Today I took a step forward on my bedroom project; one small step for a project, one giant leap for lazy people everywhere.
Yeah, you may recall that my bedroom has had sa-weet unpainted crown moulding for over a year because I've been too busy (lazy? distracted?) to prime and paint.
I always have an excuse -- oil-based primer is stinky, so I wanted to wait until the weather was better and I could open my window to air it out. Then I didn't have any brushes in the house. (I use them once for oil-based paints and toss them. Did I mention that I'm lazy?) Then I had the brushes, but it was a Tuesday. Then my horoscope told me not to make any drastic changes. All completely legitimate excuses, right?
No longer, friends!
Check out my progress:
Oh... you thought I had painted? Or even primed? Nah -- it's a Tuesday again, guys. Also, I've put this project off for so long that if I rushed it by being too on task, I might disturb the balance of the universe. Or something. Anyway I caulked, and that has to count for something.
And while I caulked, I realized a few very important things:
- I waited way too long to start this project -- holy procrastination, Batman.
- This summer has been almost entirely unproductive, unless you're counting iced tea consumption and books read. I hope you've enjoyed a similarly lazy summer.
- I really need to dust my chandelier.
But I'm pretty sure I can't dust on Tuesdays either. Darn.
