So does anyone find that the winter (and especially all the cold rainy days we have had in January) find you feeling a little like this?
Yeah, the winter blues have sort of reared their ugly head here too…
Which is part of the reason why my mantel has looked like since Christmas (and my mantel is usually never undecorated more than 1 day between seasons!)
and my front door has looked like this since Christmas…
In between all the cleaning, and purging, and organizing I have been doing, I just haven’t had the motivation to just get these areas decorated!
Plus, I have another reason…
Remember that sign that I made for our Christmas mantel? I attached it to the wall with command squares (supposed to hold really well, be easily removable, etc.)
This is what happened when I took the sign down after Christmas. Oh it came down pretty easy – taking paint, and the top of the sheetrock right along with it .
Lovely, right?? No wonder I haven’t had motivation to decorate my mantel, knowing that I had to spackle, sand, and paint before I could start the fun part.
But I finally told myself this weekend, “Get it done, already!”
So I sanded, spackled, and sanded again this weekend. And I went ahead and repainted pretty much the whole fireplace wall since there were marks from previous mirrors and décor . Now I am just waiting for it to get good and dry so I can finally have a decorated mantel again!
I’ll be back tomorrow with the mantel (probably will be more Valentine-themed now instead of winter-themed since January is pretty much gone now!) And I might even have a wreath on my front door this week to share with you too!
How about you? Struggling with the winter blues? Or putting off decorating an area because you have to repair and paint it first??
