I'm never too scared to try out a new idea or try to recreate something I've been inspired by, but today I realized something... just because someone else did it, doesn't mean I'm gonna get the same result.
I've always said you should love your furniture and I don't love this.
Let me give you an analogy. I feel like I just made cake and left out an ingredient so I added a substitute but the subsitute made it dry so I added a really sweet icing and that didn't help so now I'm throwing in ice cream. My end result tastes nothing like the Paula Dean outcome I wanted but some off brand dessert. And you "Paula Dean's" out there will know who I mean Tuesday when you see the reveal.
For now I'm leaving it as is. Maybe I won't feel so beat tomorrow and will fix it up.
