Headboard Hesitation


I’ve been contemplating making someone a headboard for some time. Because it’s not for me, I second guess myself a lot.  A LOT.  But we all do that when we do just about anything for someone else.  (P.S., Spidey’s web is made from a sparkly fishnet stocking!)

I used to paint murals in show homes, lottery homes and businesses. I never really worried too much about the Designers or Builders, because ultimately I knew it wasn’t their actual home that they spent actual time in.



I really only worried when it was someone’s home. I don’t know why I wasted so much time doing that either, 99.9% of the time it went really well, and there were shiny happy people abounding. Okay I exaggerate. But lets just say McDonald’s didn’t beat my ratio of satisfied customers.

I guess what I’m trying to say in my usual round-about fashion is GO FORTH!  If you don’t try things and waste your time worrying about what people will think, you won’t know, grow or experience. Regardless of the outcome, you won’t be the same person going in.  At the very least you’ll learn what you don’t like or don’t do well.  But whatever!  And see? I don’t even care if you like this post or not…..much.
