I think I made a brilliant argument, so while I washed and primed and painted and sanded and argued* and ripped, I would often think, "I should take a picture of this."
And then I would realize that between washing, priming, painting, sanding, arguing and ripping, taking a picture would just be a giant pain in my ass -- forget about taking a good picture. I give you Exhibit A:
Notice - the green looks blotchy because the chandelier is throwing weird shadows, the slate gray paint still looks wet, you can see gaps up near the ceiling, and would it have killed me to move the trash out of the shot?
And this is the best picture my phone can produce.
So while I have no pictures to share, I do have a few insights.
1. People who have a lot of pictures of projects on their blogs probably didn't do much work on them.
Likeliest scenario? Their significant other did all the heavy lifting while they snap-snap-snapped! away with their digital camera.
2. The degree to which I hate these people in the future will surely depend on how I currently feel about my own projects.
Case in point: I am currently covered with green, gray and white paint that doesn't seem to want to wash off no matter how much I shower.
So everyone who was "inspired" by the Anthropologie/Pottery Barn/Restoration Hardware/Urban Outfitters catalog, then ordered their husbands to purchase these various and sundry items to artfully arrange them while they took pictures for posterity/witty captions/compliment bait? They can go straight to hell.
But next week, when this is all finished?
I imagine the worst I will feel will be mild annoyance, and at best mild admiration.
