Good morning and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
I spent a good chunk of time this weekend working on my utility closet—specifically the argyle walls. Let me just say that painting argyle TAKES FOREVER!! There’s so much taping, painting, and then waiting for paint to dry, then taping some more, painting some more, and waiting for that paint to dry.
But it’s getting there. I got all of the diamonds painted, and now I’m working on the pinstripes.
I’m sure it looks like a big mess right now, but just remember that cabinets will be installed, and they will cover up most of the walls. I’m only painting the small portion of wall space that will show after the cabinets are installed.
But even though it’s taking forever, and I’m getting a bit tired of working on it, I have to admit that I love how it’s turning out. Every time I walk by the closet, I stop for a couple of seconds and just admire it.
There so much more to do, but at least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now.
And may I just point out to you how this top row of diamonds turned out almost perfectly, with the tips of the diamonds right at the ceiling?
I didn’t plan that. At all. That happened completely by accident. In fact, if I had tried to plan that, and had tried to figure out where I needed to start in order for the diamonds to end up perfectly spaced at the ceiling, I can guarantee you that I would have messed it up!!
So instead of even trying, I just started with level horizontal line that I placed in a randomly chosen place down here (that I knew would be below the top of the base cabinets)…
…and somehow it ended up working out perfectly. Now that’s what you call a happy accident!
Pressing on. I have another day of pinstriping ahead of me. I want to have these cabinets installed tomorrow!!
