Is anyone paying attention to how long this entryway makeover is taking me?
What is this, like, week 4 or 5 of phase 3??
Recall this dreamy entryway that is the lofty and unattainable goal:
(How many times can one post this picture? A lot, apparently. And is there such a thing as too many?)
I blame all this time I'm taking on painting. Good grief it takes forever. And you know?
When I painted this wall white two weeks back, I surprisingly. . . actually. . . found it soothing.
I figured it was because I'd complained so much about painting that I'd hit rock bottom, and there was nowhere to go but up.
Well that lasted about 5 seconds and now I'm back to the dark side. ("Anger leads to Hate. Hate leads to suffering. . .")
I'd estimate it takes me about 1/10th the time to rip, cut, and nail my pieces up,
And the rest to paint. I'm saying "paint" like a swear. Or the word "panties", because we all know I hate that word, too. Just had a hard time typing it.
I purposely left the gap between my pieces of ply and my routed 1x3 pieces, so as to add in some lovely, expensive rope moulding.
It's not because I made a stupid measuring error, okay? Get off my back!
And since I'm full of nothing but whiney honesty today, know that these still need more caulking. They could use another coat of paint.
And so could the door. But let us not talk about that right now. Finding my happy place. . .
But we're getting there, right?
And. . .um, I've also decided that the door casing needs a massive moulding re-do, and since I had all that time to think while I've painted, I've concocted 2 other massive projects in this space, too. So "Project Entryway" will be done in 2027. Ish. Wait for it.
