Hello and Welcome to Week Three of the One Room Challenge. If needed, you can catch up by reading about Week One here and Week Two here. A special thanks to Linda from Calling it Home for hosting this
Mr. Breaking Brown and I are great friends, so knowing that, please do not find it strange when I questioned why he had three large holes in the ceiling of his bedroom. He assured me that they had been there since he purchased the house. I, of course, jokingly told him that the "previous owners" probably had a ... swing? Humor. Har.
Fast forward to this week. While prepping for paint, I noticed that there was a ton of damage to the wall in the corner. And that there was a huge gouge in the window frame where "something" hip level had hit with enough force to displace the window trim. I showed it to Mr. Breaking Brown and we had a good laugh. We also concluded that, yes, the previous owners must have been loads of fun.
The carpentry and painting was a huge part of our to-do list and I am thrilled to be able to mark it off. I know adding trim like this can be quite intimidating. If you are interested, I'd be happy to show how I did the math for the design in a future post? A math lesson...I'm sure that will have a ton of takers. :)
Our to-do list for Project #BreakingBrown is:
Stock up on caffeine and wine (at your urging, this has been moved to top billing) Remove and replace existing baseboards and door casings Add board and batten to the long wall behind the bed
