Ohhhh Kaaaay. So.
I really really really wanted to hop on here today and be all like 'hey you guys! Check out all the amazing progress I made on our half-bath this weekend!!!' but no. I had this amazing plan, I really did, but...well...it didn't work.
Here is the deal. I wanted to do a big ol' reveal and shock you all, but this is a real life blog...and sometimes that just doesn't happen. So...here is a peek into how the half bath is not progressing...
Ever since I saw the reading room over at the Lettered Cottage, I knew that at some point I wanted to try doing stripes in a room. I had thought that I would do them in one of the boys rooms, but since their ceilings are so low, I don't think it will work. I then decided that our half bath would be a perfect place to do some stripes. I measured and remeasured, gathered up all of my supplies, and started working.
About an hour later (and some choice words for the tape), I had created Willy Wonka's bathroom...
...I then put on a first coat of my bright white paint for a subtle stripe, and there was my problem.
My striped were SO subtle, that they aren't even there! How...neat. I wish I could say I totally rallied at that point and figured it out, but no. I packed everything up, poured myself a big ol' glass of wine, and pouted on the sofa for the rest of the night.
How mature am I?
Thanks to my sweet pep-talkin' hubs, I do finally have a plan, I am going to go back for another attack tonight, but I thought maybe you guys should see that sometimes(usually) my plans don't go off seamlessly. Luke's birthday party is in two weeks, and I would like to have this mostly finished by then...wish me luck!
Have you ever had a project just NOT go the way you were hoping?
P.S. Jack told me he likes the green stripes and wants it to stay that way!
