Where, oh where has LG been?

Posted on

I'm right here.

I've been a little busy, meaning that my days of late have held some small purpose for me. This week, I painted our bedroom. Unless you've undertaken such a feat, you may not fully understand and appreciate the enormity of the project, especially when you are a tad OCD… so I'll elaborate….

DAY 1

– Removed everything except 2 dressers, the bed and the bedside table, including eveything from the closet, and light fixtures

– Vacuumed and swiffer dusted the ceiling

– Painted the ceiling

DAY 2

– Vacuumed and swiffer dusted the walls and baseboards, putty-ed cracks and marks in the wall

– Taped the carpet, and all the shelving in the closet, the window, and doors. I tried to tape the French Doors, and gave up after one of 60 window panels

– Painted the trim, and French Doors

– Removed the tape 

Day 3

– Sanded the putty-ed areas, then had to re-vacuum and swiffer dust said areas. Opps, will remember that one…

– Taped the ceiling and the baseboards, (not easy in case you don't know….)

– Painted the walls including the entire closet 2 coats.

– Removed tape, (with Billy's help)

Later Day 3

– Scraped the paint off the window panels from the French Doors. It takes 1 hour to do one door…

– Moved back furniture, (with Billy's help)

– Hung pictures, and moved most items back into the bedroom

Day 4

– Moved the clothes back into the closet

– Organized mine and Billy's clothes according to most frequently worn.

– Went to Hardware store to purchase more painter's tape and supplies for the next painting adventure, and additional shelving for the closet

– Put together a shelving unit for out shoes, (okay 8 are mine, 1 pair is Billy's…)

– Put together a 7 foot high tower for hats

Day 5

– Billy cuts out the bottam bit of the tower so it can be flush against the wall

- I a) attach the thing to the wall in 4 places, b) attach a rod c) admire my handiwork, d) consider a possible future in closet organization (this by the way used, 2 screw drivers, a drill, a hammer, a little saw thing, the name escapes me right now, and a measuring tape.

– I declare to myself that I have skills.

– Use ceiling paint and trim paint to correct the few mistakes I made, (I'm good, Billy says that I'm too hard on myself, I bite my tongue re: OCD)

I have done more this week as well, and I'll elaborate, for your reading pleasure, later… (that was sarcasm btw)

    My goodness you have been busy! We are so lucky that we do not have trim or floors or furniture to deal with yet. Hope it turned out really well!
