We have a window in our shower, and during the four years that we've lived here, the spraying water has taken a toll on the trim around the window. Yuck.
It was starting to look really awful and I had mentioned to Steve several times in the past that I'd like him to fix it. Steve has a lot of wonderful qualities, but since starting and finishing home improvement projects is not one of them, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Now, home improvement is definitely not my area of expertise. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I even have an area of expertise, but doing projects around the house is for sure my area of bumbling around cluelessly. Still, after talking to a couple of helpful gentlemen at Lowe's and then purchasing a few items, I set to work on the window. I sanded it all down, then applied spackle over all the rough spots. Once that was dry, I sanded again, then applied two layers of paint. Voila!I did all this yesterday, but didn't mention it to Steve because I wanted to surprise him. He noticed it this morning, and was apparently less than impressed. He said that I did it wrong, but whatever. I'd much rather have something done less than perfectly than not done at all. I am still proud of myself and happy that the window looks so much better than it did.
