Do you remember those commercials?
“Whatcha eatin?” “Nuttin honey.”
But clearly he IS eating something so the wife beans him in the head for his lies… Ha… classic.
That’s what we’ve gotten accomplished at the house. Nuttin. Unless you count painting one half of one room. We chose at random and started in the dining room. In retrospect, maybe not the best choice since it’s one of the first things you see when you walk in.
Front of house.
Right inside front door.
After some debate, we left the wainscoting white. We changed the color on the top mostly because she had just left so many holes and scuffs on the walls that we have to patch and therefore re-paint everything whether we really want to or not.
Here is my version of a before and after.
Wall on left: Before. Wall on right: After. Man with nice arms: Taken.
The man with nice arms is also actually going to be building different legs for the dining room table. You see the old ones in the picture above. They’re really pretty, but they have those squiggley pieces that prevent chairs from being pushed all the way in. And I bought new chairs – two banquettes, actually. One is sitting in a box in the dining room. The other is sitting in a box at the top of the stairs.
I still have my eye twitch. It has been literal weeks and it is making me mental. You guys DIY everything. What is a freaking remedy for this?? (Aside from cutting stress or caffeine. I don’t know how to have less of either.)
I like this song. (If you click on that, sorry about the buttcheeks.) Videos with bikers always make me titter a little bit because they look so tough, but my parents are bikers and you’ve never met a nicer, more clean cut set of Republicans.
What are you guys doing for Memorial Day? I’m cutting my hair off and then going to see Cheap Trick. Ohhhhh yes I am.
