that was followed by my first wheezy congested trip to home depot, and an early bedtime. saturday i got up at 7, called home depot's rental department to find the one truck [thats right. singular] had already been rented. i went and bought a step ladder which proved to be more than sufficient, 3 ridiculously expensive gallons of paint, trim paint, and ceiling paint, and returned home to stare at the walls some more.
found on pinterest and hilariously apropos
now im not saying i want to go into government or anything. but this home repair stuff is totally my kind of housework. not dusting tschotskes, making dinner for my husband, picking up toys from little mouthbreathers, donning my frilly apron and midi-length skirt and taking orders.
new fun toy, and filled those gaping cracks right in. two corners of my room needed this treatment, and by the second, i had the actual paper taping step down pat. the far right pic looks pretty decent, considering it doesnt even have the tape layer down. that is just obsessively squared-off mud.
