Mom bought yellow paint for the cabinets in the kitchen, she is painting the kitchen grey and yellow with new curtains that will be Navy.  Dad is working on the "highway to hell" for the week so now is the time to destroy any similarities to normalcy at our house.

This is NOT our kitchen.  This is a kitchen Mom found on Pininterest.....Mom says "Pin" is a lying, cheating. ..&^#*& cos nothing she does turns out like this........I told her, "mom our kitchen doesn't even LOOK like this.????"    Instead our "Pin" picture should have been this.

Mom is also putting polyurethane---sticky stinky stuff on our hallway.  She says she will never haf to wax those old floors again, AND she is covering some new paint on the utility room floor also. 

Mom didn't realize how fast that stuff gives you a headache, and how LONG it takes to dry.  It says 3-4 hours on the can, but the hallway took a good 10 hours and the utility room is still sticky.....looks like no clean clothes for us today.  Mom better have it dry before Dad gets home on Friday with a crap load of dirty clothes.  She may have to use a hair dryer.......................I suggested that, .....she suggested other inappropriate things to me.

Day One a failure to the paint store to buy new paint.  We all had to wear sun glasses cos the neon yellow paint was to much in our small kitchen...........

Off to the tub to wash the grey paint off my tail, and ears, Mom says I look like a skunk.   Where is our Dad?

  1. Whenever my dad leaves on a business trip, my mom start planning thing from Pinterest.....Well, nothing ever turns out like it does on Pinterest! So instead of enjoy a relaxing dad business trip, mom snuggle time, we are in pure panic mode of my slewing HBO words for days on end......


  2. Oh gosh lol.
    Yeah Pinterest is a real bitch....

  3. What a household!!!! I love it!

    Love, Gampy

  4. pinterest pics and youtube tutorials can backfire... I know... we had a weird hairstyle and a failed stairs project (the paint needs more time to dry too and we were locked upstairs for 87 years and my mom can lift me up with her thin spaghetti arms). I cross my paws that your mom's projects look great at the end of the week when your dad is back from that highway to hell.

  5. Oh my, is ANYBODY gonna release my BFF Maggie Mae frum the sticky floor, she's been glued to it for hours now???????
    And UH OH, is that Gussie I see flying by wiv a paintbrush loaded wiv neon yellow paint!!!!!!!

  7. Oh if we could be a fly on the wall BOL! Those projects are always harder than they sound in the planning stages. We do like your mom's color selections though. Good luck and show us the "after" photo!

  8. Wow, sounds like lots of work!

  11. My Mommy #2 hates to paint. She wants nothing to do with it. Your Mama has a lot of gumption.

  12. OH That is gonna be a gorgeous happy kitchen. We love the cabinets looking forward to seeing it with curtains too
    Hugs madi your bfff

  13. Sounds like the time Lady painted and now she isn't allowed to do it anymore. Best of luck for day 2.

  14. Paint is such a difficult thing to get right. Mom and Dad got a gazillion sample cans for our first floor before they were satisfied. Picky picky. We hope Mom's projects all turn out well.

    Yours sincerely,

  16. Oh this is a major project going on in your house. I was going to warn you not to get paint on yourself because that makes Moms mad. But too late. Lie low and best of luck on your improvements

  17. oh no - not a pinterest know things never work out like they show :) :)

  18. Oh goodness! It's such a bummer when the projects don't work out like you envision them! That Pinterest... it's the devil. Tempting you with all these "easy" DIY projects.... and then it all ends in failure! Hope you got some new, lovely paint! And hope the projects get done before Dad gets home!

  19. We are waiting patiently for pictures (NOT)

  20. BOL mom painted once and said never again......not near as easy as you think and no where near the fun it was going to be. Good luck to you all.

    Aroo to you,

  21. Your dad will be soooo surprised!! Make sure you dont stick to the floors!

  22. SHE painted our lounge room, three times before SHE found a colour SHE could live with..... We're used to failed projects here.
