I decided that I would put the Clomid away and go back to my tried and true Vitex to ovulate. I have had a pregnancy using it in the past, though it didn't end well. I figured what could it hurt?... if I don't ovulate I'm on the Clomid next month anyway. If I do ovulate...yay for me!! I'm gonna take it for seven days and hope for the best.
I started by removing all of our books, and other crap that seems to congregate there despite my best efforts, and the shelves.
I gathered all my materials: leftover paint, painter's tape, a brush, a drop cloth and a ladder...because I'm vertically challenged and this bookcase is way taller than me. Next, I taped off the areas I didn't want to get paint on...
El Hubster came home from work around this time and promptly stated, "I ain't painting Nothin' tonight!"
I have a tendency to take on home improvement projects at the most inopportune times and this drives El Hubster crazy. But he did bring me this!
I left the bookcase alone for a minute and got back to it this past weekend. I remembered a nice roll of gift wrapping paper I'd purchased with the bookcase in mind and decided that I would wallpaper the back of the bookcase instead of painting it. I'm your typical mercurial Gemini that needs to be able to change things at a moment's notice so I knew paper was better than paint in this case. I stuck it on with some double sided mounting tape.
Finally it all came together! I love how painting this bookcase has actually brightened up our living room...anything to dispel the gloom is just so worth it.
My next project will be to paint our dining table....It's this set from Ikea...pretty basic and super blah..
I'm probably going to faux dip the chair legs using Washi tape a la
Have you heard of Washi tape!? That thing is bananas...so many different variations, so easily changeable.
Not sure what color yet maybe white to match the table..which I'll be doing this to...
I'm off to pee on a stick to see if I'm ovulating or about to be...ugh
