You know what's missing with this picture?
Besides, well, doneness of this project?
The door. It's the only one without beefed up moulding. And this is so wrong. It's been keeping me up nights. It invades my dreams. . .
and then a few peeps commented on my "thin" door moulding, and that was just the final straw.
("But I have a transom! What do I do with the transom!" I said.)
So, the other day, I was showering my hot and bodacious bod.
(I'm 33. I am so sick of hating my body. Plus I don't want my kids to pick up on this kind of crap.)
the water was running over my luscious curves, (I come up with my best ideas whilst showering), and it was then that I realized!
"Duh! I'm sure other people have moulded around a transom! Get some inspiration, here! This is so doable! Der!"
("Der" is my other "Duh" word. Try it in a sentence today.)
I mean, isn't this one beautiful?
And so I ran on downstairs and crow barred my existing casing right off, because I meant biz-nis.
And it left a huge, dusty mess, and I had vacuumed this entire area right before. Sometimes I just don't make sense.
So, um, my door doesn't photograph well. I swear it looks better in real life. Well, better enough not to bug me. Let us not speak of this anymore.
And so I started slapping random pieces of moulding up here-- I wasn't even sure exactly what/how I wanted this--
But I knew it needed to involve this moulding, because it is so very choice.
And yet, it's not beefy enough, so I decided to add some height to it.
Okay-- okay. Let's just get this out of the way--
My monogram "T" that sits above my door-- it's. . . I. . .
No. It's too soon. I can't talk about it. Something went very wrong and now I have to get the stupid huge ladder and fix my wall and it's so heavy I can't even carry it, and I'm very upset, and let us not speak of this anymore! It is dead to us. DEAD.
So! Some fluting for the sides, a couple more pieces of whatever left in the garage slapped up there for good measure,
and it's a little less "thin". I like it. Now someone kick me in the buns to get the beams done in this area, because I need that little push.
