work in progress

Saturday, March 22, 2008

I have been wanting to perk up my living room for some time now. January I picked out paint. Thru February I took down pictures and spackled holes. March I started taping high low and around the trim. I set on two walls to start with. Maybe co-ordinating and brightening all in one half room step. And last night I put on the first coat of paint, and today the second. I am thinking base coat, and going to leave up the tape for a while and gaze and admire for a bit.....working up courage to try the ragging technique. But my three month work in progress has renewed my self esteme that i can still get things done around here....slowly but surely. :-D And up and down that ladder was a lot of work hoisting myself up and lowering myself down, but i did it. I feel amazingly strong today.

    woo hoo!! go you!!

    I did some ragging it's not hard and boy I sure loved it. I've moved since then, and I am thinking of doing some here...

    Now to convince my husband that it would look good. We still have the cork-and-mirrors decor in our living room. Someone came by that hadn't been here for 20 years and commented that it was still the same!!

    It is so good to feel strong and capable. You are!

    What a positive feeling in your blog today. Your room is going to be beautiful after all the hard work you have put into preparing it. You deserve to sit back and admire your hard work.
    Just think, if you can sit back and admire and enjoy your new room with all the hard work you put into it, how much more you are going to enjoy and admire the new you after all the hard work you have put into becoming the healthy new you.
    Happy Easter and hugs,
