Today I spent a few hours in the bathroom. Painting it. When Dan and I moved into this awesome house I new that I HATED the bathrooms. The previous owner decided to paint them all a depressing (and hideous) brown and peach. To make matters worse, she painted uneven stripes in one. YIKES! So, I decided that I was going to paint the downstairs bathroom while Dan was gone. We had seen a $3 gallon of "as is" paint at Lowes that we really liked and picked it up. It's light blue and we were shocked it was on the as is table. We figured we'd go ahead and try it for $3. It was originally $32 paint. Anyway, I've never taken on a project by myself before and was a little nervous.
While painting (and sweating... it's a tough job!) I realized that I was feeling a lot less stressed and lonely. Being stuck in the tiny bathroom with a paintbrush was taking my mind off of all my "problems" and was relaxing me! It also made me feel great about myself because I was accomplishing a task on my own. This is a big step for me.
The bathroom looks great. I love the color and proud of my paint job. I am awesome. (Pictures to come later)
Dan is supposed to come home tomorrow. That will be awesome.
