Definitely the best way to describe this weekend. Saturday morning my plan was to begin painting the desk/bar area. I'd bought everything. Or so I thought. Turns out the roller attachment thingy we have isn't the right size for the rollers I bought. These were special foam rollers made for cabinets. I didn't have time to go to back to Lowe's & come home & start painting so I just blew it off. My parents came over & my daddy helped Dean install the faucet & do everything they had to do with the plumbing. We finally have water in the kitchen again. YAY!!! You really don't realize how much you miss something until you don't have it. Here's the faucet installed.
Saturday afternoon I went to Emily's birthday party. Em's mom is my friend Wendy. She's 2 today. Em, not her mom. Happy Birthday Emily!! Her party was at a place that has all the bouncy things. She looked like she had a blast!
After the party it was off to Lowe's. I got a roller attachment thingy & bought some face plates for all the electrical outlets in the kitchen. I don't think I like the plates either. I want something to blend in & I'm having a hard time. There were some that had a stone like texture to them that I loved but they were only switch plate covers. Very frustrating. I've scoured the internet too but it's really hard to determine a color from the computer. Any advice?? I bought almond color but they I'm not sure about them.
Once I made it home I used a deglazer on the cabinets in the desk area so they'd be ready to go Sunday morning. We went to Mass & grocery shopping & then I went for a run. Day 1, week 7 of C25K! Once I got home I took my socks & shoes off & got directly in the pool. I was really hot. The pool was fairly cold at 81 degrees. I figured it was warmer than an ice bath that a lot of runners do after a run. Anywho, it cooled me off so I was ready to paint. All ready, until it was time to put the roller on the attachment thingy. Wrong attachment, it wouldn't work. UGH!!! WHY???? I decided to take a big ol chance & go to Walmart instead of Lowe's to see if they had what I needed because it's more convenient. Thankfully, I was rewarded with a basically free from aggravation trip & they had the proper equipment. Back home & I got to work. I don't have pics because I'm not finished but I don't have a whole lot left. Everything that I could paint with the roller is painted with a couple of coats including the inside of the cabinets. Next up will be the areas that are too small for the roller. Not sure when that will get done. I'm hoping for Wednesday because I plan to run that morning so I'll go straight home from work. I would love to get the island painted next weekend. We'll see.
While I was painting some friends stopped by for a few minutes to see the new counters.
Dean is feeling better but he's definitely not 100% yet. He went back to work today. Thanks for all of the well wishes!
