Although I think the 70's was one of the coolest decades - when I look back I could vomit.
MY GOD we had no taste at all )
Our clothes were awful
and then someone came up with the innovative thought that these railings
were somehow superior to these railings ( in case you missed the post of this IWLTW - it's HERE
I think we were trying to break out of a prison or something ( metaphorically of course unless you actually DID spend time in prison - and even then why would you want your stair railing to remind you of that particular episode in your life? )
And if you haven't seen those railings in years - well then come by for a visit - I HAVE THEM !!!
Except I changed them up a little bit of course...............
Because there's nothing -
And I DO mean nothing
That can't be fixed with white paint
( except 70's page boys - you can't do a damn thing with them except let them grow out )
Here's a conversation that happened the other night.
I was woken up ( should that be awoken ? ) by the door closing loudly - and
John says - Oh no...............
Suzan says groggily - You didn't .
John says - What are we going to do?
Suzan says - ( screams actually ) I told you to PLEASE PUT THE HANDLE BACK ON
John says - What are we going to do?
Suzan says - I DON'T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS !!!!!!
Suzan says - You'll have to climb out the window
John says - What the hell? Are you going to let me climb down your hair Rapunzel?
Suzan says - Seriously, YOU. ARE. GOING. TO. HAVE. TO. CLIMB. OUT. THE. WINDOW
( I really like my bed - but it's supposed to be my sanctuary - not death row )
John says - Don't be ridiculous - anyway my keys are in my coat downstairs so even if I did I can't open the door
Suzan says- You'll have to climb out the window - and smash a window somewhere
Suzan says - We can't stay locked up in the room
Suzan says- panic setting in - YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING
I had images of us starving to death in the room - found on the bed with Soda - locked up together forever more..............
John rummages in his closet and finds a screwdriver
Suzan says - What is a screw driver doing in your closet?
Suzan says - I had to put handles back on a dresser with a butter knife because I couldn't find it
Suzan says - WHY DON'T YOU PUT ANYTHING BACK WHERE IT BELONGS?
John says - (as he clicks open the door) - Thank God I don't........................
Suzan says - while you have the screw driver out - do you think you can put the door knob back on?
John says - It's too late - I'm going to bed....................
That was 3 days ago - take a look at the bedroom door everyone!!!
The handle has been spray painted and ready to go back on for over 2 months now -
Guess I should bite the bullet and install it myself - but I really want him to
feel that he's been a part of this reno LOL
La la la la life goes on...............................
John's out of town while this got done - let's see the conversation that ensues when he sees the branches LMHO
I've strategically placed them so they don't put him in harm's way
You can read how he feels about branches HERE
I used Behr floor paint - white gloss - because it's very durable and because I have a ton of it on hand.
The blue on the wall - just in case anyone wants to know - is Behr Pensive Sky.
Have a great day all !
