This is very bland and very boring. Me no likey.
I had a friend that put up wainscoting in her condo and it was beautiful. I decided that I wanted to do the same thing in my bedroom. I thought that with the help of my husband, some new power tools and a lof of help from the good people at Lowe's we would be able to tackle this task in no time. So Matt, being the sweet husband that he is, surprised me with my very own power tools! However, once we got started I realized that it wasn't going to be as simple as I thought. My husband, bless his heart, does not like doing home improvement projects but because he loves me he does them anyway. I honestly would not have been able to do this without him. If he wasn't so good at them I wouldn't ask for his help. So, if you think about it, he kind of brings these horrible projects upon himself. But don't you think for a second that I didn't hear continuous complaints about the project. He would say to me "You know I really HATE doing this project" and I was say "um ya, you tell me like every five seconds" which he would reply "Good. I just wanted to make sure you knew". I guess you could say that this project was a test on our relationship and we passed...barely. This liquid nail stuff that we are using was the devil! It was so hard to work with and it got all over our hands and stayed for days. No fun at all.
Matt agreed to help with the wood work only so I did the rest, which was a lot of work. I spent about 8 hours caulking and about 10 hours painting. This was no easy task and I was very sensitive about the comments being made from the peanut gallery (Matt). He would say something like "You missed a spot over here" or "this looks uneven" or "maybe you should go over this again so it looks more professional". I would get all emotional and tell him to "get out of the room" and "don't come back until you have ONLY nice things to say". I don't think being pregnant helped at all in this situation.
In the end we were happy with the finished project and quite proud of ourselves too! Even Matt said "Wow! this looks really good. Even though it was awful and I hated every minute of it, I would do it again." I about fell over at this point.
