Fun Monday Pictures

I could have taken a bunch more pictures but it was raining and , well, I didn't want to melt or anything! This first one is of the closet doors in my daughters room. This used to be my son's room. About 3 years ago. The walls got painted but these doors still scream 10 year old boy. What can you do? Ahhh... the bookcase in my bedroom. Pitiful.
This here is a view of the rain from our screened in porch. Isn't it beautiful. We went all out and bought the invisible screen. It is amazing. Even the dogs and cats don't see it and can walk right through it.
Next are the French doors we put in 5+ years ago. We keep meaning to get the brick redone around it...

Ooh, this is a special view of the ceiling in the porch and the door to the kitchen. Just add that to the needs brick list.
Hmm... very dark. Remember the rain? I guess I should turn the light on. That bench at the table is temporary. For about 5 years!
Boy, better be careful going down the back steps of death!
The ceiling fans keep it lovely and cool out on the screened porch.
Okay, I feel like this is a slam against my husband because these are all things he built with only the help of the children. I would help but I am worse help than the children so they just put me on the cooking assignment while they work. Sometimes I remember to do that. My husband is the hardest working person that I know and if he had a spare moment he would work on any of these jobs I have forced him to start even though he has no time to do them. He just loves me that much. AWWW, ain't love grand? So I have ZERO complaints about these jobs being undone. We are both too cheap to hire any of this work out.
Soon we are going to start remodelling the kids bathroom. We need another project to keep us busy. We were thinking that maybe we would start Christmas Eve, since we won't have anything else going on!HaHa.
Thanks for this FUN MONDAY assignment. I have had a fun, shame filled morning!

Oh, I am all too familiar with the dreaded disease unfinishedprojectitis. My problem is I start demolishing something and then I get tired and overwhelmed by the work so I whine and beg until my husband finishes the mess I started. Currently it's the dining room walls that I'm stripping the wallpaper...but I don't want to finish.

BTW, I love that temporary bench, I think it looks very sweet with your awesome ladder backs.

Lots to be done huh? At least hubby will be lending a hand. I'm the handy man around our house. So that leaves me with only myself to blame.

and that really sucks.

Bless your heart! Maybe yall can get it finished soon then sit back and relax, but if anything like mine family once you get something done the way you want it something else needs done or something else breaks.
Nice to meet ya!

Hi Cynthia, your projects are sure oilin' up there.... time for a nap.

Oh, it looks so pretty where you are. If it takes too long to get your projects done you can always sit out on that great porch.

I'm trying to put a positive spin on here!

Oh, there's no shame. And, way to go getting your hub to actually begin all of this. Mine just ignores it on his way to the media room/dungeon.

Robinella said...

We don't like to hire out either. It takes more time but it's worth the savings!

Sorry but I can't help laughing at your explanation of the screened porch the cats and dogs walk through LOL
