i am still alive!

i have been a little grumpy lately, cause i have nothing i can do.
i can't work cause my studio is all wrapped up in plastic.
and i haven't had use of my car for a while (troubles)
so i have been sorta stuck here.



we got to work.
the boys went out this morning and bought lots of wood.
they built this:

cubbies before stain and up.

they took it down again so i could stain it.
this is the first coat. so it still needs another coat of stain and 2 coats of varnish...


i think it's fantastic!!! there will be a workbench under it for woodworking stuffs (so i had better get better at it!)

they also put my door to the laundry room on:


that i had to paint. that doorknob (i hope) is only temporary. i want to get one of those dark brown-bronzey ones...

i also got a nice windowsill....eventually we will get new windows there, so the wood will go all the way back to the window, but there is no sense in doing that now with those stupid old windows...


this is the fun stuff! it's so exciting to see it all coming together.
tomorrow, we are supposed to pick up cupboards and i'll be getting a sink! :D
i am a happy painter-girl :D

Okay, the shade of green I am turning is a lovely emerald. A little like the Wicked Witch of the East. I will hobble back to my corner of the bedroom and shove the unfolded laundry out of the way so I can work. :) And even though I am emerald green, I am very happy for you! So cool!!! xo Pam
