Shane is unbelievably supportive. He doesn’t bat an eye when he comes home from work and has to step over debris from my latest (sometimes spur of the moment) project. But there are times when I wish he were less supportive. Like when I say “I think I need to repaint, renovate and redecorate the entire upstairs AT THE SAME TIME.” That should have been a time when someone told me I was crazy dumb. Someone should have dangled chocolate in front of my face to distract me and then hid all my tools.
Someone should have stopped me me because now my house looks like this.
I had to empty out my office closet so my electrician friend could help me do some work in the attic. I haven’t put it back in the closet because I need to repaint the closet along with the whole office. This is the only room I haven’t started yet.
The good news is that the front room is all painted and the new shelves are up. I just haven’t had time to decorate it yet. And I need to sell this chair since we got a new ( thrifted) one.
The room I am currently working on is the kitchen. The fridge and stove are in the dining room. And a plastic sheet separate the spaces since I have retextured and sanded to ceiling and walls.
Are you jealous yet?
Oh and the dishwasher is still broken because I really don’t want to call someone and invite them over right now.
The bathroom has been put on the back burner until I can get the kitchen functioning again.
So that is where I have been. Sitting in a mess of my own making and pondering my sanity and feeling like I have DIY ADD with jumping around from project to project in the different rooms. But the good news is that eventually I will have LOADS of posts with all sorts of makeovers and reveals. So, there is that.
I do have one project I can share with you though that is DONE. I posted over at the HomeRight blog about my fireplace makeover! I LOVE it :) Hop on over and see how I changed it from traditional to more rustic.
Here’s a peek….
Have you ever gotten in over your head before on a project?
