I find that it’s very easy with a blog to show nice pictures of nice things. Who wants to see how bad it can get right? We all want the pretty, the daydream of how things will stay. My friends things are out of control at my cottage and I’m not afraid to say it. I look around and it really seems like every single thing is half done. And when I say half done, I mean the easy half. It’s easy to put up the first cupboard door, but harder to get the second one to match (trust me, Bj and I worked on this exact issue for an hour yesterday, damn spring hinges). It’s easy to pay someone to come do something, but it’s hard to get them to come back and fix a mistake. This is why right now I can’t use my bathroom sink. So let’s check in on the progress…
The garage is half tidied up, and I hate that the weird piece of MDF is half painted pink. I got rid of half the cans of old paint left here, but half are still half full so now I have to find a special disposal place.
And the basement, oh my god is it giving me grief. I mean all I want to do is make you pretty basement, work with me here!!! We went to rent a sander last night to get the old paint off. It didn’t work, it wasn’t the right thing. So the floor is still half done, and it needs to be all the way done before they come jack hammer up the edges next week. We tried this eco stripper, and it only halfway worked, which won’t cut it. The lights are halfway hung, and the whole basement is only halfway painted.
But did I mention I found the bolts? I think I better get back to work and finish some of these projects. Too bad I only have half the strength of a normal human in my upper body, and I think maybe half a brain right now too. The other half? it’s going crazy! Oh and I can only work half time on this, because I’m working full time on Ribbon Jar.
