Painting - but not having fun, yet.

The lounge room "quick paint job" has turned into what will be a five full day marathon of scraping, sealing, replacing, painting and cleaning. Needless to say I am falling into bed each night without creating a thing. I have taken some before shots and will take some after's so hopefully you will see an improvement.

I am taking a little time to drop by a few blogs -usually while eating, so have been very slack about commenting. I really am missing my daily interactions - but hope to be back on deck next week. Meanwhile stay safe and know that I am thinking of you all.

I can relate to the painting taking forever to do. And also to the problem of getting around to all the blogs. I'm having that problem myself. I need about 24 extra hours each day!

Isn't that always the start out thinking you can just roll the walls and voila - done. I've had this happen more than once, what I figured to be an afternoons job became a week. The good thing is that when you're all done it's something to be proud of. I will be looking forward to seeing before and after photos.

Hi Julie, I'll look forward to seeing before and after photos too! Have fun and try not to get paint in your hair - that wall paint is horrible to get out.

Thank you-thank you for the gorgeous ATC you sent me! I received it yesterday, on my actual birthday! So it was an extra special surprise.
