I don’t know what causes
my ‘I better get this done’ mode to strike,
but I sure do enjoy it when it happens.
I have shared before that my parents
‘having projects’ living.
I am so glad they did.
It is SO satisfying.
My home has been a big hot mess
for two weeks while I rearranged, painted, and happily stewed,
my home/my friend
(flea market find- just visiting until it goes to Daughter #1)
My staging process , created by accident, has worked like a charm.
As I moved things out of a room, I put them on a table in the dining room.
‘what is this?’
‘who bought this?’
‘where can I put this?’
I have , with Benny’s help and lots of
Diet Coke and iced tea worked so hard
I can’t walk.
*discovered a new favorite lamp, in pale turquoise- at the flea market
*had the kitchen painted SW Kilim beige
*had a nervous breakdown about the paint color/sought your opinions
*left it for another day… a much later day
*had the master bedroom painted SW Morning Fog
*had master bath painted the same color
*repainted the master bath a darker shade
*had daughters screen my calls because a million house questions seems to get on their nerves
*decided something paranormal is happening- no matter what paint color I pick, my bathroom looks blue
*had dimmers installed in our two dining areas- everyone looks better in dimmed light- who needs to see?
*realized I may need to wear a miner’s lamp
*had a small chandelier hung in the hall bath- I can’t get enough sparkle
*had a toe to toe discussion with Benny about the taping and floating that was needed- I let Benny (Eldon) win…
*broke my toe ramming it into something on the floor that was NOT on my staging table
*had another strange photographic experience.
Does this ever happen to you?
My house – like me- is NOT always photogenic.
Do you ever look at pictures of yourself and feel confused because you THOUGHT you looked one way but the photo says something altogether different?
My house is the same way.
I think things look great, I take a picture, and everything looks
But all is not lost-
I listened to Michael McDonald and danced (on one broken toed foot)
Pictures tomorrow- right or wrong.
Maybe it’s the photographer?
