The clouds were just moving in late yesterday when I snapped this photo. I woke up to rain this morning and a bit of a panicky feeling as my thoughts quickly zeroed in on the work still needing to be done before Thanksgiving. I'm beginning to think that going out to eat this Thanksgiving sounds good.
There is so much clutter from moving stuff out of the big closet in the bathroom in order to get to the plumbing for the tub and putting ceramic tile on the floor. The clutter of tools scattered around, the clutter of boxes such as the new sink faucet and the huge box which houses the new toilet. You get the picture. But not an actual one. Ha!
After being home from work all week with a nasty cold/virus, BG was feeling well enough to help me get the bathroom painted over the weekend. He got on the ladder and painted near the ceiling and I rolled on the rest. And, yes, I did find the paint I was looking for!
The vanity is now sitting below that light fixture, but not yet completely put in place. I stood on a chair holding that fixture while BG did the wiring. He finished just in the nick of time as my arm began cramping. Not to mention his hand was getting a cramp, too.
I think I may have said a time or two, that when we get finished with this bathroom and a couple more rooms get painted and the basement redone, and The Project is painted, that I'm swearing off DIY projects for good!
Meanwhile, back at The Project our daughter was painting and J, her boyfriend, was changing a ceiling light and taking out shelves in a closet for her.
As in all painting projects that I've had a hand in, after the first coat dries you always find a few places that need a touch up or maybe even a second coat. I had to do that for the bathroom and her spare bedroom will need the same.
At first I didn't like the color she chose, it looked so different when wet, but after it dried a bit it looked much better. She chose a shade of brown which looked pretty and chocolatey on the sample.
How about a mirror like these that are at the Dixie Stampede in Branson for our bathroom? I actually have 2 of the horse collars from long ago. My dad gave me one and when he moved I inherited his. They've been in storage ever since because they are not quite my thing! But hey, I could put a mirror in one and hang it over the vanity. What do you think? No? Me, neither.
Before I close I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the horrific happenings in France. Also my prayers are with all who are fighting against those who are doing the devil's work all around the world. I think that the devil must be working overtime because he knows his time is growing short. May the Lord bless us and keep us safe.
