I’m on vacation this week, or as some might call it, a staycation. I have a few projects to get done around the house, things I can do without spending money or shopping. I have about 10 outlets that need replacing, as they won’t hold a plug. I have all the stuff in the grage to do this task, and I have for about 2 years now. I even have the black one that goes on my fireplace, nicely matching the slate tile.
What I would really like to do is finish up a few painting projects. I can’t do this without buying paint, and I can’t buy paint, as that would be retail shopping. The only room that really needs painting badly is my master bath. It’s been 80% painted for the entire 4 years I’ve been in the house. The water closet room still has the original mid 90’s southwest style wallpaper and border with popcorn ceilings. Now I have paint, lots of paint, but not enough of any one color to do a room. My paint is leftovers from home projects, church projects, oops paint, hand-me-down paint… you get the picture. I also have a wall to paint in the upstairs loft room. I guess I’ll just have to get creative! I have enough red paint to paint the town red, but not enough other colors to do what I would like to in the house. I’ll keep you posted. 🙂
