I try to keep it real here on this blog. Yesterday I posted lovely pictures of my perfectly organized basement. I had big plans after posting the craft room to paint the playroom.
So I went down in that basement, got a good start on painting and then swore like a sailor when this happened:
That is half a gallon of silvery blue latex paint spilled on the carpet as the result of one Dragonfly tumbling off a stool. If you’re wondering, yes, there was a dropcloth down – I rolled it up to contain even more of the spilled paint.
My shoe, which was the actual bucket tipper, now looks more like a Croc than a leather walking shoe.
Oh how I swore. And if you know me, you know that that is not my style AT ALL. I hate profanity! Not one of my better moments.
I am happy to report that I had our favorite carpet cleaners on the phone within minutes of this happening. They showed up within an hour and were able to get all of the paint out of the carpet. Miracle! A tip for future paint spills: clean up as much as you can squeegee style then put a damp white cloth over the spill to keep it damp until the carpet cleaner gets there.
So there you have it. A great big dose of Dragonfly reality. Now the playroom is only half painted. I have to go get more paint today to finish the job. Lovely. I should be locked up and prevented from attempting house projects! Hope your weekend is profanity free!
