It’s the Little Things
The major bulk of the painting is done – just a couple more rooms to go!!!
At least the main rooms are mostly finished. Just some touch ups, trim painting + what not. Now I’m not feeling as overwhelmed about it as I was a week ago! Thanks to Handy Man Jeff.
In addition to the painting, Jeff’s been attending to all the other details that really clean up a home. Like, taking off the doors for a MAJOR once over!!! A fresh coat of semi-gloss paint over all the dirty, smudgy ick!
IT’S BECAUSE IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! Like a completely new door + fixtures!!!! Yes, obviously I have lost the plot somewhere along the way. This is what DIY home decor will do to a person. It’ll make you post pictures of white doors.
By the way, the lighting fixture is from Home Depot for $15. Previously there was just a bare light bulb hanging in the hallway. Very crack den chic.
He would paint well into the wee hours of the morning, sometimes until 4am!!! I really don’t know where he gets his seriously never ending energy. Like the Never Ending Story – but in human form. Yo, I’d be under the comforters by 10pm, stat!!! Lady needs her shut eye + Jeff knows it!
We added the Home Depot globe pendant lamps in there as well, because the previous fixtures made me want to break out in hives.
Every once in a while Jeff + I would have to make a break for it + have field trips around the house. Here’s Jeff investigating the scary bowels of the house. From my perspective I was cracking up at Jeff squatted flat to the ground! Haahaa!!! He looked like a turtle!
Hey now, you mean you NEVER have a chuckle at your husband’s expense? Oh, well I don’t believe a word of it!
This time it was the scary attic. I ain’t going up in there!
Painting the kitchen is rough cuz your body sorta needs food. And tarps over stoves + sinks makes you kinda want to eat triscuits all night. We did have a pizza + wine painting party one night + it was super fun.
I totally spazz out. Like Superman does around Kryptonite.
Well!!! Little by little, folks!!! And I can’t say that it hasn’t been fun! Yes, at times I’d like to throw a brush at Jeff + not miss, but the majority of this week has felt really fulfilling!!! I can’t wait to keep going!!!
