This is the color of my wall. I really don’t like it. I need help people! I am thinking of using a feather duster to add lighter colors. What colors should I use or does anyone have a better idea or technique? I did get the nasty carpet pulled up and am trying to come up with a cheap floor covering. Again, any ideas?I had asked my boys to help me pull up the carpet but they were busy. Keep in mind that I never do any of this myself. I start the project and then when they come to help I mysterious disappear until they are done. They are on to me.
I decided to pull the carpet myself. How hard could it be, right? I had about a foot pulled up when I encountered my first problem. I needed to cut the carpet at the closet. I asked my son if we had a box knife. Look in the toolbox, he says. I do know where the tool box is but no knife to be found. After looking around I finally came up with something. As I started cutting, which was easy peesy, the handle broke off. Well crap! How am I going to explain this ? I contemplated hiding it but my son had, come back inside and had seen it. He would either tell his dad or use it to blackmail me, so I decided to come clean and tell my husband that I broke his knife thingy.
My husband didn’t seem to upset because he didn’t swear when he saw it. He made himself scarce when he saw what I was doing. My son wasn’t quick enough. He and his friends were elected to help me finish the carpet. We got it pulled up and they hauled it outside.
I want to do a beach theme in this room. When I went to hobby lobby a week ago with my mom, we were looking at beachy things. We saw a couple cute things but I have this thing about bringing anything else home that has to be dusted. So really maybe a cute lamp and some things for the wall. Pinterest here I come.
