Weekend Projects

Thoughts of Home

It feels like its been a long time since a project was completed in one weekend.

So long, that its kind of surprising to have this one done. It went faster than I thought it would. (I did have a little help...)

Part one of the plan to move the guest room is to empty then paint the office, but I wanted to do it quick and cheap. With the leftover paint in the garage, it made sense to make do instead of putting a whole new color up.

I'm so glad I did because I  had forgotten how much I loved this pale yellow color that I picked out 10 years ago. It had been sitting forgotten, and we were re-introduced. Hello old friend. I remember you now...

And I was happy it only took one coat to make the whole room look fresh again.

And I saved some money.

Except I didn't.

I still ended up spending some money on it for disposable paint trays, tape,  and new rollers but it was a lot cheaper than a gallon of good paint (the bathroom paint job was surprisingly expensive.)

I filled the nail holes with wood filler and sanded it down then one thick coat of paint, cleaned everything up and I am done!
Except I am not done....
Is anyone really ever done with projects?
Just like the bathroom, the fresh paint makes the baseboards look dingy, so before the rooms are swapped around, I now plan to paint them bright white.
It does not end.

  1. What a big difference from just a bit of effort. The room looks so fresh now. Thank you so much for joining the gathering at Thoughts of Home on Thursday.

  2. I love projects like this! I also like that it was comforting to you to pull out the old paint color. That sounds like something I'd say.

    Happy Thoughts of Home. :)
