It’s spring break around here this week. My parents were so wonderful as to take BOTH the girls for the week. After the initial shock of being completely without children wore off, I got to work. I’ve been running all around town and around this house trying to get things and projects done that having children with me are 100 times harder to do.
One of the biggest projects I’ve tackled this week is the laundry room. I bought a gallon of paint during the summer and put some paint on the laundry room walls to see if I liked it. I did like the color, but painting it was a total nightmare. The paint was super runny and every brush stoke, half of it seemed to end up on the floor. Mix some curious little girls into it (the situation, not the paint) and it was impossible to get done. So I left that room not even half done for 6 months. I just liked to keep the door closed so I didn’t have to look at my failed project. I am a finisher, I can’t stand to leave anything half done, so this room was killing me.
Well now that I had all the time in the world, I taped off all the baseboards and cabinets and lined the floor with newspaper. And I just got it done. It took me 3 days of painting too.
Here’s the before. Taken 5 years ago. Hence the old washer. It was a matching set…
And the after.
I painted the art of laundry hanging out on a line. I’ve been wanting laundry themed art in there for awhile. Art is another project that is way less stressful without children.
And that’s a little of what I’ve been doing on my spring break. I thought I was going to be doing yard work, but it’s been raining on and off the last 3 days.
Anyone else have any spring break projects they are tackling this week?
