I admit it. I have an addiction. It is not one that is widely studied, nor one that I am sure there is a treatment for. In fact, I think I may be the first to give it a name…..
I AM A PAINTAHOLIC
There, I said it.
I might have a teeny problem. I wake up first thing in the morning and think about what I can paint that day. When I “try” to go sleep at night, I think about what I am painting the next day, or what I want to paint in my home. Sometimes, like last week, I have painted so much and I am so tired, but I have to keep going. My stuff kept selling out of my space, I kid you not, it was bizarre. I had to keep painting til I couldn’t paint anymore. And after the sale at Paris Flea Market started, I thought I would have a break from painting for a few days. But, I was doing a painting demo using CeCe Caldwell’s Paint and Waxes. The second I had the paintbrush in my hand, I turned into one of those annoying “barkers” that try to reel you in to whatever it is they want to sell you.
But come they did. And paint I did!
Do you see another little ladder in the background? It is coming next week!
It was supposed to only go for two hours, but I couldn’t stop and went for hour three. At the end of the demo, I felt totally “High” again! Trust me, it is not fun coming off a paint high, and this was the highest I have ever been. Which is saying something, because there is nothing in the CeCe Caldwell’s paint products to give you any high! It is 100% natural.
This giddy, “I am having way too much fun” smile is for real. I could have done this all day.
As long as I am talking about being a paintaholic, I thought I would show you what resulted in a burst of painting Wednesday night. Seriously, I think I was using all four limbs towards the end.
In one evening, I painted this French Grey Dresser, this Memo Board frame, this chalkboard frame, the little green basket, and this former bunk bed ladder. All, one coat only! I also was in a HUGE hurry to take this picture. Sorry for the blur.
If anyone out there can offer me some advice, or you yourself are a Paintaholic. I would love to hear from you, and how you manage this addiction.
