Sitting In A Corner With A Razor Blade 

Was talking to my little sister on the phone yesterday and she asked what I was doing. I told her I was sitting in the corner of the bedroom with a razor blade. She thought I had lost my mind!
No, I have not gone suicidal; I was actually scraping paint off of a baseboard. And no, it wasn’t me who got the paint on the baseboard; this paint is ancient and beige.

I have completed the bedroom and the new bedroom furniture will be delivered on Friday. I painted the room blue and the furniture is a lighter wood. It should go very well together.

I started working on the dressing room today. It’s all primed and ready for paint tomorrow. It will take a week to get it done because the wall color has to dry enough to be able to tape it off so that I can paint the window frames, baseboards, and wardrobe. This room will be red with white trim.

I don’t think I ever told you that we have officially moved in. This past Wednesday the movers came and loaded up. We decided to go with movers instead of doing it ourselves because we had so much heavy stuff that went on upper floors. My books alone would have taken us days to get to the 3rd floor!

The new living room furniture will be delivered on Tuesday. It’s very “retro-ish.” Kind of a 50’s-60’s hip and modern style. Low backed with no arms. Very coooooool.

My new stove and dishwasher will be here Friday. Yes, I am spoiled rotten!

The floors are all sanded and ready for stain. We just have a few more stairs to strip and then we will be staining fools.

Ap0k has been working his butt off around here. He’s run electrical and cable wires, he’s helped me paint, he’s toted boxes to wherever I tell him to, he’s made countless trips to Home Depot, etc etc. He’s also spent a mint on buying me new stuff. I hope he knows how much I appreciate everything he’s done.

I still have to touch up the ceilings in the dining room and entry room, I still have to paint the stairway walls, I still need to paint the bathroom and computer room. Eventually I will make it to the 3rd floor.

WOW! This has been a lot more work than I thought it was going to be!!!!!
But I would recommend it to anyone. The sense of satisfaction over knowing you’ve done it yourself is amazing. It’s easy to pay someone to do it, but to be able to step back and say “I did that” is something you have to experience at least once in your life.
