Last week I promised to share how I painted the rug on my front porch. And while I often break those promises and truthfully wonder why you ever trust me.
Last week I showed you my beautiful new shutters and how they have improved my lifestyle. I no longer have to wedge myself between my chair and the wall to open the curtains in my bedroom.
It was two weeks ago today that we started the new room. But we only worked on the room 7…
So many of you have been concerned about the pressure I am putting on myself to get the room finished.
I appreciate your concern.
I am going to give myself a break.
I listen to my advisors.
Details, details, details! I’m ready to be finished with the details!
The new room seems soooooo cloooose to being finished.
I didn’t work on it yesterday. I needed a break.
Today when I woke up I just KNEW that with a little elbow grease and some bribery for my 18 year old son I could get it finished.
But NOOOOO. There are so many teeny-tiny, miniscule, seems-like-they-don’t-matter-but-they-do type of things that I didn’t make it. I am STILL not finished.
Before you start to throw tomatoes at me and boo and hiss and declare me a failure, never to read my blog again….let me remind you:
I didn’t make my own personal deadline of finishing the new room in a week. It was just too much….
Another long day of working on the new room. It’s going to be great! I’m glad there’ll be a bed…
Whew! I spent the day working on the new room.
I textured the walls, painted trim, cut, painted the ceiling and door (Painting doors is my LEAST favorite painting job).
I didn’t want to deal with renting a texture gun, so I decided to design my own texture pattern. This can be dangerous. Sometimes these ideas work great and sometimes (most times) they don’t. I say this because I want to stress that I mess this stuff up all of the time. But it’s no big deal. Just scrape it off and do something else. Don’t be afraid to try!
But I think my texture job is turning out great. I’ll post more on that later.
So far so good….. I got math done, piano practice started, co-op class preparation underway and I was off to…
Last night I couldn’t move my arms. Tonight I can’t move anything…my arms,my legs, my hair… I’m not sure what…
