I painted the coat of Chalkboard paint onto the wall and then primed the trim. The trim didn't go up as expected so that has been put off to another day. I got everything cut for the shelves. I did need nails so I went to Home Depot. I got there at 6:45 and realized that they close at 7 on Sundays... so here I am running through the store trying to get the 1x2 I needed as well as the plywood. When checking out I realized that I left some stuff I had brought to return in the car. I ran out and noticed that they were still letting people in the front door at 7:30. Normal people would then notice that it wasn't Sunday. Not me. I completed my return and realized I forgot a few screws. I then darted down the hardware isle to grab the screws. Upon checking out again I mentioned to the cashier that they were still there and he said "we are open until 10". I asked if it was something special. Nope. ITS MONDAY. UUGGHHHHH. Then I had TONS of time. I ran back to paint and got a quart of midnight blue for my accent wall in the 'water closet'. Checked out a total of 3 times plus my return.... ONLY ME.
Got home and assembled 2.9 of 3 floating shelves. Tomorrow I will finish the last one and start sanding. Hoping to get them up by the end of the week. More pics then!
