I hope everyone had a relaxing Memorial weekend. Unfortunately, I did not. I started a project that should have taken me a day (or so I thought). Since we moved Will to a toddler bed, I wanted to reflect that in his room decor. At the time, it seemed like a great idea.
How hard is it to remove a wallpaper border? Extremely hard! Bill took the kids to his moms and five hours later I was done with just the border. Sigh. I still had to paint. No problems there, right? I wish. I bought Behr paint with primer in it thinking it would save me time. No such luck. After 3 (aff) coats of paint and 3 (aff) days in that room, we still aren't done. It really could use a 4th coat, but I am so done painting. Part of the problem is that Bill picked suck a dark blue to paint it. (Sorry no pics — Will is napping right now and well, we aren't done). We did get some shelves up. The other problem is that we made it Handy Manny themed (which Will loves). There is nothing out there to decorate with, so we are winging it right now with how to decorate the walls.
It looks nice, it's not done, and it took twice as long as it should. Why is every project in the house a pain in the butt?
