I’ve been promising you a guest room “reveal” for weeks now. And you’ll have to wait a little longer. Are you wondering what’s taking me so long? I was going to blame it on my very busy and important life but…
the truth is: it’s the little things that are proving to be tedious and time consuming…and intimidating.
Little things, like switching out the outlets. You see, every outlet in this house needs to be replaced. For one, they are loose and so our plugs just fall right out of them. It’s seriously infuriating to vacuum any room in this house because the plug never stays put. For two, I think the previous home owners went out of their way to make sure NOTHING MATCHED. For example, the guest room:We are half way done updating these. There was a phone jack and cable route I had to cap with paintable plates (top two right). We already switched out one successfully (bottom right) but the rest of the room is an eye-crossing assorted mix. Of course switching these out hasn’t been straight forward either because they were originally installed incorrectly so we have to snip some wires and pray there is enough slack to put in a new one. It’s a pain.
Let’s take a tour of the rest of the house, shall we?
Cats. Almond outlets, red mouths (?) and white plates. Super Scary.
So, that’s where we are at, friends. Although not as high impact or as satisfying as paint, these need to get done before my little lady becomes mobile. Outlet the old and in wit the new?
That was a stretch wasn’t it?
