Shhhh … I have snuck up here to my computer to do a quick post. I started out the day planning to paint my bathroom cabinet. It is kind of a quick fix, as I really just need a whole new vanity. It is shabby in a not so chic way. But, with Thanksgiving coming and having company for dinner Thursday, I thought I’d do a quick paint job and mini-makeover of the bathroom. Nothing like company coming to get me in the mood to do a project! While most of you are thinking about your turkeys, I’m thinking about a bathroom makeover! Here’s why:
But here is the funny part! I hate painting. No, hate is not a strong enough word. I DESPISE painting. So I have a little system for how to get things done. First I go buy the paint, then I plead with my husband for just a little bit of help with prep work. Once he is in his grubbies and under way with sanding, I slip upstairs and start blogging! Pretty soon he realizes I am not doing the project, HE IS! Love that. Works like a charm.
I’ve been tagged to play a couple of games! And since it is Thanksgiving week for those of us in the states, we might as well play and be merry don’t you think? I think so. Although I will probably move quickly on to another post because I have so much to get to! I was tagged by My Melange for this first one which I am going to call Four Things I’d Rather Do Than Paint My Bathroom Cabinet. Here we go, five questions, four answers each:
Four jobs I have had:
Editorial assistant, publishing company
Scrapbook consultant (my attempt at being crafty)
Marketing, publishing company
Interior design consultant (the real me!)
Four places I have lived:
about 9 houses in Oregon
Four places I’ve been on holiday (I’m cheating a bit here):
Paris, Germany, England, Venice
New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida
California, Hawaii, Washington, Idaho
Four Favorite Foods (how can I choose only four, I have to cheat a little bit)
Mexican food followed by Flan
Coffee & Chocolate chip cookies with walnuts
Salmon with mashed potatoes and vegetables
Lasagna and garlic bread
Four Places I’d Rather Be (only four? this game is hard for me!)
I’ll have to postpone (again!) one of the games where I am supposed to show a picture of myself and talk about it, but I don’t have a working scanner so for now, I’m off the hook on that one! Sorry, I’ll get back to it!
For now, here are the four I am tagging for the Four Things game:
Oh, no! Hubby is looking for me! Gotta wrap this up and look busy with some other house project so he won’t ask me to work on the painting… TTFN!
