I am very talented at turning a job that should only take a few hours into a job that will take more than a few days. Our nursery is the perfect example of this.
I could have just painted the walls pink and called it a day, but when my aunt asked what I wanted, I reached for the stars. I wanted different colors. With a fancy chair rail.
And stencils. Lots of stencils.
My poor grandpa was hired into this job without knowing it and now is a stencil expert. I bet that was a skill he didn't want to develop. He kept on saying something about wishing he had a boss so he could get fired.
So, despite my family's best efforts, the nursery still isn't complete. But it is looking so good. I might hang out in there every night until Margaret is born.
Not only did my Aunt Charmen stencil her heart out yesterday, she also made an amazing gumbo dinner.
Coming home to a house full of people and dinner in the crockpot was perfection.
My only other picture yesterday was my happy face breakfast - like Julie's.
Every day should start with a happy face.
Question for the day
Are you a "solid color" painter, or do you like to do other stuff like designs and stencils?
If it were up to me, that room would be one solid color with accidental smears on the ceiling and drippings on the carpet.
