I like to keep my promises. And I promised Tammy at Taylor-Made Ranch that I would share what my house looks like during a week of projects. I promised her because I featured her blog post The Truth Behind Perfect Facebook Posts at our party HERE.
Featuring her post meant I put an extra large photo of her
So to make sure Tammy's not going to send a hit out on me for splashing her kitchen photo on my blog, I've posted a few pictures of my own home, in solidarity.
On any given day, my house is in various states of disheveled because of the projects I'm working on.
1. My living room. It's winter and it's freezing and painting outside is not an options. So there's a giant blue tarp in the middle of my living room so that I can paint this little side table.
2. My kitchen. My kitchen has it all. Just look ~ band aids, bills, sunglasses, my wristlet, a car washing rag, paint brushes, and coffee.
3. My basement. Always a disaster. I currently have 257 different painting projects going on. Okay, slight exaggeration, but there are several. My tools are everywhere, and my tool box is 2 sq ft of clutter (kinda like my purse).
4. Back to the kitchen. I always have my mop and broom for company. Kids tracking in snow and salt means it's a constant battle with the floors, so why put the mop away? See that cheese board? Was stained and drying in the kitchen for days.
So Tammy from Taylor-Made Ranch is right. We all post pictures as if our homes are spotless. (Okay, maybe some bloggers DO have spotless homes, and that's great.) But for the rest of us, you see a photo of a pretty plant sitting in the kitchen windowsill next to the latest DIY vase, but if the camera was zoomed out, you'd see a sink full of dishes, the baby screaming and the dog throwing up.
Am I right?
