Topsy Turvy

Just a quick one to say I'm still here - super tired but here. The entire house is a certified disaster area and we're less than halfway through the painting part of this project. Can you believe it has taken me two days so far just to paint the doors and doorframes in the hallway? And I'm not done yet! Talk about fussy work. Oy.

What amazes me is that the original project keeps expanding. We started out to paint the living/dining room, which is actually one big room covering almost half of the main floor. Of course we can't stop there because the paint extends into the central hall and also up the stairs to the second floor landing. We already knew the dining room area rug needed replacing which quickly included replacing the carpet pads in both rooms. And then the front entry hall rug and pad too. We still have to go rug hunting! As well as finish the painting. And clean up the mess. And sort the junk. That last is not going to be a trivial job. However it's much better that we do this than our heirs, if you know what I mean.

Meanwhile I'm not showing any photos yet! Off to my weavers and spinners guild meeting this evening. Hope I can stay awake!

You poor thing, you!!! Sometimes, it's better to leave it to the heirs because tastes will change - wallpaper is coming back & what was wrong with pink tubs & toilets anyway??? You have my sympathies. But, I know it will be beautiful & worth all the work in the end.

Thanks for your sympathy, sweetie! The project is coming along slowly. Only the living room left to paint and then - the cleanup. Big job. Hah, pink bathrooms! Our bathroom fixtures are pale gold. You should have seen the adventures we had getting a new sink to match last time! Not almond, not yellow and definitely NOT white. We were in luck and actually found one. The last one ever...
