A few funnies

The life of a home renovator while living in the home can be challenging. While I have recently whined about the challenges I have chosen to embrace them instead. There will be NO MORE WHINING!

This week has brought laughter instead and what’s better than laughing.

I have been preparing the upstairs bedroom for an actual bed. Guest, here they come!!  The headboard and footboard needed to be spruced up a little. It has been moved a lot since we sold our home. To the carport it goes. Spray paint in hand. The finished product is now on the back deck ready to be hailed upstairs.

As you see it was almost dark when I finished. Straight to the shower I go.


Maybe painting in flip floors is not the best choice. I now have permanent flip flop marks on my feet until the paint wears off


I have quite the hoard. The hoard is located in many rooms of the old house. Until rooms are completed, I can’t sort through the hoard to use items so the hoard remains intact. Sometimes when I walk by the parlor to go into our room, I feel like I should be on the TV show Hoarders. However instantly I know there are no dead rodents or feces hiding in my hoard. My hoard is glorious and I will not retreat.




I have for weeks searched for white cotton 24″ cafe curtains for our Master Bathroom.This currently is the window minus curtains. Now it’s kind of imperative to have window coverings on the bathroom. However I will not SETTLE! We currently use our bathroom in the dark. We gather our belongings for a shower, turn the light off, step into the lighted shower where no one from the outside world can see, finish up and come out clean and dressed. So maybe not the best of situations but we make it work and it’s better than waving at the neighbors as you step out of the shower.


Another fun thing in our bathroom has been lack of storage.  We really need a place to put our towels. I have a really cute idea running around in my head but until then, the towels live in the claw foot tub.


The floors upstairs all need another coat of paint. I finished the front bedroom or at least I thought they were finished until Kyles dog decided to visit upstairs without anyone knowing. I’ve had a few people tell me to keep the dog prints. Yeah……..no.

Gotta go.  It’s Friday and the coffee awaits. Lots of Reno work to be accomplished today. Since I can’t find curtains the next best thing to do is make them. However my sewing machine is lost in the hoard somewhere.

Make it a great day!

    Not a “hoard” a collection. Everything is coming together so nicely.
