I have been a busy bee, working on lots of different projects at once. One space is in our kitchen, which has been sort of problematic, given that we have three kids and an uber-busy schedule. I am in dire need of a “command center” to keep track of where/when everyone needs to be at their respective locations.
One thing I think is going to help is the chalkboard wall that I added. It should at least be helpful in jotting down reminders or notes. It’s not a “wall” in the general sense of the word, more of a slice of a wall, but it’s already being put to good use.
Here’s where it began:
I have also started taking down the wallpaper in the half bathroom. Wallpaper removal is the devil’s handiwork I tell you. But, I’m feeling eternally grateful that I started my wallpaper removal exercise with a small room. If I had started in the dining room, I would be ready for a padded room by now.
Nevermind that I’m using vinegar and water to take this wallpaper down. So, I smell like I’ve been coloring Easter eggs. I started out trying to take it down by using fabric softener and water. I really wish that had been more effective. At least I would have smelled April Fresh.
But, I’m making progress.
It gets worse before it gets better, right?
So, plenty of things to keep me busy. Looking forward to sharing it all with you!
