Happy Monday, everyone. Now and then we like to write a kind of behind the scenes blog post here on The 2 Seasons. You can read the last one here. We are back with another one today.
As you know, I am visiting Jordan in Syracuse where we are experiencing the sound of water. Unfortunately, it’s not this kind of water.
It’s the slow drip of a leaky roof. Now, to add salt to this wound, it’s the new roof that Jordan wrote about here. That’s right. Their bungalow’s new roof that is less than two years old has sprung several leaks. And because of the ice dam (yes, there is such a thing) and several feet of snow, it can’t be fixed till the big thaw – whenever that is.
Right now this living room, which we had planned to paint this week, doesn’t look like this. The furniture is all pulled to the center of the room and plastic bins sitting around the perimeter are catching the drip, drip, drips of the leaking roof.
It ain’t pretty, folks, but it’s life, and it’s our lives. We want to keep it real for you all. There is definitely dry wall work, which means lots of dry wall dust, in their future. What a mess that will make. But we always refer to one of our favorite quotes when dealing with things like this – “It’s a first world problem.”
Now, as long as we are on the topic of realness, the last time you saw their full bath, it looked like this when their new floor project stalled. We have good news to report on this topic. They realized that this DIY project had gotten beyond their skill set, and they hired a pro. He worked steadily last week, and the new tile will go down tomorrow. Then as a bonus to the whole original plan, he will be hanging beadboard. The bathroom should be finished and ready for a reveal this week. I have my fingers crossed that it will be before I leave on Thursday.
I brought the yellow and white shower curtain that we used in our guest bath before I made this one along with a fluffy yellow rug. She will hang it and spread the rug once the work is finished.
The combo of yellow with the gray walls (Sherwin Williams 6002) and these basket weave tiles will be really cute.
This all being said, we haven’t really let it dampen our spirits (pun intended) during my visit. And I haven’t even mentioned the mouse that refuses to go down. Yikes!!! Any helpful tidbits on eliminating a stubborn mouse are welcome in our comments section….Please…..
Still, we have eaten out, worked out, shopped, gone to the movies, laughed, played with Gracie, and gone antiquing. We are devoting today to blog projects and writing.
We are looking forward to our annual spa day on Wednesday.
Thanks so much for stopping in. We will see you come back tomorrow.
