I wanted to give you an update on my sister’s laundry room makeover.
Here is a picture to remind of you of what it looked like when we began.
The first thing we needed to do was take down the wire shelves to make room for some cabinets on the walls.
Since I AM DOING THIS LAUNDRY ROOM MAKEOVER, I asked Cyndi to make sure to take everything off the shelves and remove them from the wall, so when I came over I could get straight to work. I mean, she could help a little, right?
Well, she whined and complained that I was making her do the “grunt” work by taking down the shelves. Seriously?
She even made a video about it on her blog last week to share her “frustrations.” I will share it with you at the bottom of the post.
But HERE IS THE TRUTH!
She called Dad (the morning I was coming over) to do the “grunt work” for her!
I am a DIY (do it yourself) girl.
Cyndi says she is a HDIY (hirer a DIY’er) girl.
But she’s not even paying Dad to help!
Look at her there on the cell phone as Dad is working hard! It’s pitiful, I tell ya’!
Well, Dad finished taking down the shelves in time to get back home to watch the Kentucky Wildcats in the SEC tournament.
And I got busy filling up the dry wall holes and sanding them smooth.
Sweet Eli was there with me, sitting in his favorite spot at Aunt CeCe’s house! He eats his breakfast in that spot every time he stays the night with her.
He was watching the movie “Elf” on her tv.
I began “cutting in” around the perimeter and in the corners of the room with a paint brush.
And around the ironing board and trim work.
I didn’t take a final shot of the room because we ran out of paint. (Cyndi didn’t buy enough. Ahem.)
But you can see the first coat on the walls in the pictures of Eli below.
There was a lot of dust on the floor from when I sanded the walls, and Eli used a wet rag to help me clean it all up.
I love that kid!!!
So I put together a little video of our morning together. It shows how I caught Cyndi in the act of pretending she was doing the grunt work.
But first, please take a second to watch the video she created to try and fool y’all into thinking she was actually about to do hard labor.
(If you have trouble viewing these videos, click on the post title to view them on my blog.)
Now you can watch the TRUE STORY…
I found some cabinets at the Habitat ReStore for Cyndi’s laundry room today. Can’t wait to show you!
Are you a DIY’er or an HDIY’er?
