Suzan says - Welcome home - did you have a good day?
John says - Any time away from here makes for a good day
Suzan says - Well that's nice to know - I cleaned up for you -
John says - Very nice ( in the most sarcastic voice you can imagine )
I don't get it - I tried to make it as homey as possible LMHO
Even I - who just love the transformation process of turning something like this into something pretty - am discouraged by it if truth be told but I do know that the worst is over - and that every single day from here on in, it's going to get better :)
John says - You're not taking pictures of this for your blog are you?
Suzan says - Yes I am
John says - Oh for God Sakes - I'm trying to build business up - I'm selling high end fabric and garments - I don't need people to know what I'm living in.
John says - We went from a prestigious address to this hell hole
John says - in a high pitched voice - supposedly imitating me - Oh - it's going to be gorgeous !!!
Suzan says - And it WILL be - it just may take a leetle bit longer than I originally thought
John says - They'll be burying us - AND IT'LL STILL LOOK LIKE THIS - IT'S TOO BIG, THIS JOB!!!
John says - Why can't you just admit you were wrong this time.
John yells - IS THAT MY CASHMERE COAT THROWN ON THAT CHAIR????
Suzan says - Listen - with everything I have to worry about - I don't need to worry about your coat
Suzan says- Hang it up
John yells - WHERE??????????????????
Ok - I'm asking all of you dear readers - if I ever tell you I'm buying a fixer upper in the future - JUST STOP ME - REALLY - JUST STOP ME
The bedroom is so close to being done that I can taste it
What does a bedroom taste like, you ask?
Like fresh paint - and sanded floors and walls - and refurbished windows - and wallpaper and pretty curtains
Today I'm loving the wallpaper again LOL
AND guess what yours truly ( inspector clousseau - ette ) discovered today???
These wood inserts that fit the windows - they were in one of the closets in the dormers tucked way back
The clips are missing that hold them in place - there was duct tape on them - such a Canadian thing to do
I ripped it off - and put my frog tape on instead LOL
Still, I'm thrilled to have found them - they'll be spray painted black tomorrow to match the windows
( and I may use a little piece of black electrical tape until I find the right brackets because tape seems to be the way to go in this house :)
Want to see the kitchen ceiling so far? It's only been primed so use your imagination 'K?
I had to come up with an alternative plan from the ceiling I originally wanted because the money is flying out the door - you can see the original coveted ones HERE - and I still love them with a passion - but too too expensive - and in the end I may just love these as much!!!
I'll tell you all about it when I do the " Kitchen Ceiling " post lol -
Such a great alternative to a standard ceiling - I really am loving it -
Which makes 2 things I love so far -
against the 4 million and 3 hundred and 62 thousand things I hate....................
If anyone needs me - I'll be sitting in the corner of the bedroom - on the floor - admiring the view and wishing the bed didn't have to be put plunk right in the middle of that window - hiding the curtains..............
It IS going to be pretty - please tell me it IS going to be pretty ?
Oh and I'm just finishing off the bedroom closets -
Suzan says - Oh them? I got bored of them on the buffet - time for a change..................
I'm missing my last house a little too much this week -
Have a wonderful Friday everyone - I'm off to have a tooth pulled - in the midst of all of this - a tooth crumbled in my mouth this week - which means I now have to make a decision concerning a bridge or an implant.
I'd rather be choosing a kitchen sink :(
Christmas is less then 2 weeks away - this will be the first Christmas in 35 years ( with the exception of 1 ) that I haven't had it here at home - Lindsay's going to do it at her place this year )
I may discover I like it that way LOL
