Waffler wrap-up and recent poll results

Posted on

Remember how Janette from The2Seasons was waffling about whether or not to paint the armoire in her mudroom?

57% of readers thought Janette should paint it, while 43% encouraged her to keep it as is. And what did Janette decide to do? Here she with the answer:

Thanks to everyone who voted on my waffle. I am going to make the armoire the best of both worlds. I will leave the exterior unpainted, but I am going to add some additional shelves to the inside and paint it a soft gray with some hints of blue. It will keep its traditional look on the outside but have a pop of color to give a new and fresh look inside.

When Rayna’s husband purchased this chicken coop she was thrilled…about the fresh eggs, that is.  The chicken coop, not so much.

Rayna’s predicament prompted me to post a waffle asking voters to choose their favorite coop from a variety of different styles.  The clear winner was this cottage-y coop, which received 44% of the votes.

This modern, clean-lined coop (which even has a skylight) received 26%.

And Rayna’s favorite? This modern cube only received 12%. (It was my favorite, too, Rayna!)

This last waffle was inspired by another friend. Marie was giving a dinner party and wondered whether or not to ask people to take off their shoes after entering the house.

47% of readers find the shoes-off request to be totally acceptable, while 28% find it a bit annoying, and 15% have never been asked. If you didn’t get a chance to weigh in, what are your feelings about being asked to take off your shoes?

Have a great weekend!
