I have not been happy with the baseboard in the front and dining rooms. We had continued the color from the family room throughout, but it just jumped out at me and screamed "I'M HEERE!" That is not the function of baseboard. It is supposed to be quiet and just lie there not drawing attention to itself.
I have spent twos days taping the walls and hardwood floor, repainting the baseboard the color green color of the columns and then repainting them due to the white showing through the first coat.
|note: white baseboard next between door and hall! Yuck!|
Because of the arthritis, when I get on the floor, I plan to remain there until the project is finished. To move about, I either push myself with my arms or I do a little walk on my tush. Both types of motion have created 1. a blister on my elbow, 2. very sore glutes, and 3. a screeching back.

And look at the dining room fixture! They say that brass fixtures are no longer "in style. We found a product at Menard's that was made by Rust-oleum. It is a universal spray, metallic paint and primer in one. We used the Oil Rubbed Bronze color. Now the entry, the hall and dining room fixtures are "up to date / in style for the cost of one can.
I am not the only one that is re-doing. Poor John. A few years ago he converted our garage into my art studio and is not reconverting in back into a garage! That is one huge task. He is removing walls that he built and putting a wall where he once had his workbench to box in the furnace/utility room that he built.
|Can you say "stuff?"|
What a job! Tomorrow, I am to pack all quilting "stuff" to be picked up by guild members. Each of the plastic boxes contain the fabric for one quilt! Each box is labeled and many times has the design that John's mom had planned to create. If she had lived to be a hundred and ten, she would have never used all that is in the photo.
Well, I'm off to work! Eagerly looking forward to tomorrow and a day of rest and worship.
God bless you all!
