The alarm buzzed in my ear at 5:15 a.m. I’m still sick, but I’m going in!
Therefore, I took about three more minutes and then rolled right out of bed. I headed to the computer (because that’s what all tech-addicted people do when they wake up in the morning) to check my e-mail. Then, it occurred to me, I bet the paint is dry enough on my stencil… Therefore, after reading what my cousin wrote on my Facebook Wall, I skulked into the bathroom and grabbed a small step stool from the adjacent storage closet. I placed it near the door and ascended the two steps. I began to carefully peel away the tape that was keeping the stencil on the wall. Slowly, but surely, every piece was off. I removed the stencil and was pretty happy with the results, thankful that the paint was dry and that I didn’t mess it up royally by taking the pink stencil down quite a few hours too early.
Satisfied with the results, I went to my desk, grabbed a cough drop, to calm my sore throat, and retrieved my camera. I returned to my guest bathroom and took this photo, happy to have something to break up the white wall.
Maybe I’ll stencil the same thing over the other doorway that leads to the bathroom storage closet next weekend. Maybe, maybe not…
