Insomnia ramblings and paint

It's 4:36am and I've been awake since 1:53. What gives, brain? I even took some Nyquil. Clearly it's not working. Nyquil off fleek. Guess I'll finish this half written post from Monday.
----
I haven't ever had a Peep until this past weekend. I can't believe nobody told me how magical they are. Peeps s'mores around the fire pit while the kids play and hunt for eggs and the grown ups drink Angry Balls is Easter now, because we do Easter turnt up. 

I mean.
The Reese's was the best chocolate choice, followed closely by the cookies and cream, surprisingly.

I love Sundays. It's my day I get shit done. One of my favorite things to do is fixing up mah house because I bought it and I own it and I can. When I first bought this place after my divorce, my aunt told me to buy exactly the furniture I want and paint exactly the colors I want, because someday if I get married again and/or I live with someone (shhhh) out of wedlock, they might veto the rainbow chairs I want in my heart and I'll have to get boring chairs instead. So I bought the rainbow chairs and I hung flowers and pop art on the walls because that's what I'm into. 

I slowly pick small projects I can tackle in a day because I love the feeling of accomplishment/ hate leaving projects unfinished because I'll leave it unfinished for months until I get a wild hair on my ass and finally finish it. This is evidenced by the lone Spider-Man painted in my kid's toy room without any other super friends on the wall. 

Anyway, I painted my bathroom cabinets while watching season 3 of Veep on demand before my free HBO goes away just in time for Game of Thrones to come back (side eye, Verizon. I see your marketing ploy.). They were a standard builder cabinet color and now they're a moody gray color because I take my bathroom seriously. (No matter how I word that, it sounds weird.) 

 Befo'
My bathroom is teensy.
Good thing I lost all that weight.

After
Pardon all the shit on my counter, but that's just real life.


"Even Superheroes Brush Their Teeth" print: My friend gave it to me and I don't know where it came from.

At first I was thinking I should replace the counter with a scrap piece of granite or marble because it's so small, but I dig the contrast of the white against the dark gray. My next project will be framing the mirror and finding a creative solution to store my hair dryer, flat iron and curling iron.

Cabinet painting tips (just the tip):
- SAND THEM FIRST, SWEET JESUS. It's a pain, but do you want the paint to peel off and look janky? No. No you don't.

- I like Valspar Signature from Lowe's. Awesome coverage in one coat. I use it for most of my painting projects.

- Putting knobs on: I don't measure or anything. I do the facing doors at the same time and eyeball it. It's one of my weird talents - I'm pretty good at hanging pictures evenly and straight on the first try and stuff. Thanks, genes. Couldn't be good at rocket science or anything. Nope, but I can drill the shit out of a hole. No homo.

Now here's an adorbs picture of mine and my friend's kiddo, both smiling and looking at the camera at the same time for once.

Bros for life.
