2 - This looks like nothing, but it prevents the bathroom from being a live nude show for the neighbors. Carol and I put that up while MFD and my Dad were out at the hardware store and getting breakfast.
3 - My Dad, Carol, and I painted the trim on the second floor. Painting trim sucks.
4 - After MFD fixed the powder room sink and changed the supply lines/hooked up the garbage disposal in the kitchen sink, he put bead board up in the vestibule. I forgot to include the photo Carol took of him reattaching kitchen cabinets to the wall and spraying KILZ INSIDE while we sat on the couch and were simultaneously like WTF/laughing
5 - Dark pic, but some of my mermaids are up! Waiting on two more to arrive.
6 - My poor dad got up on the bunk beds to hang things over them and since the ceiling is low and he's tall, had a hard time getting down. Of course I paused my laughter to grab his phone and take photos since mine was downstairs. We also painted some trim on the third floor and finished hanging stuff up there.
7 - This house is 116 years old. There are no closets in most rooms. If you are in this situation or need hanging storage in your laundry room, this will be the best $6.93 you've ever spent.
8 - I can use caulk now. Big fixer. Much home improvement. Not usually in nail holes but I just needed a dab.
9 - My Dad and Carol nixed the rusted out chairs on the porch and gifted us with four new ones (two stacked in back to keep away from the railing/elements) that they picked up while we were out.
We scrubbed the paint and funk off of ourselves and sped out to celebrate Shawn & Maggie's wedding next to Scottish Rite in Collingswood. Everyone looked fabulous, the band was great, there were mini desserts (I love mini food), the photo booth was a hit as always, and there was a shitload of mummery, which was very fitting for this union.
Sherwin Williams Comical Coral (SW6876) and bead board. Naturally I looked like a hobo when I went to Sherwin Williams. They expect that from me when I walk in. I still have some more painting work to do in there and MFD will install shallow shelves in April, but it's good enough for now.
This weekend was definitely a back breaker and I'm heading back to the shore tonight to finish cleaning but am so happy with the progress this weekend. It all had to get done, and it did. So grateful to MFD, my Dad, and Carol for not giving me too much shit about being The Boss because sometimes working conditions can get hairy. Seriously though, it takes a village and my village is awesome.
Birthday Eve! Love you long time.
