Dry Erase Paint

Yea, let's just say that doesn't work too hot.
Or doesn't work at all.
So today I'm painting the big white area of what was supposed to be dry erase wall up. Or trying to.
Maybe I'm write Rustoleum a little letter, yup think I might do that.

Little Man's Room

We just have two things to do with his room finish the trim around the dry erase paint on the wall and eventually pull up the carpet and put down laminate or hardwood flooring. The later won't be for a while though. The paint has set up for the recommended time now, so I can paint the trim and hubs can hang it then I will tell little man what that big white spot on his wall is for! LOL

In the meantime

While I'm trying to paint little man's room there is 6 yards of mulch in the driveway. Oh and yeah I forgot to mention the privacy fence supplies that Menards is dropping off next the same driveway.

And I did find primer.
In a closet.
In the back.

My brother rocks!

My brother was taught by my dad, and his shop teacher of course, how to do wood working. My brother honed these skills himself. He honed a lot of skills himself, like how to be a gun smith. Anyway, he is awesome! He is making me a built-in for the living room!

He just rocks!

There comes a time

When you ask you really need primer? Really? If you forgot you really need?

The Little One's Room

Well we started peeling the wallpaper off of DS' room. It's the smallest room we've done yet. We thought it'd be the easiest, boy were we wrong. Once we got the wallpaper off we saw all the cracks in the plaster. Hubs has not pleased! So now that all the cracks have hopefully been repaired I can start to paint!
Lucky me!
And next week we have lots and lots of fencing being delivered because we adopted our new basset hound on Sunday. So that took a little chunk out of tax return, but it will be worth it!
Summer...oh sorry road construction season is almost here!

Well we messed this one up

So we are looking at our lovely little bathroom, with it's odd little shape. It's the only bathroom in the house and it's located on the second floor.
When we moved here we took out the pedestal sink, yes blasphemy I know! But I did have reasons! We have three children, so I wanted a double sink so at least I could get ready in the morning on they could brush their teeth. We also had to put in a shower as the P.O. only had a jacuzzi tub from 1982 in there. So we had an opening of 48 1/2 inches for a countertop sink and cabinet, which we custom ordered and installed.
Now we want to beadboard on top of the cedar carsiding to make it look more like a bathroom. The problem is then the sink a) wouldn't fit or b) the beadboard would overlap on top of the sinktop.
Yeah we didn't think that one through.

Hot Dang!

We have new flooring new furniture and I'm pooped!
The furniture got here before we got the flooring in, but oh well.
I love it! Now we just need the quarter round and we are good to go!
Here are some pics.

Our sofa is gone...

But hopefully we can get the new floor installed in the living since hubs sold the sofa. We currently are sitting on saucer chairs and the 4 yr old asks, where is the new couch at momma? It's coming dear. But when? When they can deliver it dear. But when? It will be a while. So in that while would be the PERFECT time to get the floor down in the living room....don't you agree?
Let's see if hubs agrees....

The Holidays Are Over

Thank goodness.
My dad had a heart attack shortly before Christmas. Things got really complicated. So now, that the kids have gotten their visit from Santa, we can pack up the decorations, maybe we can our life back on a somewhat normal track.
