Taking A Risk

When I saw The Nester talking about "Take A Risk Day" I didn't think about anything that I had (really, really) wanted to do, but worried about the risk. Then this morning, I read the post for the "holiday" and still didn't think of anything.

I spent a few hours outside this morning, cleaning windows and playing with Maggie and Ellie. We came in tired, hungry and ready for a little inside play time. I put both girls down for a nap and was surprised to find that Maggie went to sleep too. Before I knew it, I was in the bathroom painting the "hope chest" that I'd had for years.

Suddenly, I was participating in the holiday and had never thought I would.

Our master bathroom is my sanctuary. It is the only place that I have alone time. Of course, there's also lots of little girls playing in there time, too. I lock the door on Sunday mornings so that I can get ready for church without interruption. I take a shower after Maggie and Ellie are asleep and enjoy the peace and quiet. And, the chest was really heavy and the bathroom seemed like the perfect place to start painting it. I can shut the door, turn on the exhaust fan and not have to worry that someone will play in wet paint.

I have a coat of Kilz on it and I'll try to paint it tomorrow, but it may not happen until Thursday.

I already had the Kilz and the paint was a free sample from V@lspar- in Chocolate Turtle. Right now my biggest is risk is having an angry husband. If he gets a little upset that the chest is in our bathroom I'm going to remind of the time that the gun safe was in our foyer. For days.

We've been outside too so hopefully Andrew will go to bed tonight willingly. Can't wait to see the finished chest!

I just love big ol' chests like that. I have one that belonged to Grandma & Grandpa. Maxton thinks it's a pirate's treasure chest!!:) Good Luck painting, can't wait to see it all finished!
