Important breaking news.
I'm almost pretty kind of sure, that the foam moulding I love and adore is on it's way out. I mean, I'm not sure SURE, but my Lowe's has stopped carrying it.
I don't know how I can go on.
Do you know what moulding I'm talking about? It's typically covered in plastic?
Like this stuff? I have it ev.er.y.where.
Which I have here?

And here and here and here and. . .
(below the mantel shelf)
(on top of my big mirror)
Yeah. It's gone-zo.
Lost and all alone. I always thought that I could make it on my own. . .
Yeah, that's a song.
Anyhow, run. Don't walk to your nearest hardware store and let me know if you're seeing this stuff at yours, okay? Buy what's left of it! All of it! What are we going to do?
So that's why I got these bad boys for dirt cheap. 'Cause they are moving this stuff out.
If memory serves me, and it hardly ever does, these were $7 a piece. They are now $1.
So I bought the rest of the box. That's the only thing that made sense to me.
Do you want some?
And. . . for kicks 'n giggles. . . I started just sticking them on my ceiling. Yes friends-- it's ceiling moulding day.
Just for the record!
I absolutely ADORE a coffered ceiling. I prefer it by far. I love it and I love it and I love it amen.
The thoughts of doing a coffered ceiling myself makes me want to curl up in a ball and suck my thumb.
Some things are worth doing yourself, and somethings are worth paying for. If I want a coffered ceiling, I'm going to have to pony up the dough, okay?
So we're doing something simple. Also, still paranoid about that aforementioned "casino" look the Daddy-o referred to.
Here we go.. . one quarter done. . .
Bam. All done.
It's so simple! But not simple when I was actually on a step ladder craning my neck to get the pieces up, and trying to make sure it was all perfectly square. . .whilst holding an 8 foot piece in one hand and a nailgun in the other.
Incidentally, I asked the hubs. . .you know. . just out of curiosity sake, what kind of a pain it would be to add a ceiling medallion to the chandy, 'cause I think it could totally use a medallion 'n all. . .
In an extremely calm voice, he told me it was basically like removing the chandy entirely and putting it back up, so . . .yeah. No. Not happening.
There was something sinister about the calmness in his voice about it. I'm too scared to ask again.
