I haven’t been posting lately because I am in the midst of a huge master bedroom closet redo. The before picture is posted below…more pictures to come during a future reveal post. The demolition took about 3 hours, but the putting back together is taking much longer than the entire 2 days I set aside for the project. There are piles of clothing on every surface of furniture in our upstairs. I can hardly stand to be at the house – especially upstairs – because of the mess. My impatient nature is truly being tested with this project. This is the first time I have done any drywall work and there is no w
ay to rush the process. One of the peaks of the ceiling had to be retaped and new joint compounded. It has had three layers of compound on it and I will sand it tonight to finish priming. I picked a very light gray from Benjamin Moore to compliment the galvanized metal, weathered wood, and stainless fixtures that will go back in place. I have the vision, but the elbow grease it takes to get there is overwhelming.
During this project, my daughter came down with a sore throat and I made her favorite homemade organic chicken soup. She likes it when I make chicken soup with everything chopped into teeny tiny pieces. Here is the approved kid tested recipe:
2 organic chicken breasts
A bunch of carrots
A couple of potatoes
Two sautéed onions
A heavy sprinkling of turmeric
Organic pasta from Whole Foods (whatever is in the cabinet)
Freshly ground pepper
Sprigs of parsley and cilantro
Chop each item very small – into one by one centimeter cubes. Saute until chicken is cooked through; add water, salt, pepper, pasta, and herbs and simmer until cooked through.
Chicken soup does wonders for sore throats.
I wish it did the same for closet redos.
