Ok, so it's Wednesday Again,,,,

Where has the week gone?

Well it seems that my work is not focused on crafting this week. My son Josh and I decided to remodel his bedroom. There was old and I mean old, 1970's blue shag carpet in his bedroom. So we ripped that out down to the hardwood floors. We have been painting up a storm. It seems that it will never end.

I remember as a child that room being blue with that old blue shag carpet. I think it was past time to give the room a makeover.

I do not know what we will do with the floors. When they remodeled for my Aunt and Uncle they didnt care what got on the floor. There is paint and plaster. So I know it is gonna have to be sanded. So if we are gonna sand, then we might as well leave the floor wood and just stain and varnish rather than paint it and put a topcoat on it. I think that is what we will do.

So all the carpet is out, paint is just about done, just a small area that needs to be painted. I think part of the builtins we will take out. As Josh doesnt use them. So many decisions to be made..

Josh's room is a total wreck. I hope to have it all back together by the end of the week. I HOPE!!!

I love to do projects, I just hate the mess that the cause! LOL I don't do too well in disaster!

Things seem to be progressing and you know pretty much what you want to do. It's just the matter of doing it!

Good luck! Hope it goes fast and painless!
