So, on Wednesday, we told him to run along and not come back until Monday (today). It was so nice to have a break from him being here all the time. So today (being Monday), after many hours of the water being turned off, he was able to install the new sink and satin nickel fixtures for that same sink. Jeez Loueeze. He also still needs to repaint the louvered closet doors because his spray painting technique basically sucked. However, in his defense, it's nearly impossible to spray paint outside here, as the wind is ALWAYS blowing. ALWAYS, I tell you! The closet doors have numerous spots where the spray paint didn't entirely cover, as well as places where it just flat peeled off after contact with the other louvered doors. Honestly, should this really be such a hard task to accomplish? SD's room is 15' by 15', which (I think) should take less than a week, much less a whole two weeks, shelving & closet doors or not. Gah. I have to keep reminding myself that he mends everything before painting. So. Worth. His Weight. In. Gold.
Also, by Wednesday Noon the bedding I'd ordered online still hadn't arrived so I ran out to Target and picked up a cheapie *Bed-In-A Bag* to suffice until the other bedding arrived. As soon as we got the bedding opened and put in place, the items I had ordered, arrived. It's just another one of Murphy's Laws, right?
Anyway, I'd also bought a new shower curtain to go with her previous shower curtain liner. In addition to all this, I painted all of the cabinet & door knobs black and the brass fixtures on the ceiling fan as well. Then I painted her wastebaskets black as well as a couple of Chinese decorative hats for the wall. I haven't actually hung anything on the walls as yet, but I will as soon as I give up the struggle with Christmas lights (ie: buying a new pre-lit tree), which is at last, wearing me down. Sometimes being stubborn is just plain stoooopid, right?
Soooo, I really hope that you can all cut me some slack for not blogging much these days and I'm
Things Left To Do In SD's Room:
refinish the ugly pink counter top in the bathroom
hang bedroom window rod and curtains
hang the decorative pieces I painted, on the walls
see to it that the walls of the bathroom, louvered closet doors and sliding doors are painted (with the appropriate colors)
make sure the rest of the hardware is hung in the bathroom
hang bathroom window curtain rod and curtain
paint glass and brass bedside lamp in mercury glass finish
buy another set of sheets for SD's room during the January White Sales
I'm sure there are more things for the list that I'm just not thinking of, but I feel like a flipping genius for remembering this meager amount of items. So not joking. I apologize if this is boring but this is my life these days and I'm actually having a grand time learning to decorate without hiring a pro. Perhaps yet another self reinvention? Well, of course!!!!
