Once again, I was super stressed about getting my William Morris Project done, but this morning I realized that I actually have not one but TWO to share! Two! Yay me!
What's this you say?
Other than being a sad representation of my ability to procrastinate finishing up projects....
it is also the doorway trim FINALLY going from brown to white!
Way back in November the walls went from Forest Green to Beige (Mmmm..... beige. Boring, but now my basement looks HUGE). And as we've been doing with the other freshly painted rooms, the trim went from brown to white. Most of it. I don't know what happened to me, but 2 of the 3 doorways managed to get mostly primed, and then..... unfinished. For months.
I stared at those sad, patchy doorways through the winter holidays. And chanted excuses to myself: I'm busy, It's Thanksgiving, It's Christmas, It's cold outside, It's winter break, I'm sick ..... excuse, excuse, excuse.
But, now: WHITE!
And guess what: BONUS PROJECT!
All our bathrooms have the same cheap faucet.
It's adequate, but that's the most generous adjective I can use for it.
The bathtubs have the same style of faucet, and the day we moved in, we removed all the handles & ran them through the dishwasher because they were CRAWLING WITH GREEN MOLD.
And my husband wonders why I have such a fondness for cleaning products.
During one of our 4 trips to the hardware store this week, we came across this beauty for $28:
And after another $15 in supplies, it was installed! Funny how $28 turns into $43 so quickly.
But when the hub was changing it out, the hoses underneath started to leak mercilessly. I love this house, but wow, was it cheaply built. Anyway, 2 days, 2 more trips to the hardware store & we have a new satin nickel faucet and non-leaky plumbing underneath!
Finally, here's the reason I wasn't sure I'd have a project to share with you this week:
Birthday party on Saturday!
Much to do before then!
