All.Most.Done.

The bathroom is nearly done.

Meanwhile...

The Little Mermaid called. She wanted her sea shells back. She was very upset that anyone would think to use her shells as light fixtures in the first place.

I was happy to be rid of them.

I didn't stay happy for long. Seems those shells covered more wall space than the new fixture I chose. Back to patching, spackling, sanding, and painting.
It's been an adventure to say the least and I anticipate a long, long break before I try any more projects around the house. I am happy to report that, despite a few setbacks, I still seem to be level headed. This could change if I don't finish soon!

Clever photo that last one. It took me a moment to figure out what you were saying, but then calm, level-headed logic prevailed.

Well done on the rest of it, too (despite my attempts to distract you). Have others seen that it is good?

Hanah said...

I can't wait to see the finished product! So far so good! I loved the level headed pic. ha :D I know Lisa J. from church but mainly by her younger sis Lex. Thanks for your quick response! So sorry mine is so belated. :D Good luck getting it all done before your family gets back!

I am very impressed with your remodeling skills. Can I hire you to paint my house?

Craze said...

Home improvement projects tend to send me on the verge of needing a straight jacket and a new home with padded walls.

Bethany said...

Charlotta, you are such a goofball! But then again, so am I - maybe that's why I miss having you around so much these days! Hope your project isn't too bad to finish up.

VERY cute! I love your sense of humor! I can say that I have seen the bathroom and you have done a great job! I like the color...it grows on me more nad more just thinking about it.

Melissa said...

Wait...those weren't the little mermaid's seashell, those were mine. I'd like those back...thanks.

Shankar: I'd certainly expect you to get the level-headed pun.

Hanah: Come back Wednesday for the new look.

Melissa: Um, no. No. No. and No.

Craze: I wonder if Lowe's sells padded walls...

Bethany: Come on over! We can be goofballs together.

Katy: I am liking the color more and more each day as well. Glad you like it.

Melissa: Come get them! They are outside in the trash bin. Trash day is Thursday...better hurry.

I don't know why you would ever think of replacing those light fixtures. Where's your taste?? Those are AWESOME! And in Casper Wyoming those were sold out of Walmart in like two days.

The new fixtures is much better than the others. Good Luck with other projects!
