Prime Procrastination

One of the things I'm really good at is procrastination. So with one week before school starts, I am sanding, priming, and going to paint the front door. It was in bad shape! The prairie weather takes its toll on all kinds of things. If it's not the rain, sun, wind, or a blizzard, it will be something else.
Two coats of primer and ready for a paint job. I had a color in mind but I am REALLY liking this white.
It looked nice and I had paint on the roller, so I thought I'd make the closet door match.
Then the outside made the inside scream, "Paint me, too!" So I started on the inside of the door. (I live in a magical kingdom where everything speaks its mind~as I'm losing mine).
Next, the divider wanted some attention. And I have to climb on the ladder and prime the trim at the top. Because I'm short, I couldn't see it when looking up, thinking "no one else will see it".
WRONG. Walk out four feet and there it is--mocking me! Paint me! Paint me!

Next, I think I hear the walls saying, "Don't forget us!" Am I crazy?! Then it will be the woodwork. ♥♫

Did you know it is difficult to paint with bifocals? I need upside down glasses for some of these nooks and crannies.

Hi - and thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment - I love meeting new bloggers and am so happy when they find something that interests them in one of my posts! Your painting project sounds like it might never end - but I know what you mean. Once you begin painting one thing, everything else cries out for the same attention!! Nevertheless, it's turning out beautifully! My cousin Karen lives out in Colorado. She has a great little blog called Over the Backyard Fence! Ciao, bella!

Great post!
From my experience, it's not only hard to paint with bifocals, it's hard to paint with 50+ year old eyes. I have to take my glasses off and get my face about 2 inches away from the nooks and crannies to see if I covered everything.

Hi Marilyn,

Ooooh, the old "one project leads to another" trick that our houses always seem to play on us! Been there, done that! Many times. :) Looking good 'tho!

Thanks for stopping by to visit me (and becoming a follower). I deeply appreciate it. I'll be back to check on your painting progress.
