Craftsman Shed Nearly Complete

Wednesday, after suffering a demoralizing defeat only one day earlier, I sprang back to greatness and rehung the first of two doors, complete with new paint and freshly stained dark walnut trim. My first attempt at doing this ended with me flingin’ tools and cursing the heavens because I installed the bottom hinge first and quickly realized the door wouldn’t fit in the opening – top of the door was hitting the top of the doorway. Nice one jackass. I was then left with a bunch of holes at the bottom of my freshly stained wood that I would have to somehow conceal.

Though it’s still unfinished it’s a noticeable improvement from what it was. Still haven’t had anyone comment on it’s beauty (jerks) but my wife told me several time how great it looks. Naturally, her feedback is what matters most, though it would be nice if an “outsider” threw me some slight praise.

I got caught up in Lowe’s today ordering storm windows, a swing set, and setting up a fence installation estimate which will likely result in the purchase of a new fence which we desperately need. I also replaced a crusty old brass ceiling fan with a new oil rubbed bronze version, in our master bedroom. Didn’t get a chance to work on the shed so I’ve gotta get my act together over the next three days else I’ll be stuck with another unfinished project (#27) on my shoulders and that’s an extra burden that I’m unsure I can bear.
