I can attest to that! I’m making progress in my workshop.
But it’s looking a lot like it did before I started the project.
It just has cabinets now. I installed some crown moulding this week. I like the crown but I wanted to hide all the cleats and ceiling and back wall.
So I painted the insides dark grey with some paint I bought in the “oops” stock at HD. I didn’t have enough and ran out here!
So I took 3 cans of all different colors that I had laying around and mixed up my own that matched well enough. I had to do this 2 more times because I never made enough to completely finish the entire wall of cabinets!
Then yesterday I had a little fender bender dropping Maddie off at school which made me all shaky and unproductive for the whole morning. (No one was hurt – thank goodness!)
Then the “bug guy” came out to look at some ants and a big ant nest (right next to a BIG OLD TREE) right by our house and confirmed that they are indeed Carpenter ants and the tree is infested. Yeah!
I found a whole lot of this in the yard before I found the tree. I guess carpenter ants are everywhere ’round these parts.
When I finally got back to work yesterday, I finished painting the cabinets and touched up my countertop with some black wax. (Why I love distressed countertops: Every ding just makes it look more “vintage”.)
Which brings us to this point.
I hope to finish building today.
I just have to install some pegboard (which also requires removing the outlets and installing new junction boxes…and on and on) and then get all this crap back IN the cabinets in an organized fashion.
Oh, and it’s the Hunger Games premier tonight at Midnight (Maddie is TOO crazed about this movie to NOT see it (she’s read the series about 10 times). I’m pretty sure I’ll be asleep before we even reach the theatre but I’m “participating” for HER sake. ‘Cause she’s SUPER DUPER excited about it!
So, I’m pretty sure tomorrow will be unproductive too as I’ll be sleeping until noon. SO I BETTER FINISH THIS PUPPY TODAY! Anyone else planning an unproductive day tomorrow due to HUNGER GAMES MADNESS?
