I’m convinced when we are done with this house, there won’t be a single flat surface that hasn’t been touched by a paint brush! This past weekend, Dr. J was out of town, so I spent some alone time painting window sills, which, sadly, wasn’t as “sill-y” as I hoped it would be! To give you some idea of just how nasty our window sills are, here is a before picture to show you just how bad they are (and pretty much all of them look like this):
And just to cut this short and go spend time with the hubs…..here’s what a quick paint job will get you!
Clean, crisp, super-duper white! I know it’s something really small, but our house is a blank slate filled with hundreds of small little problems like these. Add them all up and they really do start to make a house feel “dowdy”. Fixing just a few has made our space feel that much cleaner, crisper, newer, etc. And while I didn’t paint *all* of the window sills in the house, I did manage to get through five total, which isn’t bad for a quick Sunday afternoon project!
Dr. J and I are really wrestling with what to do around the house this weekend now that we are both home and *some*body is anxious to use the Christmas present his wife bought for him…..hrmmm…..for a sneak peek, click here. I think some molding projects might be in our futures!!!
