Hoarders, avert your eyes!
Everyone else, doesn’t that feel SO MUCH BETTER than this?
Oh my god, I feel like I can breathe again. Except for one thing.
Doesn’t this room feel like it could use a MAKEOVER now???
Maybe not a big one — after all, I’ve got all that woodwork that I haven’t even touched since I finished that one coat of primer, and Chris would probably just leave for work one day and not come back if he found out I started another project without finishing that one first.
But still. A new coat of paint wouldn’t take that long.
I could probably get it done while he’s away on a trip, he’d probably never even notice that I wasn’t working on the woodwork. I mean, I’m on a pretty loooooong streak of not working on the woodwork, so it wouldn’t be surprising at all if I simply continued not working on the woodwork. What difference would it make if the woodwork waited another 3-4 days?
You know, this room would look a lot taller if the wall color went all the way up those angled walls, you know what I’m saying? Too bad those angled walls are covered in popcorn. No matter what color it is, it’s still going to look like ceiling and not wall. If I were really serious about emphasizing the height of this room, I’d have to get rid of the popcorn.
DAMN YOU POPCORN CEILINGS.
They’re like an itch I’m not allowed to scratch. Chris is always like, “Just leave it alone, you’re only going to make it worse,” and he sounds so reasonable that I generally listen to him. Because I know that removing popcorn ceilings is a huge pain in the ass.
But think about it. If you had an actual itch for, let’s say, a couple of years, sooner or later you’d start to think that a short-term pain in the ass might be worth it, if it made the itch go away forever. Time’s a factor. Humans can endure tremendous strain for a short period, but over an extended period of time, even mild discomfort will begin to break you down, physically and/or mentally.
What difference would it make, really, if the woodwork waited another 6 weeks? I mean, which room makes you itch more: the one above, or this one?
I’ve lived with the mild discomfort of popcorn ceilings for over 10 years now.
Feels like it maybe it’s time to start scratching.
