It’s your sometimes-weekly front hall update!

So, what’s been going on in that potentialful front hall of mine that I’ve been working so hard on? Is it done? Is it almost done?

You deserve to know. You deserve to have something beautiful and inspiring to look at.

You just won’t find it here!

Instead I offer you this:

It’s in pretty much the same state as what I showed you last time. Only messier!

You see, I’ve been trying to get some progress happening. And there has been some.

I did manage to put up that little bit of chair rail there all on my own. Actually, no, it’s not really up. It’s mostly just cut to the exact size so it wedges in between the other two pieces of vertical molding.

All the other pieces that need to go up involve me learning how to use new power tools. And I can. I have no doubt that I can. The problem is that to figure all that out and then get working and get some installation going on would take pretty much a whole day. Or more. And then I think I’d feel guilty for all of the other things I’d miss getting done during that time. Yup, I over-think things. So I haven’t yet. But I might. Or Chris may just do it in “20 seconds” like he says he can sometime this weekend.

I did get a new thermostat though! It’s something I’d been meaning to do anyway while I was working in this hall and I ended up getting it for free through the hydro company. Isn’t it pretty? OK, well it makes me happy at least. Now if I could only figure out if and how we can rip down that ugly non-functioning humidity controller thing beside it.

So there you have it, my friends! It’s not much, but progress is progress, I say!

    I would say that getting your hubby to say he would work on that this weekend is progress! Isn’t it funny how they can do something like that so fast and it takes a huge learning curve for us? Is it because we hate loud, sharp things that can hurt us? Are we sissies? Naw, we’re the smart ones. All we have to do is say ‘Pretty please!’ It looks great so far! xx

    I had one just like that, and the ‘guy’ took it down and put the new one in the same place.

    I’m impressed you got the wood cut exactly to size so that it wedges in! Good as done in my book. Woo hoo! And hang onto that old controller thingy! That’s a gem. They don’t make em like that any more. Someone will want that. Found you at My Romantic Home and enjoyed your procrastination until Chris does it. Nice work.
