You know you're in trouble when...
And it was with that I decided to take a few weeks off from working on the house. Now, rest assured dear readers, I am not succombing to the dreaded "remodel burnout" whose symptoms include unfinished products, general apathy toward design choices, and delusions of how nice a newly-built tract home would be.
On that note, let me talk about my latest half-finished project:
It's not horrible. And since this isn't even my own bathroom I haven't been too concerned about it. But I've got a roommate moving in so I thought I better change it now when the bathroom isn't really used. Here's where I am now...
It's getting there. I've got a new light on order.
I screwed up...
I admit it, occasionally, I am wrong about something. Some of you may remember my unique paint color for my office. It's pictured below:
I have tried and tried for the last two months to convince myself that I like it. But, it's just a little too "dirty" looking for me. So much work went into painting it (3 coats in most spots, 4 in some) that I tried to pragmatically enjoy the fruits of no labor. Apparently my pragmatism has its limits and no amount of mental willpower can allow me to embrace "crap brown." New color? I'm thinking orange. No....seriously.
