Sunday it looked like this again:
A little ice, sleet, snow – why break the routine, right?
Pig-farmer looked out the dining room window and asked,
“Are our Christmas lights still up?”
Did you hear my sigh?
I bet you thought it was just the wind groaning?
I have a
better bigger project. I am working on the upstairs of our house – the boys’ zone.
Does everyone have a “junk room” in their house? An uninhabitable room where all household members pile and store those items they don’t want to throw away, put away or use very often. If you don’t … don’t judge me. Our’s is called the John Deere room. The previous owners painted it with a John Deere motif for their son, complete with fluorescent yellow ceiling and glow-in-the-dark tractors.
The room needs to grow up and become more functional.
Pause here and take note of that yellow closet in the corner.
I moved boxes and boxes, tubs and crates. I was ready to wash the walls down and get priming.
I kept thinking, That closet is in the way. It is where the bed needs to go.
The closet is not “part” of the room …. it was added into the room. Just a wood frame and some drywall (and fluorescent paint).
I decided a crow bar was all it needed. :}
Well, it needed more than a crow bar. I had to use a myriad of tools, but I demolished that thing! It was sort of invigorating. Except cleaning up the mess. Up and down the steps a gazillion times.
Now, I’ve decided the carpet needs to go, too. I should pull that up before I wash the walls, before I prime and paint.
Before pig-farmer gets home from his business trip and asks what I’m doing.
