We last left off with the huge headboard still in the bedroom. A friend stopped by the other night and we were able to move it to the garage.
Alas, I had painted the room several years ago, but could not paint behind the headboard. This is now quite apparent.
I searched high and low and think I found the paint for that room. Looked like a match, right? (Amazing how artificial light dulls the color in the room. The paint color in the picture above is more realistic).
So I threw down some plastic and did a quick paint job. Uh-oh, looks too light.
I came back a couple of hours later, and voila!
I gave it a quick second coat and declared it a done deal.
Today, I took a day off from work and had Junk n Dump come by to haul away stuff. An old love seat, 2 old TVs, queen-size bed frame with drawers and headboard, old cans of paint, old fertilizer, plant food, decrepit sawhorses, and anything else I could dig out of the garage.
A quick check written and I almost have my garage back. At least enough so I can park the car in it.
So tonight, Halloween, I plan to clear out a few boxes in the bedroom. And after a thorough vacuum, hopefully move the bed into the bedroom. Novel concept, huh? Bed in the bedroom. I am thinking a bit of a sugar rush should make this a quick job.
Wish me luck!
