Well That Didn’t Go As Planned

I had plans for the weekend. Big plans. Alas, things didn’t happen as I planned.

My big goal for the weekend was to find, strip, and repaint the closet doors to my daughter’s old bedroom. Well, I found the doors. Unfortunately because they were stored outside, the wood started separating. I considered scraping the doors, then I priced them out. 56 dollars each panel. I’d need two. Yikes.

Instead, there was an investment in gorilla glue and some time in the garage finding the clamps. We have about half the panels glued back down. Once one door is glued back, we’ll sand instead of strip the old paint off (this is necessary because the previous paint job is peeling). Then repaint the doors and hang them.

Which leads to part two of the closet door adventure. I have to find the track that goes on top and then the pivot hinges for the bottom. That involves a day in the garage. Or more. Heck, I think this is fate’s way of telling me to clean the garage. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t take long to find the parts.

Funny, how the universe laughs at the plans mere mortals make.

Until next time.
