What you guys doing today?
I'm painting in the kitchen - you know those little touches .....................
And I have the C.D. player blasting - and I'm humming and I'm singing
John says - Can you keep it down, a little, do you think?
Suzan says - Why does it bother you if I sing a little?
Suzan says - If I'm singing I'm happy -
Suzan says - Would you rather I be witching ?
Suzan says - Why do I have to be quiet anyway, what are you doing?
John says - Trying to read the paper
Suzan SCREAMS - Reading the freaking paper? There's a house with a million things to do in it!
Suzan sings as loud as she can " I READ THE NEWS TODAY, OH BOY - ABOUT A LUCKY MAN WHO MADE THE GRADE..................... " ♪
Who lounges around reading the paper when you've just bought a major fixer upper?
If it doesn't work in the bathroom, I'm going to have it transferred to a perfect little spot in the kitchen.
It's become a little redundant since we updated the kitchen - the configuration doesn't allow it to open more than a few inches - but still I wanted to keep it right where it was ( the new window will be the one that gets opened up to allow those gentle winter breezes to form pretty icicles on my dishes...............:)
The glass is old - very old - and wavy and dimpled and I just love the little bit of original character it
brings into the room - hoping it'll look ok with the custom French Chateau window we've ordered ( which will be black as well ) because they're on the same wall - I think I'll have to plant a lilac tree or bush outside this wall - just ignore me - that was an internal thought as I was typing away.
I also painted out the wood trim that acts as ledge against the marble tiles and then " sealed " the marble ( including the floor thresholds I used as a back splash ). Fingers are crossed that it holds up for at least a year :)
Here's how that view looked when we bought it by the way
Next I painted the back door - still singing - until John rudely put the T.V on super loud..............
I silently painted. ( well singing on the inside - but that doesn't count really )
The only reason I have the window covered ( and it's temporary ) is because the mud room off of
it is in a terrible state - I used these panels I found once at the Dollar Store - 2 in a pack
( I did a post on them a long long time ago - when the earth was green )
They come in different patterns of which I have all ( OCD anyone? nah - not me ) haven't a clue which box they're in so used what I could easily find :)
They attach by little rings in those holes you see along the perimeter - you simply hook them up to the size you need.
I put them on a little rod - and hung them on the outside of the door
and voila - a little privacy and no hardware to look at - for under 5.00
Doo ♪ - Doo - Doo ♪ ♪
Lookin' out my back door......................
( it's too cold out - otherwise there'd be happy people dancin' on my lawn, don't you know )
EVERY girl should have a little black dress - AND a little black window :)
