Is your week flying by too? Geesh!
It's been a crazy week...broken T.V., broken phones, found a lump of peanut butter in the toaster...the list goes on. The good news is that I think I'm about 1/4 of the way done with painting the wallpaper in our bedroom!
Don't be discouraged that it has taken me so long. It really hasn't. I just don't work on it that often. Remember in the first post I said that this is one of those projects that you should only work on when you feel like it. Otherwise, you will hate it, and give up.
You see, I only work on it really late at night while everyone is sleeping. It's quite nice actually. I plan this nice quiet time to myself early in the day. I make sure to nap with my daughter during the day and then I have my espresso really late in the evening. I can stay up till 2am no problem!
Imagine some nice quiet time to yourself with your ipod while you paint away...it's really nice!!! You could also listen to a book on tape if you wanted.
Keep in mind if you're working on your own bedroom, your husband or significant other, has to be ok with sleeping with the lights on or having a pillow over his or her face ;) My super husband sleeps with a pillow over his face...isn't he sweet?! I even make noise and wake him up sometimes and he doesn't get mad. He just sits up, says something crazy, and goes back to sleep. It's part of my entertainment for the evening.
Anyway, Here is the one finished wall:
I have started on the other walls too, but they aren't even close to being finished.
The finished wall won't be empty for long...this present from my friend Adam is coming to fill the space...
Look at it's cracked white paint wonderfulness!
It needs some love, but Adam has reassured me that the wood is good underneath all the cracked paint.
I know what you're thinking..."What in the world are you going to do with ANOTHER old door Kelle?!!?"
My plan is to put beveled mirrors in the panels. I have been searching for the right door for awhile now and just couldn't find it. Then Adam decided to tear down his garage and thought of me and my unhealthy obsession with old doors before he tossed this one out. See, it's good when other people know about all of your "crazies"!
I knew the right door would find me eventually! Just in time right?
That's all I've got for today ;) Hope you are all having a great week!
Now I gotta figure out how to get the peanut butter out of the toaster!!!
