…recieves it’s very first ‘makeover’!
For the record, our kitchen’s been in need of a makeover for over 20 years! Don’t even get us started on the rest of the house – sheesh! Let’s just say that in 1997; when we first moved in, the loungeroom itself demonstrated – perfectly – the decorator’s taste, in 60’s/70’s retro.
If; upon entering the house, you found yourself falling into a deep hypnotic sleep -brought about by the mind-messingly fine lines of the concentric square patterns – pulsing at you from the loungeroom walls – you wouldn’t have hurt yourself falling down! The lawn-green shagpile carpet – or at least what was left of it – would have cushioned the fall!
We kept the look for a time. It provided so much entertainment for out guests that we felt it should stay. I have to admit though, that the novelty wore off REAL quick! The first thing acted upon in our house, was that rather dismal shagpile carpet and it’s accompanying smell!
Anyways… the brown in the piccie above should back up what I’m trying to say. Frankly – anything – anything at all – is an improvement on any of the trimmings we’ve got, left over in this house.
Lastly – let me share the conversation that occurred when this fine piece of art was installed on this soon-to-be-demolished kitchen cabinet door yesterday:
“It’s nice to see original art son,” I say.
“It does have lines and dots in it Daddy,” states my 5 year old son knowingly!
“Not AB-original son,” says his mum – whilst I try to work just what in hell my boy might mean by this comment. “Original – as in …”
…and then Kylie bursts out laughing.
Belongum – Out!
