The four baskets were labeled: clean, sew, wash and spot (we are both clumsy and have dogs so spot remover is a MUST in our home!).
I love potato salad and my family has the best recipe EVER. During the warmer months, potato salad is a perfect side dish to your family meals and friendly BBQs. Make sure you introduce this tasty recipe into your meal rotation…
Sometimes songs just get stuck in your head and you cannot shake it (reference intended)!
This song is so AMAZING! I can’t get it off repeat! If you aren’t a Florence + the Machine fan, you should be… I mean really— she’s crazy good!
Without further ado, Shake it Out!
What are you listening to right now? Tell me… I need to get off this kick… or maybe I don’t. 🙂
Don’t you love Spring? I love adding pieces to my wardrobe especially when bright colors are involved (even though it scares me sometimes!). I am so excited for my most recent Spring purchases… so excited that I wanted to share the pieces with y’all!
As you can see, I’m having a great time shopping for Spring. Have you started sprucing up your wardrobe yet? If so, what’s the most exciting thing you’ve added to your Spring collection?
2. We had to buy paint brushes in efforts to deal with the trim and ceiling. We used a split foam roller brush for the ceiling in efforts to help avoid crumbling (yes, we have textured ceilings and NO it is not coming down! We did that in the bedroom once and the hubby about killed me!)
3. After the paint and brushes had been selected we started slappin’ paint. That’s the expression that J uses but really we understand that there is more to it, right?!? Start at the ceiling and trim it out first.
4. Once the ceiling has been trimmed out then with your foam roller (if dealing with a textured ceiling) paint the ceiling but only move your brush in one direction. With textured ceilings you can make long paint strokes but you don’t want to have your brush going back and forth as it can cause some of the drywall to fall off. (NOT A GOOD TIME!)
5. After the ceiling is in good shape, you can start on the walls. Again, you want to trim it out first and be very careful in order not to get color on your freshly painted ceiling.
6. After you’ve trimmed out your walls and painted them, we changed paint colors and worked on the trim. The baseboards and the doors. ( I do a good job on doors but not so much on the trim!)
7. Make sure you touch up as necessary and look for any spots that you may have missed. Some times depending on paint color or previous wall color, you’ll need to repeat this process to get a thicker coat of paint.
8. Finally, you’ve reached the end of this process and are ready for a break!
Since I’m not technical in nature I did want to direct those technical folks to a website has some excellent painting tips and tricks. TLC has a really good article about painting and you can find it here or this tips for novices article from BHG is great too check it out here.
