Well! What can I say?? I missed last week. I kept thinking I’d get a little more done, but I don’t think I did! Then I had to go to the ER last Sunday night, and on the way I ran into a deer! My car was still drivable so we got to the ER without any delay. My son has been sick for almost all of the last two weeks, but seems to be getting better now. He needed a breathing treatment and they did a chest x-ray and checked to see if he had the flu. So he didn’t have pneumonia or the flu – just bronchitis. Now he has a nebulizer.
EXCUSES! EXCUSES! I think this pantry project was just a little too ambitious for me (and my husband!) to do in real time. I’ll know better next time! Thanks again to Linda for all her hard work at calling it home.
Here’s the link to all the other bloggers’ ORC reveals:
I wonder if I’ve made any progress. I have made some decisions if that counts! I decided to use a huge shelf that was hanging in the kitchen for the microwave. My original plan was to use a metal shelf, but I couldn’t find the right size. My husband took down the shelf. I think he really likes my idea to put it in the pantry because he hated that shelf!
I hope we can get a lot done this Saturday. We’re both off so that should help!!
Now I’m going to see what’s happening with the other bloggers after I link up here:
I actually have some “during” pictures. I started to peel off the wallpaper in the half bath. The top half came off pretty easily. My husband had to use the steamer on the bottom half. Before he got too far, he asked me what I was going to do with the walls. Then I remembered I wanted to put up beadboard. I had forgotten all about that! So he decided we didn’t need to take off the wallpaper. I thought maybe taking off the wallpaper was the right thing to do, but he doesn’t think this is necessary. Nothing seems moldy so I guess that’s okay. I want wooden shelves and brackets. The beadboard will be painted white and the shelves and brackets will be painted yellow.
I wish I had room for another sink, but I don’t. I want to put the microwave in the pantry where the sink is. I need more counter space in the kitchen. Before and during pictures are supposed to be bad, right?! These are absolutely terrible. (I really need to find my camera charger!)
