Life is all about discoveries isn’t it?
From the day you are born – you discover you can poop in your nappy as many times as
you want, and someone will come along and put on a clean one in its place.
And powder your little tush and talk silly to you all at the same time.
Then, as you grow older – there are the discoveries that are rather upsetting once
you learn of them.
Like the fact that Velveeta is not REAL cheese.
How can that be so?
Even today, I struggle with this discovery.
I mean – it is the main component of a good Mac ‘n CHEESE.
It is the guts of a grilled CHEESE sammy.
So how can that possibly be that Velveeta is not a real cheese.
Do you know how devastating that is to a Southern gal?
Then, there are other types of discoveries.
Such as realizing that your one week schedule to have the laundry room/pantry completed was…well, comical.
Who was I kidding?
(as we are half-way through week 2)
Now I will say, it isn’t for lack of effort from my dear hubby and son.
In fact, they have worked their little tushies off while I laid on the couch wrapped in quilts from head to toe,
freezing to death.
It appears the docs have discovered I am dangerously anemic.
Or as I call it, dangerously useless.
But, I do see an end in sight. Today, I am crawling out from under the mountain ‘o quilts and
tackling some more painting and caulking.
But, I wanted to share this tip…well, y’all already know this tip probably.
It’s Moulding 101 really.
If I had not been so busy “rah-rah-rah’ing” in high school with pretty blue and white poms,
and on a hormonal discovery of boys – I could have taken Woodshop Class and
discovered this so much earlier. 🙂
Did you know you can “fake” expensive trims and mouldings?
What you say? Fake it? (gasp!) It’s ok, ladies. This time it’s okay. 🙂
A little 1×4, a little 1×2 and some inexpensive trim moulding…
Oh my. It’s like the best fake since Milli Vanilli put out their best-selling album.
(Another “discovery” that blew me away?
Milli Vanilli did not actually sing “Ew, ew, ew – I love you” or “Blame it on the rain…?”)
You’re welcome, you know you will be singing this the rest of the day now. 😀
But here it is – layered mouldings in all of its faked glory. (sans caulk and paint, of course)
And speaking of caulk… I have discovered one other thing.
