Hubs and I went to Home Depot today. We got deep nap rollers to paint our popcorn ceilings we hate, but what’s left up there isn’t half of what went up and I can’t breathe well enough to tolerate having it scraped. At least it’ll be clean popcorn, lol. That is if the girl I asked about painting (I just saw her mom who told me she might have a job soon, but that’s a whole other story) didn’t get the job she got applied for. Then the walls can be done, they’ll be easy compared to a 16′ high peaked cathedral ceiling complete with a ceiling fan on the beam. Things you don’t think of when you’re 22 and looking to buy a house quickly to get out of the condo you love and hubs hates and the buyers gave you 30 days to be gone. <sigh> And we love moving so much we’re still here almost 35 years later.
We also got canvas drop cloths. Probably the last ones on the planet to do so. For now they will just cover the front windows to keep the dogs from seeing and very loudly barking at every little–and I do mean little–thing. We’ll use plastic drop cloths when the painting happens. Then I have some plans for the canvas.
Last, but not least, we got some OOPS paint and some plaster of paris and I’m going to try a home recipe for knock-off ASCP. Got some Freecycle, tag sale and thrift shop items to try it out on. I’ll let you know how it goes.
To all you moms–HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!!!
I’d love to hear what you did for Mother’s Day. I got a hydrangea from sonny, a bigger one from hubs and we’re going to Ruby Tuesday with hubs’ Mom for lunch. At 96 she doesn’t want to go out by dinner time. God bless her.
