Hey there friends! Can you even believe it’s time for the One Room Challenge Shed Makeover Week 5 update already?
AND it’s May?
AND I’m the mom to a high senior who will graduate in 20 days?
Oh wait, that’s just me who finds that hard to believe. Ray decided I needed some distraction yesterday from the shed makeover and pulled out home movies from when Dylan was a baby and little boy. WOW, that should do me in for the entire month!
Dylan wrote this on his Facebook page this week, “Classes end in two weeks for me, never thought that senior year would start so slow and end so fast. It feels like it was just January!”
He has no idea how true this is for his mom and dad…It feels like first day of Kindergarten to us!
Ok, I’ll move on with the shed makeover. Maybe because it’s almost Mother’s Day I’m feeling so sentimental.
This week lots of awesome progress was made on the shed makeover. I told my Ray when I decided to join this challenge one day before it started, I wouldn’t need any assistance from him for this project except moving the furniture out. BUT because he is my hero and he loves me so, he ended up building a bench and a serving area. These were basic for him in the build department and I think he secretly likes to have his mark on a space too.
Almost all of the painting is complete. Seriously this was the hardest thing I have ever painted. The paint kept soaking in to all of the plywood and if you have ever painted a ceiling then you totally understand how hard that is.
I also recovered an ottoman that I had saved. I had gotten rid of the matching chair last year and new the ottoman would come in handy.
What is left to do:
Hang light over table
Art to the back wall behind the sofa
Make it pretty
Now I better get busy! The weather is suppose to be perfect the next few days so it will be nice working out there.
