A little paint never killed anyone…

A little paint never killed anyone…

Home improvement projects are well under way here at the farm!  Staying home with a 7 month old kid and three dogs can make me a little stir crazy at times.  Henley and I decided one day to rip out he carpet in the stairs.  This was about a month ago.  It went a bit like this…

Me: Hen, Olive let redo the stairs!

Hen: sequels Witt glee from her pack and play (she must approve)!

Olive:  Well mom you know I love destroying things but is dad going to come home be mad and blame me?

Me:  No olive I will take full responsibility for this.  

It was at this point I realized that both my daughter Henley and my partner in crime Olive were not exactly on board.  I decided I was on my own with this project.

I began to rip out carpet under the ever watchful supervision of Olive and Henley.  When I started this project I though 11 stairs that won’t take me long at all.  Well I forgot to take into account the 7 month old baby that would interrupt me every 30 minutes (about how long it takes to get settled into a project).   Needless to say it took longer than expected (a couple weeks) but they look great!
