after a long week…
…of working + a not so stellar Friday, I came home midafternoon yesterday (Friday) to putter at the house. To keep my mind busy and get something accomplished. I managed to take out the two mosaic tiles I laid wrong on the bathroom floor and which have been driving me NUTS! I realize many people might not notice it (like my husband) but I couldn’t handle staring at it all the time.
I also finally painted the baseboards, touched up a few places on the walls and removed the bathroom door to paint in the garage. [For now we have an open-door policy, meaning we have no bathroom door and our Boston Terrier (Moose) insists on coming in to play at the exact moment you need to use the washroom.] Friday afternoon I also got a crash course from a lovely man who worked at Rona. So now tomorrow the project is to figure out how to replace the cold water line (after I go strawberry picking!).
Another rainy day (Saturday) has led me to putter away inside the house (after my amazing pedi). However, I was in one of those moods where I just wanted to do a few things here and there. The problem with those days is that it looks like nothing ever actually gets accomplished because there isn’t one whole room that is organized. I piddled around with the office then the guest room, followed by taking the light off the front of the house to paint (since I decided I liked the overall shape and style), which then led to organizing our DVDs that were still in a box and packing up our bottles/cans (our friends daughter is collecting them to return for cash and savings for her dream dollhouse – too cute).
In the midst of my random day, TV Trays I purchased online were dropped off. Not too bad a deal for $20. However, they are generic like something I could purchase at Walmart. I am not a fan of generic…so another DIY has come to mind. I love the look of bright paint paired with wood.So I think I might paint the stand black, then the legs either all different bold colours or all four stands the same. But leave the top just the plain wood. Thoughts?
Now, for Saturday evening I’m planning on cuddling with Moose, watching Devil Wears Prada (cause I love looking at the clothes) and having a glass (or two) of wine.
