Home Improvement… or Something Like That

On July 20, I got the boys’ closet cleaned out to get ready to install their new closet organizing system.

Oh, wait. Let me back up. I actually purchased the closet system LAST YEAR. That’s right. I got it in May 2007. It’s just taken me this long to begin the installation process. (I’m not going to mention how no one in my family is as excited about closet organization as I and is, therefore, not motivated much at all to prioritize cleaning out closets.)

OK. So back to the home improvement.

I cleaned out the closet last week. Then decided that before I install the closet organizer, I really need to paint the closet. This of course meant I had to decide paint colors, get the paint, patch all the holes in the wall, tape the edges, then paint.

So, this week, I got all of that done! Woohoo! Yippee!

Except that I ran out of paint. So, I have a kinda-sorta-painted-and-splotchy closet. And since I have to drive all the way to Belle Meade to get the type of paint that I want (Benjamin Moore Aura), it’s really quite a jaunt. And since I have three kids who are uber-fascinated with anything the least bit out of the ordinary (like, I don’t know, making the walls a new color), there’s no way in you-know-where that I would attempt any further work on this project until they are out of the house.

I really don’t know when I’ll get this done. It helps that I’m an extremely patient person and really do enjoy the process of it all. Considering the boys have one more week of preschool then don’t return until after Labor Day, I’m thinking it may be St. Patrick’s Day before the room is all finished. (By the way, I have grandiose creative ideas for their room. I’ll keep you posted how that goes and post pictures, of course.)

I’d love you to vote in my poll. When do YOU think I’ll get the boys’ room done?

Why does life have to be so complicated?
