Who knew that if your up on a ladder and the ceiling fan blade was in your way that if you gave it a big ole' spin that the next blade would hit you in the back of the head and knock you off the ladder? Don't even try to tell me that you knew it would happen.... ouch!! Good thing it was a new sturdy fan, the old one would have came crashing to the floor with me. I tried to get a picture of me all curled up on the floor but I couldn't find my "help I can't get up" alarm necklace so you get a photo of the light fixture that John needs to fix when he gets home.
I'm just kidding.... I didn't fall to the floor but my head still hurts where that blade hit me, so let this be a teaching post for you.... DO NOT spin the blades of a ceiling fan when you head is between them!! There now I feel better that you all learned something from my Lea moment. That's what we call those times we do things really silly... my mother was the queen of doing some really silly things, too bad I wasn't old enough to appreciate most of them before she died.
Okay so as long as I think I'm teaching you something for your future painting reference let's talk about this..... So I had 2 gallons of ceiling paint, mixed at the same time so when I started this project I cleaned up the first gallon and started the 2nd, should be fine right? Well no it wasn't, the 2nd gallon was a different type of base paint, seriously..... why would they mix me two different types of base paint, are you kidding me I don't get my paint at Walmart, I really do shop at a PAINT STORE.... anyway the sheen was different so a quarter of my first living room ceiling (separated by a beam) looked different than the rest so I had to re-paint everything I did with the 1st gallon. URGHHH now I was on the floor beating my head against the carpet since I already removed all my painters tape and have to redo it.....knowing that they tell you to start a new gallon on a new wall or a separated by a big ole' black wood beam, who ever believes that???? they just say that to make you use more paint!!
I'm okay really, I think the inside air is effecting me or it could be all the paint fumes. Since the ceiling paint is really boring here's a fun painting I did. Can tomorrow be winding too I'm back in the painting mood and I don't think I've sniffed enough fumes yet.
It's really bright but I like it and that little aqua glass I got at a garage sale, it was made to be there. Check out the shelf before paint here
