Alright, it’s true. The reason that I was so excited, well a large part of the reason, aside from theÂ need to have something under control in this house, about the completed night table project, and yes I do like long run on sentences, was because at the moment we have so many projects that are NOT completed. That is not to say that they will never be completed, although it sometimes feels that way, but I just feel a little scattered with regard toÂ where to focus my energies right now.
Should it be the unfinished master (and I use that term loosely) bathroom? Note the spackle on the walls waiting to be sanded so that painting can continue.
Should it be the living room? What was that I just said about spackle?
What about the dining room? More spackle???
Why was I put in charge of spackle??? Could it possibly be because I am the only one who can do it correctly? No… that seems highly unlikely. Because I’m the only one who sees the real need Â for it? Entirely more likely, I’m afraid. So rather than have hole studded walls (the previous owner must have had a serious amount of art… I believe the sun room alone has 30 nail holes!)… I spackle. And as anyone who spackles will tell you… you spackle, you wait for it to dry, you sand, and you repeat. It can be quite a process. 30 nail holes? Really???
Honestly though, there is something soothing about starting withÂ a blob of spackle and finishing with a smooth wall. A small price to pay for freshly painted walls, I suppose. Except for the dust!!!
Fortunately, or unfortunately, theÂ three rooms mentioned are not the only ones in need of this treatment… I’m trying to pace myself.
Stay tuned to see which room I decide to prioritize…
P.S. Have you ever seen the word spackle used so often in one post? I count nine… add one more completely unneccessary spackle, to make it an even ten, and now I’m considering contacting the Guinness Book of World Records.
