I had an interesting weekend. On Friday morning, I woke up and tried to begin my normal routine–checking e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, keeping tabs on various projects for clients, blogging, etc. But instead of accomplishing all of those things, something terrible happened. I DIDN’T HAVE INTERNET!! After frantically calling my internet provider repeatedly, being transferred from one department to another, talking to several phone technicians, it was finally determined that nothing could be done right then, and a technician would have to come to my home to fix the problem. The earliest appointment? Sunday. Yes, it was Friday morning, and I would have to wait until SUNDAY!!! Oh dear.
After dealing with the shock, the panic, the crying, the shaking, the tremors, the cold sweats, the pacing the floor back and forth, back and forth (oh…I’m joking…there were no tremors), I finally realized that this would be a good opportunity for me to get away from the computer and get more work done on my cabinets. Again, I didn’t get nearly as much done as I thought I would (I kid you not. In my mind, I think I’m super woman. Reality is a cold-hearted witch.) But here’s my progress…
Remember, this is what I started with:
So after this:
And a little of this:
Followed by this:
A few beads of this:
And two coats of this:
This is the status of the project as of right now:
And yes, they are leaning up against my primed, unpainted wainscoting. That project is on the list, too.
Oh, and one of the new doors is stuck in there, playing “Where’s Waldo”. Can you tell which one? Of course you can. But just humor me and let me point it out to you:
It’s not a perfect match, but once they all have a couple of coats of paint on them, I think they’ll look pretty darn similar! In fact, the passive observer may not even notice a difference.
So, that’s my weekend. How was yours?
