  • Dining Room Painting And Planning

    I feel like kind of a jerk talking about our dining room makeover and the plans for that makeover (which is tonight’s long overdue blog post topic).  For our friends and family who have been to our house recently, like at Sunday’s Super Bowl fete, you know where we stand in this makeover process and […]

  • Dining Room Makeover

    It’s been a little while since I’ve written.  I wish I could say it’s because I’ve been busy crafting the next great American novel, or hanging out in Kathmandu waiting to lead an Everest expedition, or en route to Hawaii for an Ironman competition.  No…none of those things are happening.  Shocking, I know.  No…I’ve gotten […]

    After the last couple weeks of oh-my-goodness-all-I-have-done-for-my-one-room-challenge-project-is-paint woes, I finally feel like I’m making a little bit of progress.  Last week we finished painting…two coats on two windows, seven doors, entry walls, staircase walls, landing walls, hallway walls, and all the trim and ceilings in those spaces.  If I don’t lift a paint brush over […]

  • Trim Painting For Days: A Painted Entry and Landing

    My arms hurt, I can’t lift anything above my head, or even just lift my arms above my head, and I’m oh so grateful for my office job.  No, I haven’t been working on my Cross Fit skills (ha!).  I’ve been trim (and wall and ceiling and window and door) painting for days now.  But […]
