Our living room walls before.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions involved painting the house. We’d done the entry, stairs and hall in March. And, yay, I finally got to slather our little yellowy-beige living room (above) in white (below) over the last two days. It’s not quite done. Before the painting got started, I picked up the living room and dumped most of its contents onto the dining room. So I must do something about that…
And of course, how is it that as soon as you get one big job done, 10 new little ones pop-up like mushrooms ever so suddenly? Like trim re-painting and wall stenciling for instance. How does this happen?
Our living room walls after, and me smirking.
And furthermore, answer me this. How is it that I have acquired so many ugly things? Like the ugly lamp, the ugly ottoman, the ugly mirror, and the ugly cushions for instance. And why is it, pray tell, that I must now refurbish all these things, because I refuse to replace them because they work just fine, but I cannot continue living with them as they are, because they are simply too ugly, and I must have a very bad habit of taking leave of my senses over and over again when I buy stuff? Why?
If you have any insight into any of the above questions, do let me know. Me? I’m off to refurbish or paint something.
You have a yourself a great day, and I’ll see you soon!
