Friday, I went to my FIL's house to drop off some cookies he'd ordered for the girls' school fundraiser. He's working on a major clean out the house project, so he gave me...
|A big box of pictures! (I opened it)|
Which made me think about the unfinished hallway project. I'd textured it with the intent to paint, but couldn't ever get the motivation to paint. My plan was to arrange pictures of all the kids on the wall, except I didn't have any pictures of my stepkids from when they were little- the eternal problem of the stepparent- we don't have any of their baby stuff. Well, all of these pictures from my FIL just happened to be their baby pictures...
I took it as a sign!
I needed to paint the hallway so I could FINALLY have a wall with all the kids' baby pictures and pictures growing up.
|Mid-project. Going from texture to color!!|
But as I was painting, I noticed something curious... Well, two somethings.
|Look at my ugly light fixture and lack of molding!!|
|The great dilemma|
My closet options are:
a. paint the doors white
b. paint the doors the accent color for the other wall, which will be green
c. As you can see, the closet is set back with a weird pillar separating each set of doors. Once upon a time, Hubby thought it would be nice to move the closet doors forward, turning weird unusable space into more closet space.
I discussed these options with Hubby, who nixed item c (which I really like) because I've given him too many projects lately and he doesn't want more. Still, even if I can convince him that I'm right, I still need a closet door color.
So that's how a simple thing like giving me pictures turns into a major project. And no, I haven't gotten them hung yet. This took all of my
Do your "simple projects" turn into something way more complicated? And, since I have a captive audience, what color should I paint my closet doors?
