I'm back this week...

Pin It After a long and restful break, I am full of energy and plans for 2012 at my house.  Did you miss me?  Come on and lie to me :)
First up will be - Finish the upstairs hallway!!!  (I used three of these -!!!- because I have let it sit half painted this entire time...almost three whole months)  GASP!  What?  Yep.  Three whole months.  Have you ever let a project sit half finished for three whole months? 

Actually, it is really easy.  You just stop halfway through and put all your supplies on the floor in the corner (neatly).  Every once in a while, you stop in front of the pile and briefly think about it, but quickly get distracted by something else...anything else.  Then there are the blinders you can put on your eyes to walk through the project zone (it helps to not turn on any lights). 

Here is where I left you back in November...

Remember?  I was trying to decide if I should try to add dark paint to the doors and rails to make it more like this...

Fear not my loyal DYI friends, I'm back.  I have my supply list for the hardware store and a fridge full of caffeine drinks at the ready.  I plan to rip out the old trim around the doors and add the chunkier, basic boards and finish the painting this weekend.

I think I suffer from some kind of seasonal "Blah" disorder.  I can build stuff in my garage when the temps are over 100 degrees, but throw some cold weather and snow into the picture and all I want to do is curl up on the couch.  Mind you, I've caught up on all the TV and movies I didn't have time to watch over the summer...but I miss my power tools.  I walked by my miter saw last night in the garage and almost burst into tears thinking how much I missed him.  I wonder if he gets bored out there without anything to do.

Hahahahaha!  Anyway -

I also have to build a new computer/video game work center for my two boys who share a room.  I hope to start planning and drawing up the plans tonight, but the build won't be until next weekend (unless it is 2 degrees outside - I'm not a superhero and my garage isn't heated).  Then comes the pantry build. 

I think just posting this on the blog makes me happy and motivated to get to work. 

Please stay tuned.

Much love,


  1. Yes, you were missed. Seasonal "bah" disorder could be a sunlight deficiency. You could also have just needed rest and recharging. You do seem to run on "high speed" most of he time.

  2. Thank you Susan. I can't wait to create so many new things to share. :)

  3. so how is it coming along?
