I turned my laundry room into a pantry not sure of the dates but I believe it was from November 2020 to December 2020. Made all shelves nothing was Premade. The boxes was my template.


“Our lanai ceiling is peeling!” I hollered, “Oh my!”
As I pointed out bubbles and holes to my guy.

“A quick fix, my dear, it’s just spackle and sand—”
but soon he discovered more trouble at hand.

No primer up there meant more moisture would bubble
any new ceiling paint; that would be trouble.

Despite ‘pandemic time’, the job took a back shelf
to baking, reading, and TV—and did not fix itself.

Months passed when he said “TODAY is the day—
to tackle that spackle and get this job on its way!”

Well—that “quick fix” grew to a major redo:
peel, spackle, sand, primer, then ceiling paint, too.

What was started in April and completed by May:
turned our once peeling ceiling
more appealing—

We bought a fixer upper right before the pandemic hit… and now we are finally getting to do some remodeling. My amazing husband, Scott put in some beautiful french doors just a few of days ago, May 21st. Thank you for letting me show off his work!
