Disappointed with the lack of regular blog posts, I asked Rob to step up his game a bit. I created a schedule highlighting the times when Rob could be updating the blog and showed it to him. I’m kidding, of course. I thought it was only fair to write some of the posts, myself, seeing as how Rob has put so much energy into things he normally wouldn’t care about. Things like straight paint lines and screwless switch covers.
Fortunately, I have some pretty exciting things to post about. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and with that, the stress of completing some projects I had commited to. First was the all important Thanksgiving Day Tablescape. With the help of some lovely ladies out in cyber-space, I came up with the idea of painting a collection of gourds and pumpkins and using them for place settings and centerpieces. My goal was to spend as little as possible considering our new house payment. I think it came out well.
Of course, we still have the on-going project of exterior painting, and while it has progressed since the last post, I won’t bore you with the pictures. We’ll leave those for the BIG reveal.
We also reached our goal of “finished for now” on our guest bathroom project. With the help of my brother- Roman, friend- Heather and several other friends from church (who appeared here), we were able to tear down the old wall paper, texture, and paint our Sunday’s Best bathroom. We used an orange peel spray texture and painted the walls Sherwin Williams Worldly Gray in satin. We also applied a privacy film to the window. I like it so much that it changed my paint plans for the rest of the house.
The cats seem to like it, too.
