This year I am joining the Nester in her 31 Days of writing about something every day in the month of October. My topic: Get It Done. My goal is to complete and blog about at least 1 task or project a day that I have either thought about, talked about or procrastinated about for more than a day. And, lucky for me that list is plenty long enough to carry me through the month of October and beyond. Some of the projects will require more than a day to complete, especially those that involve painting or staining, so I’ll just spread those out as necessary.
Day 1: Get the Ladder out of the Dining Room
Really? You’re thinking. Yes, really. The dining room has looked like this for at least 2 weeks now (maybe 3).
See I hung all the curtains in the dining room and front living room and then realized that I needed to adjust the height of the bar (I learned how to DIY the curtain rod here). The curtains were hanging a little too long. I wanted them to barely brush the floor and they were about an inch and half too long. So I was a good girl and readjusted the height of both bars and filled all the holes in the drywall, but then must have lost steam while waiting for the filler to dry because that’s where I stopped. I intentionally left the ladder thinking it would keep me motivated to finish things up… ummm, apparently it takes more than a ladder to motivate me.
But, today I finally ventured into the basement and brought up the spare paint (a giant 5 gallon bucket) left by the builders and finished the job. If you look closely you can see the white spot under the middle bracket is gone. And, most importantly the ladder is out of the dining room and back in the garage where it belongs. Yay!
