So, Blondie’s room is primed. Well, pretty much. Not too happy with the primer my paint store sold me. The top green color really did not fully get covered. I got a second coat on almost everything, but then, I ran out. Very frustrating. This is where we started.

Bad Primer and a Blown Hose

The paper and border is off, repairs made, holes filled.

Every part of me is covered in paint. Except for my hair. I finally am smart enough to cover my hair with a bandana.

I was ready to prime last week…until, there was a loud commotion and call for lots of towels. Never good.

Turns out the hose that was connected to the slop sink in the basement blew out and the basement was covered in water. Fabulous.

And, the result is the laminate floors are curled and will need to be replaced in one whole section in the basement.

The good news, if it had been discovered ten minutes later, it would have been much worse - furniture would have been ruined, the bar would have been damaged. The other good news is that we have more flooring (not sure yet if it is enough) and until our contractor is ready, it is fine for now.

So, a few tidbits of what is coming for Blondie’s room:
