Fact: Not being married negatively affects the state of my house.
This is a follow-up/weekly post where YOU my blog audience “come home” with me to see if having you here helps me get home improvement projects done. For previous post go here.
Premise (same as last week – if read previously – skip down to Projects.)
I find being unattached affects the status of my home improvement projects in two ways.
1. The fact that there is someone coming home kind of gives me a kick in the pants to get stuff done. Clean up, pick up, make improvements.
2. I am so much more motivated to do home improvements when someone else is doing it with me.
For the first time in my 13 1/2 year old’s life she is getting her very. own. bedroom. This is pretty exciting. I didn’t get to do the work on my bedroom this week (family in from AZ) or scrub the bathroom floor (dang it – I was looking forward to that…) – workmen still working in bathroom.
BUT I did get my girl’s room primed. It was work too. There was a lot of scrubbing and cleaning and wiping that went on even before the paint.
Taken during a break. Getting my prime on.
And this is where you learn how cheap I am:
I’ve gone through 4 semi-used cans of primer that I’ve found in my house. They usually are separated and look pretty gross but I just mix them up and voila! Here is my technique:
Rusty & Dusty? No problem! Just wrap lip in tin foil. 😉
I also got gardening done this week – my squash is sprouting!
Projects for this week:
Finish paint in both bedrooms.
