Why is it that projects take longer than you think?
I am always thinking, I can do that in a weekend, but reality proves that these home project DO TAKE TIME.
I spent all day yesterday finishing up the beadboard and trim. After dinner, I dashed to Lowe's for paint and even more trim. I wanted to beef up the chair rail.
After taking time to relax this morning, I finished up the chair rail this afternoon and caulked, caulked and well, caulked some more.
I always end up using a whole role of paper towels when I caulk. I find that wetting them and using my finger to smooth out the caulk always leave a perfect line...too bad I waste so many paper towels.
A sweep, a vacuum and a big sigh of relief. Then I saw this. Sigh.
I didn't like the beadboard on this wall. 3/4 way up made the wall heater look like it was silly. So lots of spackle went on this wall tonight. I suspect its going to take a couple of thin coats.
I don't really like the heater there at all, but that's where it has to go. Making do for now.
While the spackle was drying, I decided to paint just two walls. I was scared when it first rolled on, it looked way tooooooo green. The first coat dried and it looks like a good mix of blue/green and grey. I called it a night and decided to wait and see.
I am now eating a yummy bowl of vanilla bean ice cream...because I deserve it. :)
