Well, hello there! Whatcha been doin'?
("Hi Phineas. Whatcha doin'?" We watch that show a lot.)
Wanna know what I've been doing? Well do ya?
I painted half a wall.
And I decided that I needed some fake pharmacy-style wallpaper on my new, white, half-wall.
Is this so random?
It's pretty random. But it sounded fun 'n different and not permanent, so I went for it.
Then, I pulled out my dryer. All by myself. Either dryers aren't nearly as heavy as I thought they were, or I have become ALL POWERFUL.
I choose to go with the latter. I'm like a demi-god! And the next thing you know, I'm all, "Release the kraken!"
So anyways, I pulled out my dryer.
And I have something to say about that, by the way. How is it, that all my laundry was done, and the dryer was unusable for only 3 days, and somehow, I had a pile of dirty clothes that could have collapsed and suffocated small dogs?
3 days, people.
Anyhow, I pulled out my dryer. And I got to bricking.
It's a verb, now.
And I made a heeee-uge mess. And there was dust everywhere, and I'm pretty sure it's been tracked down the stairs, and up the stairs, and perhaps our food will even be gritty.
And the actual bricking was no big deal-- but holy cow, cleaning the bricks during and afterward--
no. It's too soon. I can't talk about it. But I like to think all the residue I left on the bricks gives them "character".
It makes them look old. Just nod your head I'm tired people.
Oh crap I can see a ton of more scraping/wiping work in this picture. Great.
Ta da!! A half-brick wall! It's all the material I had. Don't you judge me.
Me likey. Many thanks to my brother and his lovely wife, for letting me have this brick out of the kindness of their hearts.
Does anyone give a doo-doo how I did this? Let me know. I promise to do the clearest (clear as mud) tutorial I can.
