I woke up this morning wondering what I was going to post for my Sunday Snapshot.
Because there is so much going on.
But so little to show for it. At least for the time being.
And then I walked into my kitchen and it dawned on me.
Frog Tape and level – the chevron wall we’re attempting in the big boys’ room
cordless drill – hanging stuff all over the house
roller, paint and stirrers – big boys’ room and little boys’ room are currently under construction (note: do not let your 9 year old select paint supplies, cheap rollers are not the way to go)
mail – completely unopened
twist-tie – potentially useful
napkins – life with this many kids is messy
packing tape – my ER solution for the kids’ board games that didn’t take the move well
spackle – spackle, how I love you – you cover my wall hanging mistakes so perfectly
And that pretty much sums up last week.
Asher and Dalton decided on Monday that they were ready to roll on their room re-do, despite the fact that I had many, many other things to do. I (possibly foolishly) figured I’d jump on it while they were so intent on helping.
We devised a half-baked plan and got going sanding, priming and painting their wood furniture black – the furniture they’ve used since forever. Then we painted their room – Martha Stewart cement – and began the
misery drudgery mind-numbing task of working out a chevron pattern on their wall.
It’s been quite a week.
Hope to have some “after” shots for y’all soon.
