Today wasn’t as productive as I had hoped. You would think being woken up at 5 AM would leave lots of time to get things done. However, it just doesn’t seem to work that way for me.
I didn’t get anything done in the bathroom, but I did work on something for the bathroom. I knew when the room was done it would need some extra color. Keeping with my frugalness I decided to paint a picture for the room. I started with a large canvas that I originally planned on painting for Ben’s room.
If you look carefully you can see the beginnings of a Captain America painting. I only got as far as doing the pencil outlines when he decided that he wanted Power Rangers, not Avengers.
Using this picture as inspiration:
I sketched it out and started painting. I used sample paints that we had gotten for other rooms of the house, craft paint that I had, and paint pens that I had used on this project. Spent the morning sitting on my bed, watching Battlestar Galactica, and doodled. This is how far I got on it today:
It’s a lot of fun to work on. I’m hoping to finish it off sometime this weekend. It shouldn’t take too much longer. There is only the green flower left to doodle.
I also spent some time working on a before and after project that I will share tomorrow. Remember these chairs?
I decided to try fixing one up myself. I chose the one in the back with the green junk all over the wood. I figured I couldn’t really screw it up any more then it was. So far so good.
Here’s to a more productive day tomorrow.
