After becoming a parent, those little luxuries of life like getting to stay in bed when you're sick or painting a room in a reasonable amount of time, disappear quicker than foggy breath on a window pane.
I've been working busily during nap times and after S has gone to bed. As of late last night, I'm about half way done. I rolled the rest of the big wall behind the couch
and still need to do the cleaning and painting of the trim on the other two walls, one of which is a bitch to paint due to all the weird moldings, courtesy of the previous owners. And then the stair rails!! Ugh. Not looking forward to those. As for the Mister, he's not a fan of painting. I left him out of this project, since he's always the one doing all the house stuff anyway (though of course I say "we" when we fix up stuff, like "we're working on our garage" when in all honesty I just go in and offer encouragement, not hammering).
But how great do the steps look now?
BeforeI just love sitting on the couch, exhausted from filling cracks in the crown molding with silicon caulk, and staring at how great these look. Ah, the wonders of fresh paint.
My goal is to finish this by the end of the month. We're having new windows installed in October, so I'd like the entire living room to be done before it gets too cold.
Any projects going on in your house?
