I have never done so much painting in my life! Our paneled wall office took over my life this past week. I started with the painting last week and today FINALLY finished it all up. As if it isn't hard enough painting paneling, it isn't easy trying to paint with 2 80lb weimeraners running around sticking their noses into everything, literally (see exhibit A).
Yes, that is paint on Rhett's nose, from where he pushed his way through the door I was painting...
In addition to dodging dogs, I was playing assistant wiring technician to Gregory (see exhibit B):
Yes, that's the hubby being the main wiring technician, running speaker wires through the attic for the new speaker system he just purchased. Please pay no attention to all the other stuff in that room, it's kinda the catch all room at the moment until we are able to disperse it all...
And to finish off the night, we started painting the rec room (exhibit c):So apparently I like to start and end my day with painting...I think I might start my own business!!

This was another one of Gregory's "Wild Hairs" and apparently on his "to-do first" list. (I later found out it was because he wanted the original light for his new shed...)
So after ripping off the old light, realizing it needed a box in order to mount the new light, buying a box to mount the light, mounting the new light, and FINALLY taping and painting around the newly mounted light...WHA-LA! We had a bright, new, fancy light! And we love it. So here are the before, during and afters...
There were so many "firsts" to consider, so we just started doing things as they popped into our heads. So after my awesome father-in-law (and mother-in-law) came up and cut down our forest of bushes; Gregory got a wild hair and decided to take down the horrible stable fences that served no purpose at all. So, without further ado...
Here's the Before (Pre-awesome FIL/MIL and Gregory):
AND, Here's the after (Post-awesome FIL/MIL and Gregory):
