Well, this is a way bigger project than I expected

August 9, 2008

You know how getting started is usually the hardest part of a project?  HA!  I laugh at the thought!

Once I took all the stuff out of my closet (boxes unmoved for four and a half years I found! eek!!) I proceeded to take down the shelf and rod.  The wood splintered and there were huge gaps in the sheet rock.


I couldn’t find my putty knife, but, FYI, a rubber spatula works better IMHO, especially when you’re filling in craters. 😛

Just getting the primer on made a huge difference.  You can see they never did paint the whole thing originally.

Surprisingly, it’s all painted now.  Not wanting to invest another dime in this fiasco I opted to use a quart of sample paint I had already.  I like it here – it’s nice and bright – but can you imagine this could have been my hall color??  I dodged a bullet on that one! 😛

Gee, now tomorrow I actually get to start this project!  Woo hoo for me.

I’m off to couch now – since bed is clearly not an option.




  1. I must say I am impressed! … Can’t wait to see this as it comes together..

  2. I see that you have met the challenge!! Good job! No, you are not a b***h!!
