The "Kill Me, Now" Phase of a Project...

...



Spending a beautiful Saturday with one's body wedged under a bathtub, scraping away disgusting old paint can be a slog. Likewise, scraping paint from the wall behind the toilet

Robb and I have scraped off two particularly revolting layers of peeling pink paint, as well as extremely tenacious brick red and dark brown.  The trick is to keep the final tan layer as intact as possible, because directly under that is the delicate plaster "tile" which is easily damaged.

This is dirty, unpleasant work.  We're trying to keep a good attitude, and reminding ourselves how much better things will look when we're done. Trying, but not always succeeding.

You don't know how much inspiration you give me on this series of posts! I seem to live in the "kill me now" phase a lot! Just keep plugging away,,,it will evolve!

I'm intimately familiar with this phase of a project. Keep on chugging, chin up, and play some tunes! Soon, this will all be a memory and you'll have a beautiful bathroom.
