It's Still Very Much A WIP...

Thank you to everyone to took the time to reassure me that we're not the worst home-owners ever - although, I still suspect that we should be in the running!

So, believing that the homeowners do all the work on those shows is like believing in wrestling. Good to know.
This explains why I didn't catch on - I was in college before I knew that wrestling was, ummm, "scripted".
And I didn't figure it out on my own, someone had to tell me.
I can be quite slow to catch on to things... I like to think that that is one of my more endearing traits...

Still hard at work on the bathroom painting project. I will post some pictures when it's done. Which is totally embarrassing. You know how you get to where you see something so often, you don't really see it anymore? Yeah. That's where we were with all the things that were wrong with the bathroom.
Also, have I mentioned before that this interest in the house is very, very, very new? Up until very recently, as long as it was reasonably clean, and we could shovel a path from room-to-room, I didn't much care what it looked like. Which you will see for yourselves soon enough.

Just to give you a taste of the loveliness - there's a picture of where the shower enclosure is attached to the wall. Nice, hmmm?

Back to painting. I'm working on the wainscoting now.
Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun....

Yes, it's a huge pain. But think how good you'll feel when it's all done and looks great!

(If it's any consolation, there's always a point I reach when I do home stuff that I think, 'WHAT was I THINKING to get involved in this????' And then eventually it's over and I'm really glad I did it.)

Hang in there!

WHAT???? Professional wrestling isn’t real??? Say it isn’t so!!!!

Sorry I couldn’t resist! Hang in there girl & you’ll get through it. I know what you mean about having blinders on. I weeded my front flower/herb bed over the weekend & it is unbelievable how different it looks out there now. I got so used to it looking like a jungle I didn’t notice it anymore.

Wainscoating, as in beadboard?

Now I'm really jealous.

I so feel your pain. I'm such an instant gratificaiton kinda person. Long drawn out projects drive me nuts.
