Hello all my fellow design freaks out there!
Let’s see, how to sum up week 5 in a few words?? Hmm… Sickness, comes to mind. As does, Halloween costumes. Needless to say with the whole family feeling terrible (can I double bold and highlight terrible – it sucked, big time) and with feral trick-or-treaters breathing down my neck, I didn’t get as much done as I was hoping for.
Aren’t minions supposed to be helpers? I don’t think mine got the message! They’re more like monkey-minions, if you ask me!!
But hey, hey, hey check out The Mother! She’s all there, baby! Right up to the ceiling!!
Oh la, la that ladder is the piece de resistance! It used to be in a book store, which I think is the coolest!
And you can see that we had to carefully remove the existing crown moulding to move it forward about 16 inches. For that little job, I used my Dremel with the multitool, #561. Just in case you’re looking to do something similar! Lucky me, that the moulding came out in one piece!! PHEW!
Now I’ve relegated myself to patching and then sanding. See what I’m dealing with?
Because I was taking apart pieces that were already put together, I have to fix the areas that the crazy, strong, super glue ripped off.
Once she’s all nice and painted, you won’t see any of this gnarliness.
Around Monday, when I was finally able to successfully move my legs, I got 3 chairs painted and then finished up 3 more yesterday. Of course, they’re drying in my garage so although I don’t want to tease… well, I guess in this case, I must! I will just say that the color is muy perfecto! Only took like, forever!
So, I’m going to go ALL IN for the grand finale!
Will everything be done? Only time will tell!!
Wish me luck and please check out the other amazing bloggers also linking in to the challenge! And thank you again to Linda for letting me crash your party!
Happy Halloween to you all!!
And Happy Creating! Jessica
