Well, I made some great headway with the scrap room this weekend. I am so blessed with friends and family. When I decided to paint my sisters, Sherri and Kim, showed up to help. I didn't even ask them. So there were four of us on the first day (mom is always a trooper) and then Kim stayed the next day and my friend Renee came over. It was a bit traumatic because the original color I picked out looked way too yellow in the daylight and we were almost done. So what could have been a day and a half job turned into a three day job. Such is life sometimes. Guess you could look at it as more fellowship time. ;-)
This weekend was the put together the cupboards from IKEA weekend and my friend Rebecca volunteered to come over to help. We made a really good team and got a lot done on Saturday. Sunday just about did me in though. Drilling the holes in the doors for the handles was pretty easy but when it came time to try to attach the doors it was not pleasant. I had two different sets of hardware to figure out. They must be in transition with their hardware vendor. They made it look so easy in the picture but it took forever and I thought it would never end. It did involve a little cussing here and there. Mom was a real trooper and tried to help but resorted to cleaning up the huge pile of cardboard left in the aftermath.
I'm used to being very self sufficient but it is so cool when people actually want to help you and volunteer. Thanks girls for all your wonderful help!!
