Hey all! Are you ready for one of the most mundane blog posts of 2016?!
Let’s get this party started.
It’s week 2 of Linda from Calling it Home’s One Room Challenge. It provides bloggers an opportunity to spend 6 weeks on a room of their choosing, and link up once a week with progress.
Which is why this is so embarrassing…..
Since my last post, I have hardly done anything.
After removing the drywall, I removed all the screws and washed the walls with TSP.
By the way, not very fun or satisfying. It still left horrific pink walls behind.
So I went and drank beer instead and binge watched Love on Netflix.
This weekend will be spent putting all 3-4 layers on all the cracks and holes. If I’m feeling extra ambitious, I’ll try to sand the walls smooth.
I’m dreading that though, for sure. I don’t know what it is, but sanding the walls is what brings me to my emotional and physical brink and usually brings the tears. Could be spending hours holding a heavy, vibrating sander over my head after spending days wielding a trowel. But. Idk. I don’t have a whole lot of personal insight.
I feel like once I get into the painting zone, it will be smooth from there.
The day after I posted, I went to purchase and the store is on vacation (to work on back orders.) This prompted not one, but two, crazy emails begging to let me purchase the light. I have not gotten any response, which, miffs me a little. I would almost prefer a: GO AWAY CRAZY LADY
Do they not understand the complete mental overtaking that is the ORC?!
This is an issue because.
- I like the light fixture
- I showed the kid several possibilities and that’s the one she chose
Now I have to decide if I want to find a permanent alternative, or a stand in until the shop is available. And I’m all: no mo’ decisions.
And self flagellation for putting off the purchasing of said light fixture.
Obvs, I haven’t had any personal growth from this because I’m going to put off making a decision. Naturally.
I sure hope to have a lot more to share next week. Until then, check out all the rooms – that are likely more impressive than mine!
