Still painting ~

Well, what started out to be a granddaughter & Oma project, turned out to be just an Oma project today! My granddaughter and I completed the  first coat of paint in her room on Friday  . . . we were unable to paint yesterday, so we made plans to do the second coat and finish today . . . well, she ended up at a friends all day . . . I wanted to get this project done and over with so I have been painting all afternoon . . . by myself . . . . which at first was fine while I listened to pleasant music . . . but being that I am no "spring chicken" . . . I can feel the aches and pains all over! I will be glad to hang up my roller and paint brush for a while.

I am almost done with the exception of one spot I cannot get to because her bed is too close to the wall and I cannot move that thing by myself - she will be home shortly and together we will move the bed and then I can paint the one spot and then  . . . we will be done!  My kitchen was also painted over the weekend, that was finished today too. I have to say, I am a little tired of the paint smell but looking forward to getting things back to normal (whatever that might be). It's all looking pretty nice though.


  1. What a nice memory your granddaughter will have of the time you both painted her room together.

  2. Thank you, Betty, we sure will. Even though I ended up finishing by myself, we still had fun together and every time we look at those walls, it brings a smile to our faces!
