What Was I Thinking?

I don't think I am supposed to be doing this, not now, not less than 10 days before Christmas.

What, you ask am I doing?

I started painting my downstairs bathroom a few days ago.

So I must not have a brain in my head?
Why this little room is taking so long, I don't know.

It started with the doors. The contractor white had faded long ago to a mellow off white. That's not so bad, but after 17 years the woodwork was really showing a bit of neglect. Time to paint the doors!
But, you know how that goes. The white doors made the old drab white walls look even drabber and more neglected. So, why not just run the roller and brush on to the walls.

Then white walls started looking really WHITE. Too white. So, I decided I needed an accent wall. I have now laid down one coat of a medium green that I think might be too dark. I am going to finish this, even if the color is wrong. I can change it later since it is just one small wall.

Anyway, long story short. I should be getting ready for Christmas instead of painting.

No tree is up, no lights are up, no presents are wrapped, no cookies are baked,
What was I thinking?

LOL, isn't it amazing the domino effect of projects...and you think it's such a little room, I can get this done in a day...not. Add some red candles to your green and white bathroom and tell everyone that is your Xmas decorating ;o)

Have a Merry Christmas.
