Bloody Mary Doesn’t Live Here Anymore…

Is it Any Wonder I Can't Sleep at Night?!
Is it Any Wonder I Can’t Sleep at Night?!

My immediate surroundings are a little on the macabre side. I’m speaking here of my space, my attic loft, my Belfry – where I tend to hibernate.

My own little Narnia wardrobe...

It’s a cool space – to a degree. I don’t mind having a secret panel in the wall – that part of things is pretty frickin’ groovy, but the bloody handprints on the walls have got to go.

Same with the mod green rope lights.

And the staples. Thousands of staples. Why for they’re there I don’t know, but they gotta go, too.

I’m gonna need paint. Lots and lots of paint. I’m going to put a base coat of plain white on all the wall panels, and go from there as far as a colour scheme, but before I can do that I have to take down about 200 feet of rope lights that are screw-nailed into the walls.

And then I gotta pull all those F-ing staples out.

I’ve tightly scheduled in time next Friday and Saturday to get the walls “paint-ready”. A pair of pliers, a bottle of rum, and about 4 hours oughtta do the trick…

I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Shit. The last tenant sure had the odd issue, eh? (Shudder) I’m guessing you are midway through the re-vamp as I type – can’t wait to see the “after” picture. Oh, I simply LOVE that random quote of Ruby’s.. haaaaaaaaaaaaa!

  2. Grim, isn’t it? Halfway through?! ROTFL! Yeah, okay. We’ll go with “half-way” through.

    One of my Twitterbugs, @leahmesaid , mentioned a Ruby one-liner and inspired the Random Ruby box.
