Lest you think knitting was my only New Year’s accomplishment let me show you my second completed project. July 3rd I had a cockamamie idea to change the color of our basement bathroom from light Grimace to radioactive sea foam. The old color was bad but the green was so bright it literally changed the color of other objects in the bathroom.
Unfortunately, there is nothing like making a bad paint color choice to hamper the ability to make a new color choice. “What if I pick something worse?” (Like that’s possible.) So the paint stayed, but I never took off the blue painters’ tape as an acknowledgement of my terrible mistake.
Then as part of our post holiday stuff-purge Mr. Afthead happened upon an almost full half gallon of paint we had from long ago: a color we both loved, but replaced when our daughter asked for a blue room. It was eggshell finish, not my preferred semigloss for bathrooms, but I wasn’t going to be picky. Thus it came to pass that I was sick on New Years Eve – too sick to party but not too sick to take to bed – and upon that night where an old year changes to new I did paint the dreaded bathroom. It was glorious. Note the toilet is again white! A New Year’s miracle.
If anyone needs most of a half gallon of paint for something that really needs to be seen, even in the darkest night, you let me know. I probably won’t get to the paint store to recycle it for a bit.
Wow! So productive! What else could an Afthead accomplish in the new year? Just you wait and see…
