A couple of weeks ago I was all excited because we'd taken a production design class at the YouTube Space here in New York. I have big plans for three of our rooms, all of which will benefit the show and make our backgrounds more fabulous. However, fabulousness seems like a distant dream at this moment. We've started with the bedroom, since we want to use it in our upcoming music video. The walls have been covered with matchstick blinds for almost 14 years. We tried to paint when we first bought the house, but the walls rejected paint like petulant children, so we hid them with the blinds and went for a "Gilligan's Island" effect. Well, it's time for a change and this time we need to face the horrible paint job. At least we know what we're doing now and are armed with the correct primer, etc. But we have a lot of work to do, as you can see. I'm trying to keep my eyes on the prize. And a couple of cocktails won't hurt a bit. Quitting time!
