Today has been a good day. I had the chance of experiencing something new. Now for those of you who are accustom to reading my blogs I think you know that I enjoy working, working a lot in remodeling houses, fixing up the old, and bringing new charm.
Today I got the opportunity to put some drywall mud onto some old walls filled with old wall paper and holes. Now I had been shown this procedure before, but as with everything I was timid at first. Today however, I got the chance to put the mud on the walls myself.
I had a blast! I wanted to video the process, but quite honestly I could not, for my hands were covered in mud up to my elbows. Putting drywall mud on walls was like icing a cake. Drywall mud is water soluble so no matter how much you get on the floor it will come up easy. It feels like super soft playdough and you use a drywall knife to put it on.
I put the whole box on one wall. Oops! It wasn’t until later that I was told a whole box of drywall mud would do the whole room. 🙁 I am so grateful that my husband has a sense of humor and was able to laugh it off. I bet the You Tube video would have been a hit. If I Could Of I Would Of recorded it for you.
Have you ever been shown how to do something in the form of work and actually enjoyed it? I am so glad I got the chance to experience this, there is nothing more fun than getting your hands dirty, in my opinion. I hope you all get a chance to explore the world and find something that puts a smile on your face! Life is great as long as you live it!
