Paint, Not Just For Walls Anymore

Guess what I did this weekend?

You can't see the huge drip of paint that fell off the ceiling right into my eye and sent me screaming and running to the kitchen sink. I don't think that there could be any worse paint job than painting a ceiling, and a wainscott ceiling is the worst of them all.

Click on the photo to see the before and on-the-way-to after. I need to finish painting it this week, in between being a basball shuttle service, so that we can tear up the ugly carpeting and put down the tile floor that has been sitting in boxes in our house for well over a year now.

And then I can welcome my new chair home and into the room.

Glad to hear the room is coming along. We have endless home improvement projects and boxes from our move almost three years ago it sucks.

The room is looking great so far.

And you got your new chair. I cant wait to see a picture of it.

Oh that family from Arkansas is the Duggars they were on the discovery health channel last year when she had baby number 15. She home schools them all and they just built their own house, very impressive it looks like a compound it is enormous. Very interesting family. Good for them wanting more children if they can take care of them the more the merrier. They also all have names that start with J, I can only imagine the confussion. My mom had a hard enough time calling us 5 by the right name and we had different intials.

Very nice! I would like to own a home one day that I can paint any way I wish to. For now, we are in army quarters and stuck with white white walls. Blech!

Girlfriend! - you need to wear protective goggle/glasses - I have a spare I can send you. I learned the hard way -- oh and a cheap shower cap!

I thought of you today - ran across (accidently - cause I really REALLY hate the show) - The View...and they interviewed a family of 16 kids from Utah. OMG the kids and parents were charming and delightful and classly -- UNLIKE the ladies interviewing them! Jo asked her if they had ALL been del'd through her vagina! (her words!) and then asked if she was going to have another baby after delivering the one she is pregnant with -- and then said WHY!? -- when the mother said she WOULD like more children.

OMG - it was tragically disgusting!

I am definitely writing the show. What a buncha morons -- who keeps that show on the air!?

Anyway - I have been reading you since finding you through your comments on brash hetty - come visit me sometime!

Hugs!

It looks great! Sorry about the eye! I ate some paint this weekend while painting the stair risers in my house. I kept accidentally touching my mouth, in between fishing puppies out of the paint they kept stepping in.

FYI, baby wipes and windex with vinegar gets rid of paint that ends up on hardwood floors. Useful tip, I might add.

I want to hear about the tile! Email me! Do you have tips? I think I am going to tile my basement floor myself.

With your arm and the way my legs and feet looked today after a doing some painting, we could make one whole paint covered woman. Why is it impossible to paint neatly?

We have quite a few rooms with ceilings like that. The only time we painted (just the nursery), we had about 5 people come over and help. It was great (especially for me, since I got to sit around downstairs and wait. Pregnancy has its privileges! They were using brushes like a sponge that tapered to a point to cut in all the cracks. I'd never seen one before, but it seemed to work well.

Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my natural health spa
related site. It pretty much covers natural health spa
stuff. I guess you may find something of interest.

Hi, my name is Kenny Williams and I have suffered from severe acne. In fact, I also had problems with hair loss and weight loss and I lost all self confidence at some point and all my friends too. Now, a few months later, after discovering the Health Reviews website, I feel much much better. After reading their success stories and recommendations, their Top Health Reviews really helped me. Do you realize how good can this be? NO more problems. Finally I can got back my smile. That is the reason I am so happy now!
