Saturday,Yeah!

     Okay yesterday I binge watched Netflix and did nothing in the bedroom.  I did no laundry, I cleaned nothing, I sewed nothing, I woke up to a dirty house.  Am I ashamed? A little but not enough to really regret yesterday.  It was a lazy day of fun.  Big decisions were made about the upstairs painting.

     Our front room is large and has a hallway leading off that has 6 doors.  It has very formal crown molding and trim everywhere, ceilings, floors, then the built ins and the pocket doors to the formal dining room, also a large fireplace. All of this trim is done in bright white oil base enamel.  Then the walls are a light grey green called candle bark. We cannot repaint any of the trim unless it is oil base.  What a pain.  But it does hold up and looks good.  This room was last painted  17 years ago and is in desperate need of paint.  We decided to let a pro do it. It will be so expensive but I think it is worth it.  It also take a load off my mind. I am running out of money, but still have a few thousand left to remodel with, I just need to be very careful as we still have the outside of the house.

     As I did not do anything really constructive yesterday, I have to get something done today.  I stayed up way too late last night watching netflix. It was fun. But today I already have on my paint clothes and I have a load of clothes in the washer that just spun out.

   So the plan for the day is to finish this post take the load of wash to Lil sis's, get a soda, return and paint the ceiling and then go back and pickup dry clothes, do some house work (Hubs has cleaned the kitchen all week) and then paint the walls of the bedroom.  I swear by Monday morning that room will be painted.  Then kitchen will be cleaned (as in the floor) and the upstairs will be vacuumed.

     I plan on getting hubs to help me move the small table out of the kitchen so I can get to that area and start de cluttering and cleaning /packing next week.  Goals, goals, will I get anything done?

Wait and see...

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim,

  2. they no longer allow interior oil based paint to be sold in Ohio. We had to have a special primer applied (Amish around here get their paint from out of state) and then sanded and painted and sanded again and another coat of paint. Also had to use a higher quality of paint. Wasn't bad since I wasn't doing the painting. I will have to touch up woodwork around windows like you to the 3 dogs that think they have to stand on the window seals when all 3 can stand flat footed and see out.

    I went through my garden seeds, separated them by the temp of soil they are to be planted in and figured out what I was still missing and ordered it saving 45% with discounts, coupons and rebate.

    I had popcorn for supper, first time in over a year of being able to eat it. Hubby had leftovers.
    Not much snow, but the wind chill is still below zero and has been all day. Stayed in side and didn't go anywhere. Will go see Daddy mid week.

    1. Oil base paint just looks so nice and lasts so much longer.

  3. Will wonder never cease? You just let go for one day, and it bet you look ten years younger. If the thing Chef said is true, I would wash the paint the trim and call it good.

  4. I'm actually laying down with a headache. Should get off phone and make some coffee to help. Taking a day off won't hurt your productivity. I'm just lazy though.

  6. Thank goodness oil-based paint interior paint is still allowed in CT, because I just had my foyer (professionally) painted and the trim was previously done in oil. There is just no comparison when you're talking trim--the oil-based looks a million times richer and is far sturdier than latex. I don't care how much everyone yaps about how latex semi-gloss has improved--it ain't 'there' yet! This spring, my upstairs hallway and all 7 bedroom/closet doorways will be done in oil, too. I make it up to the environment in other ways...
