Revere Me, for I Am Awesome


Hey, anyone remember this mess? Well, behold the power and might of Kristin and the wonderful changes she has wrought.

That corner of the window you can see is the same one I took a picture of earlier. Notice: no black stain, no massive crack, no nastiness of any sort. I amaze myself.

Also notice the bamboo shade on the window ($19.99 on sale at JCPenney!) and how it perfectly coordinates with the hardwood floor. How did I get this good?

We just won't remark on the fact that it took me over a week from start to finish to paint a room the size of your average bathroom. Nor will we discuss how I was literally dripping sweat (mmm, tasty!) yesterday as I cleaned up my many little paint smears and spills off the floor.

No, we'll just focus on how much I totally rule. And how pretty our bedroom is now. Yay for me!

Aaaand, end of ego trip. Good bye.

If you've got a bed that fits two people in there, then your idea of the "average bathroom" is a bit more generous than mine.

My wife and I like to watch those shows about people moving up to better houses, and I'm always amazed when people walk into huge two-sink bathrooms with whirlpool tubs and walk-in showers and complain that, "Ooh, it's so tiny, how do they live like this?" (Was that all one sentence? Good grief.)

Wow, beautiful room! You ARE awesome.

NICE!
Yes, I once decided to paint our teensy 2nd floor bathroom "real quick" one weekend. Even though the room is roughly the size of a checkerboard, it took an entire week, involved three people, and OF COURSE ended up being the most miserably hot week of the summer.

wanna paint my bathroom? i kid, i kid...

Okay, fine Drew, so it's a LITTLE bigger than the average bathroom. We'll say it's about the size of a walk-in closet, and in fact it was a dressing room attached to the master suite at one time. We sleep there because it's so small we can heat it with a space heater in winter. Otherwise, there's no heat upstairs.

And Krysta? HELL NO. I hate painting and will not be hiring myself out anytime soon. Although, if you're willing to pay for my plane ticket to California, I might be persuaded to take a little vacation, even if it involves painting.
