See this wall? It's completely disgusting, isn't it? Yeah, I agree.
This is the wall that was next to my stove. Unfortunately, the paint that I used way back when was NOT washable, and every time I got something splattered on it and tried to clean it off, it would take the paint off with it. Ugh.
I have HATED this, because this was the first thing I saw every time I walked into my kitchen -- this disgusting wall that just shouted, "She doesn't know how to clean!"
I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it for the longest time. All the solutions I could think of were just WAY too expensive, so I was paralyzed by indecision... until a few weeks ago, when I just went to the hardware store, grabbed some fake wainscotting and some trim, and brought it home for my sweet dh, who graciously agreed to put it up for me.
And see! Several YEARS of hating a wall, all fixed in one afternoon -- thanks to my husband, who can tackle these sorts of things so easily!
In other news, Beth asked me to post a picture of Joseph, who has been absent from this blog for many, many months.
When you last saw him, he was a scrawny little guy who just couldn't gain weight and cried all the time...
Thanks to formula (which I hated having to use, but we were totally out of options), we now have a chunky, happy baby who never stays still enough for us to get a nice, clear picture of him!
Have a blessed Tuesday, everyone!
