I painted my kitchen. Well, I painted most of my kitchen (six months ago). There were some tricky bits I left for later, as well as the three doors (it's complicated but has to do with the need to keep the doors open and the cats away from them while the paint dries).
Later is one of my favorite words because it's so non-specific. Later allows one time to to stop noticing the unfinished bits and I'd very probably have gone on not noticing if it weren't for Tammy, over at Food on The Food. In a bold move she announced that she was going to take a break from blogging until she finished her kitchen painting project. That was... um... well it was a while ago, and I've been delighted to see that she frequently pops in to give us non-progress reports on the painting project (as well as new developments with The Farmer).
But the thing is, it reminded me of my own unfinished project and then I made an off-hand comment about getting mine done before she got hers done and then she suggested a race which I accepted. Then a heat wave hit New York (have I mentioned that my kitchen is un-air conditioned?), so procrastination wins again and so will Tammy.
In other procrastinating news it's been since January that I've been meaning to take photos of my imperfectly organized pantry to send to Lydia of The Perfect Pantry. I've managed to take the photos, at least, and you can see the nice soft sage green on the walls.
Now I just have to send Lydia my photos... and set a date for painting the trim later. Like when the weather cools off and pigs fly.
