Another home owner mishap ...

Remember how I spilled paint onto my carpet after owning my home for only 30 minutes? Yeah, that was fun.

Two nights later, we had another mishap.

When my grandfather passed away two years ago, I was gifted the most adorable bedroom set. Vintage and my grandmother inherited it from her aunt, so it is easily 100+ years old.  Unfortunately, the bed didn't take the move very well.


During my second sleep in the new home, I was awakened to falling off my bed. The head board leg gave way and the side board fell apart. :( While I practically fell off my bed. Practically.

I contacted several woodsworkman {this is sooo a word, trust me} and they might be able to fix it. Sigh. But so far, no definitive. Sooooo. I bought a new bedroom set.

But in the mean time, my room is a disaster and I am sleeping on a mattress and box springs on the floor. THEN I can show you my bedroom. Wait. Strike that out. As soon as I get the new bedroom set and get rid of those hideous green walls, THEN I can show you my bedroom. BUT!!! Again, this is all better than spilling paint onto the carpet of the living room floor of a home you've only owned for 30 minutes. ;)

Sneak Peak! | Living Room

Guys, I have remembered to take out the garbage can to the side of the road three Tuesdays out of three. This is to say, although I spilled paint on my carpet within 30 minutes of owning my new home, I am still an awesome home owner!

Things are sllloooowly coming together in the house. So slowly that the living room is the only room in the entire house that is put together. :)


Technically, the little end table by the couch still needs to be painted white and will be gone for about two weeks to the furniture hospital for cosmetic surgery. That's the same problem with the kitchen. The bar stools, dining table and chairs need a little face lift too {some sanding and painting}. But I will take what I can get for now! Place a little check mark next to the living room and on to the kitchen! :)

HOME.OWNER.

Remember that one time that I BOUGHT MY FIRST HOUSE?


Oh, you probably don't because I never told you about it. Because I didn't have internet at my apartment for the last month and to my knowledge, I still don't have it at MY.HOUSE.

BUT HEY!!!! I BOUGHT A HOUSE.

I am a legit, bonefide HOME.OWNER.

And if you can keep this between you and me, I am going to tell you a little secret ... I am the WORST HOME OWNER EVER.

"Why?" you might ask.

Well, I will tell you.

It might just be that within the first 30 minutes of being a home owner, I spilled PAINT on my carpet! This may or may not be true, based on whether you can keep it a secret.

But what the heck? It is true.

No worries, though! My devoted sister was with me when I did it. And not only is she devoted to me, but she is devoted to clean homes and paint-free carpet. While I had to dash off to a meeting for work, she sat on the floor of my brand new home and dabbed the carpet over and over and over again until paint no longer dabbed onto the towel.

So, this post is either about the fact that I am the worst home owner ever or my sister is the best sister ever.  And with that, I am off. Fingers crossed to internet soon! :)
