We decided to just do beadboard. As much as I would have loved a tile backsplash, money and time prevented such a thing.
And then Easton performed a few projects of his own. This nice project took place on our bathroom wall with some white paint I had been using. Lovely artwork isn't it? I was hoping to add a little something to our walls. Easton knew just what I wanted.
Quirk #1. My Bed. The first thing I do when I wake up is make my bed. I can't leave the house unless it's made. The only exception to not making the bed daily is when I am sick. I also have to change the sheets weekly and must have clean feet to get into bed. I wash my feet every night or change my socks before getting into bed. It drives me crazy if I think they are the slightest bit dirty. Also, if you are in your day clothes and get in between the sheets I can't handle that. Think of the germs you sat in throughout the day and then you are bringing them to the bed.
Quirk #2. I can't stand hair growing on my arms or legs. As a result I shave my legs daily and also my arms every few days. Arm hair doesn't grow back as quickly and arms are really easy to shave. I've been shaving them for about 8 years now.
Quirk #3. I hate buying anything unless it's on sale or I have a coupon. I am constantly checking to make sure I am getting the best deal on whatever it may be. If I purchase something and then a few weeks later find a better deal I calculate the amount of money I could of saved and think about how I can do better.
Quirk #4. My shirts must be hung in my closet on white hangers and grouped by color family.
Quirk #5. I must wash my hands right before eating. If I'm out somewhere and I am unable to wash my hands before eating I play back in my mind everything I have touched and how those germs are going to be on my food. It drives me crazy. Perhaps I am a little obsessive-compulsive.
Quirk #6. I like to scare my husband. I'll hide behind doors or sneak into the house when he thinks I'm gone and then scare him real good. I once scared him so well that at the time he was brushing his teeth and accidently chipped his tooth a bit. Oops.
I would like to tag whomever would enjoy revealing the quirkiness that makes them who they are.

With an investment of $90 for paint, polyacrylic and fabric my table and buffet set now look heavenly. I love all things white. You probably noticed. You are also probably thinking I must be crazy to coat my house in white. I most likely am.
