changes? LOVE the bedding by the way.

I remember the 'story', but I had to go back and look at it again. You're so funny. What a mess that was!

I like the new color for your 'M'. I don't think I would want to distress is either. Some of the red would show through!! :)

Hope you're having a great week.

You are hilarious! I just loved reading your old post and cracked up about the "never be in a magazine" part! I'm thinkin' I would want the red gone too after that craziness and I love the calm soothing impact it now has. Thanks for sharing this (and the back story!) with us at Inspiration Friday my friend~
