The Lifestlye Blog of "HaM"
2 years ago, I started the process of painting my house. I picked the color below and we started to crank out the paint in our living room.
Please don’t judge the mess you see. Can you imagine what it looks like now with 2 kids??
Everything was going great!
We were doing so good and we ended the night with me painting right above our fireplace where the TV was. Well the TV was in the way and I didn’t want to move it that night so we stopped for the day and figured we would take the TV down and finish the next day. Well believe it or not, I took a pregnancy test and WHAM! I was a big fat POSITIVE and fast forward 2 years to now, I have a 10 month old baby to show and this lively picture of what I did RIGHT before I went to bed the night before the TV was to come down.
Yes. You see it correctly. I decided to paint AROUND the TV and thought it was funny and I would just fix it the next day. NOT SMART. Because I was pregnant, we decided to stop painting and we never bothered to hire painters to finish the job so that was TWO YEARS of watching TV with that paint being curved all crazy. People who visited us just got used to our story but I am pretty sure they were thinking “WTF is that???”
Well lo behold, we finally decided now is the time to fix it. Here’s another shot of it just in case you missed it. This was taken right before we were going to fix it.
And here is my awesome hubby fixing the TWO year problem.
Yay! It’s finally done! I’ll give you an updated picture soon along with the other projects we are working on. There’s a lot brewing in this household and it isn’t a baby! Looking forward to sharing the cool stuff we have updated in our house but of course, it takes TIME to complete.
What do you think of my crazy story?? Would you keep it that way for 2 years?? I agree, I don’t know how that did not bother me but I guess I had a lot of other things on my mind…like making a baby for 10 months and then taking care of it. Oh yes, that was it. 🙂
