Do you see those windows? Yes, I know they are filthy. Thank you camera for accentuating that. I have 15 of those eight pained windows to prime and paint. It is taking forever. I am very excited that I was actually able to open all of them. They haven't been opened in years and I thought they were all rusted shut, but a little WD-40 and a lot of swearing and they opened. I'm so excited.
Yeah, the office remodel continues. I am in painting hell. I lied to myself over the weekend and said this workweek wouldn't be so bad and I could spend most of my time painting and get back in there in a week.
Not so much.
Work is crazy busy -- which is good. Those windows however, are unbelievably time consuming. I'm still priming them. Monday I wasn't able to paint at all, yesterday a couple of hours in the evening -- which means this morning I catch up on the housework (and I use that term loosely) I didn't do last night which means this afternoon I catch up on the work I skimped on this morning when I was catching up on the housework (still using the term loosely).
So yes, I have had moments of panic about this project. But really. Is it going to last forever? No. One coat of primer and two coats of paint are going to take much longer than I thought but in the end it will be worth it. I'm also going to sand and polyurethane the floor. I want to pull those ceiling panels off because there is bead board under there, but I'm going to put that off (don't tell me I should be doing that now. I know that.).
Honestly I'm really excited about it. It's a huge step for me to be proactive and take on a project like this. The decluttering and throwing stuff out is huge.
Once it's done, instead of walking into the room and trying to ignore the rusty windows, dirty walls and tons of junk I'll walk in and feel proud of the work I did and the beautiful space that is just mine.
