There comes a time during any 'Home Transformation' that you become "Overwhelmed"
Today I'm sitting, or rather moving from one chair to another, totally "not knowing what
to do next"? A 'one woman band', I am!
Since I first started the 're-do' of my townhouse, that was the summer of 09, my first
intentions were to simply "Make my kitchen look better'! I mean, "look at this kitchen"!
That scary thing in the ceiling is a 'Florescent Light' 6 bulbs up there?.. With dirty yellowing plastic panels surrounding it! It had about 25 years of bugs in there!
One day I'd had enough, took out the sledge hammer and started with the ceiling!
Within 2 hrs "It was gone"!
Every time I stepped into the kitchen I felt like I was "Back in Time"!
It was someones time, surly "Not Mine'!
Well, one thing led to another and my townhouse took on a life of it's own! I got out the "White Paint" and the paint brush went off an a tangent! It just started going 'splish splash' from one room to another... and I started liking what was going on! I moved out of the kitchen, into the other rooms of the house. Poor kitchen is still there, begging to be finished. I keep talking to it... soon, when I get the money for the new counter top I'll be back... promise!
Ok... I think now I'm totally "OVERWHELMED"! Time to hang up the 'Paint Brush' for a few days and 'Re-group'....I made a "White Pair of Drapes" for the family room this morning.. love it, but the rod needs to be larger/longer... to the Home Depot for a 105" wood dowel to make my own!
Look at all the photos.. "Who Does This"?
And, "I have more photos, of more furniture I painted
in the past 6 months!
It is Saturday evening and I've decided to take off tomorrow, Sunday. Not one thing will I do except read the newspaper and watch the Hallmark Chanel ,, or maybe watch the design shows on HGTV, check my e'mails and peek into a few of my bloggie friends sites... maybe get a little energy for Monday!
Knowing me, I'll be dreaming of the 'stair case'... yes, I want to remove the carpet and paint the wood steps.. and the living room, remove the carpet and paint the cement sub floor...
StOp!!! No more for the weekend.. I'm sure everyone knows, "When you start dreaming of this stuff, it's time to hang up the paint brush"! OK! "Sandy Out"
