I found out that if I stay off the computer I can get quite a bit of work done around this joint. Yesterday I was putting corner stuff on the drywall and mudding it. Yeah I am back to the real work in the house 😦 and on my birthday at that 😦 Can you tell that I am not really happy about it? I said I wanted to get to the painting but now that I am at that point, I am dreading that as well. I just want to do the creative stuff now….
This morning I got up and I was a sanding fool. I sanded till there was no tomorrow. Then I painted the ceiling and the trim white. I was going to paint the foyer a pink color but I was going to have to put primer on the wall and then paint and I did not feel like all of that drama so I painted the whole room bright white. And I didn’t even have to stress over picking out the white…its the shelf bright white that I got for the trim. That is the first time in my whole life I ever painted a wall white, except when I was moving out of an apartment and painting the place back to how I found it. I actually like it. It looks so bright and fresh! VERY BRIGHT LOL
I painted the back door and the bathroom door green…
This is also the first time I EVER painted my inside doors anything besides white or off white. LOL
I started getting in the habit of going to the Goodwill when I get off work. They have something new everyday and I been getting some great bargains. Yesterday I got a mirror. Now I know there is a leaf piece missing at the bottom but I really like it AND it was only $4.99. You can’t beat that with a yardstick!
This is above my table….the table that is not there yet. The great gate leg table that I purchased at the Goodwill and I been fussing and cussing about spending $20 on it. Even though I know that it was a good deal I just can’t fathom paying more than $10 for ANYTHING at the Goodwill. LOL that’s cheap huh? LOL…Well why do you think I go there? I like to buy household items there. No clothes, can’t stand wading through all that stuff. That makes me absolutely SICK!
I put the washer and dryer back in place and I swear that crap is heavy… even to slide. I felt like I broke my wrist for a minute there…
No more photos till the reveal but know that progress has been made for sure!!
I was soaking pennies to start on my floor but bump that. I am taking the pennies I have to the bank and trading them for brand spanking new shiny pennies. That’s what I said I was going to do in the first place but I kept forgetting.
Also… as I am cleaning up I am noticing a lot of my tools missing. I hope they are in the barn and not walked off with my worker….
