Measure Twice, Cut Once...Nuff' Said!

Welp, yep.  Being a perfectionist really bit me in the be-hind this time....rather than finishing up the project for the big reveal today...I decided I was going to re-frame(in) the door.  Why?  Why not?!?!  There was an issue when I was trimming out the inside.  I thought a few minor adjustments could solve the issue....WRONG!...so what did I decide to do?  Rip it out...do it again!  After measuring everything out...AGAIN....cutting boards to do this door frame...AGAIN...I realized it wasn't me.  Two days wasted because the studs I was framing the door between weren't square...awesomeness.  HOWEVER, I'd already ripped apart the door.  So some of the wasted two days was spent constructing a new door.  Here's where we are now. (and yes...I just now noticed the paint drippings...awesomeness...add an extra 30 minutes.....)




DIY curtain hooks.










Here's a list of what I have to finish...
*Sand crown just a bit and give one final coat of paint. Estimated time: 20 minutes
*Caulk/fill edge of tall bookshelf...and sand...and give one final coat of paint. Estimated time: 1 hr. (hafta let the spackle dry).
*Spackle and paint (NEW) door.  (Door #3)...(X2)...sand in between...  Estimated time: 2 hrs.
*Finish two (1') trim on hand rail on stairs...spackle...sand...paint (X2)... Estimated time: 1 hr.
*Trim outside of door... Estimated time:25 minutes
*Paint wall above board and batten wall on stairs... Estimated time: 30 min.
*Paint trim above that wall...from the loft...suspending myself over the ledge like superman... Estimated time: 30 min
*Paint wall to the left of the wall that's above the B&B wall...(whatever)...Estimated time: 3 hrs...(it's a 30' wall!!)
*Paint one last coat on wall outside the door... Estimated time: 45 minutes.
*Figure out a Gallery wall layout... Estimated time....who knows at this point.

So, knowing myself as well as I do...(knowing I won't be able to work on this Wednesday or Thursday...) We are shooting for Friday.  By the hopefully my accessories from the UK will have arrived!  HINT HINT!!
