American Chopper, Trading Spaces, This Old House most any kind of custom fabrication TV show fascinates me. I love to watch people create custom stuff from scratch or redo problem rooms in a house.
Inspired by these shows, this weekend my wife and I decided we would give our bathroom a makeover. We decided to do this midway through Saturday morning. There was plenty of time left in the day to simply paint the walls blue and leave the woodwork and trim white.
We spent the entire day getting the supplies we needed. Now our simple painting project was spilling over into Sunday afternoon. I taped everything up and started the first of many missteps with the paint. We finally quit for the night with the job undone.
Now it is Monday, and it seems that instead of going to the rink and playing hockey tonight, I will be on a ladder in my bathroom slopping paint. This is not exactly the way this thing was supposed to work out. Our little project is taking substantially more time than the big ones on TV do. They usually get massive jobs done in only one hour.
I can hardly wait to get this thing done and get back on the couch in front of the TV where I belong.
