I Got Nothing People

Really people, I got nothing to write about. It's go to work, come home and throw a nutritious supper together, try to stay awake watching the news and then watch a show or two. How exciting! I have done no sewing. I have been enjoying the nice spring weather we've been having the past couple of weeks but of course being New England, that will change. It's supposed to be cold and rainy over the weekend so there'll be some quilt related item to show next week.

But we did finish a bathroom renovation recently. I used the beadboard wallpaper that everyone in Blogland has been raving about and I gotta say, it is geat stuff. We have walls that are a bit beat up and while we did the best we could fixing them up there was still alot of bad showing. We put the wallpaper at the 5 foot level and it looks great!  
It covered a multitude of sins and it looks like real beadboard. I never would have beleived it but decided to try it anyways and I'm sold. I'll be using this again. That and all new fixtures really made this bathroom a beauty. I have no before pictures because I was too embarased at how awful it was. I don't have any after pictures of the whole thing because this is the smallest bathroom in the world. It's DH's bathroom-I have my own.
So I hope to get some sewing done soon. I get the summer off and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and boy do I need some time off. Soon, very soon.


  1. Amazing! That really does look like beadboard. I like it :-)

  2. No way! That's wallpaper? How cool is THAT, Chris!!! Dig it. Totally dig it. So really you do have something. Nothing quilty yet but as you say, it's coming and soon!!!

  3. Love that wallpaper! It looks great! I know the feeling of getting up, going to work, cooking dinner, a few TV shows and to bed - just to start over tomorrow. It is hard to fit quilting in. I am actually looking forward to a rainy weekend here in NW NJ too. LOL. Laura

  4. Hey Chris. I love bead board and have been wanting to install some in my kitchen and bathroom for years.

    I know what you mean about being busy these days...same here!

  5. I wouldn't have guessed it was wall paper. It looks great!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
