Great progress on the studio!

I got the last five pieces of wallpaper on the third upper wall last evening. I then dumped the leftover white I had in a bucket and threw in some of the paint I used for the wainscoting to tint the white paint a lighter shade for painting the paintable wallpaper. I did some of the edging, but it was getting late and I needed to get more paint on the wall since I mixed up more than a gallon and I only had one empty gallon can to store the leftover paint. Here you can see the edging I still need to paint.

This room is a mess! There is stuff everywhere and it is starting to make me crazy.

I did go to the home improvement store and buy furniture movers to put under the legs of my big sewing table. It was a pain trying to scoot that table around and now it glides so much easier!

Tonight I will put the second coat on the wallpaper and then I can finally move the furniture back into place. This weekend is all about working on the last wall in the room where my design wall with my ocean quilt on it. Prime, paint, wallpaper, paint etc.

Look at this mess! I have just jammed stuff into the utility/laundry room to get it out of the way. While the paint is drying I will be attacking this mess.

Maybe with cleaning up the utility/laundry room I will find the two pieces of trim I need for the studio.

I went out to check my zinnias this morning and saw these deer footprints

The deer apparently don't like zinnias because the zinnias did not show any sign of the deer chomping on them

The deer did eat most of the leaves off of these young cora bells. I will have to make a cover of some kind so they can recover

Here are the older plants and the deer didn't touch them

How have I been keeping my energy up with all the remodeling, etc? It hasn't been easy. Part of it is mental, just moving even if I am tired, and first thing in the morning I drink one of these before I take a shower. Usually by the time I am done I feel better. They don't give me a buzz or make me jumpy. They just take the edge of the tiredness.

Have a great weekend!

Take your quilt room look right now and multiply it by 10 and that is how MINE looks! I think I need o hire an organizer/painter to clean up my room while I am recovering!

I just ordered some Proti-Boost from Nashua Nutrition. It is all natural with a lot of vitamins, ginseng, ginko, green tea, and A-C-E- Bs. It is called a thermogenic antioxidant.

I will see how that works.
