This week’s project is painting the basement hall – which includes a lot of woodwork (five door frames – including one very large closet door area and the baseboards), inside the game closet, and some wall area.  Don’s comment that the hall would be easier than a bedroom because it has so much less woodwork was way off base (board).  Note the five door frames previously mentioned.

And before I could even start the sanding, priming, painting process, I had to deal with the closet contents.

Do we really need all these puzzles?

Outdated, but valuable, family history

So many boxes of Legos

Does this mess make me happy?

Actually, not at all.

But the thought of the finished project, complete with the clean and organized closet creates excitement and enough enthusiasm to keep me motivated.

Besides, Mark and Kate have planned a quick Greeley getaway.  We have to have access to the hall and bedroom . . .

  1. Oh my, just seeing all that molding white makes a huge difference!!! It will look really good when you’re done! And I can help while I’m there… Charlie takes pretty good naps so we’ll have some time if you want to tackle a project!

  2. Oh my goodness! The closet looks so different already and I can only see a small portion of it. You continue to amaze me with your projects but how nice to have your house updated. I’m excited to see the finished product. Keep up the great work!

  3. The answer is “YES” you do need all those puzzles. I believe they all look new to me, which means they at least need to stay around til reunion time (when the puzzliers reunite forces).

    And, by the way, I love that you and Don keep on tackling the home makeover projects. You two are machines!!
