They say starting is half the battle. I totally agree. It’s been a while since I talked about my room update. Well, that’s because it’s been a while since I’ve actually done anything in this space. Shame on me!
I decided to give myself a deadline to get this room painted. Starting this past Monday, I gave myself ten days. I know that seems like a lot of time just to paint one little room, but this week and the next one are crazy busy. I assumed I would need as much time as I could have.
Thankfully, things are moving so much quicker than I expected. Every little hole is patched and sanded and all signs of the old wallpaper are gone. You can see my design plan here.
Between Monday and Tuesday evening, I also managed to get all the trim painted! Although I really don’t mind painting, I’m glad to be finished with it.
Are you loving my impromptu window treatment? With no blinds and neighbors nearby, it’s kind of important. I didn’t think they’d want to see my horrible dancing. Yes, music and sporadic dancing are an essential part of my painting process. In case you’re wondering, this is the song I’ve been dancing to these past few days.
Let me tell you, there is nothing better than a fresh coat of white trim paint. The space is already feeling crisper and cleaner. I love it!
Tonight and tomorrow I’m hoping to tackle the ceiling. This means finally removing the nondescript ceiling fan that hangs over the space.
I cannot wait until that baby is gone! If all goes well, the new light fixture should be hung by Friday. That will actually put me way ahead of schedule.
After that, I will just have to paint the walls which should be a piece of cake. So, fingers crossed, this time next week I will be able to show you my completely painted room. Yay!
Oh, and my kitty Sebastian wanted to say, Hi. His little ears managed to sneak into one of my pictures.
