so… with my hubby sleeping when I get home every night and my being loathe to disturb his slumber I haven’t been able to work on step one. Feeling somewhat guilty, I got up this morning and just before heading downstairs, I took ten minutes and patched the hole. I bought the repair kit shown above, but didn’t end up using it. Just filled it in and let it sit. Wow. How motivating one tiny little thing can be. Now I can’t wait to get home and do some painting!!
