DIY project going... slowly

And the little brush on the right side is the culprit!

You know, my mom bought big brushes and even 2 rolls to paint the walls. She hated the effect of the rolls on the walls. The big brushes are... too big for her. Soooo.... she has been painting with an old 3 inches brush! Now you know why my mom has not finished yet.

Aaaand what started with just painting the walls went to some other projects... and the mess is still here...

Helping my mom to get rid of a plastic cap belonging to a spray can...

Working hard on it...

Am I doing a good job, mom??

Now... what is this for??


I can't wait for the day everything is going back to normal in my house!

Have a good night


♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Your Mom is like our Mom's Dad - he always painted the walls completely with a brush - he hated the rollers. And Mom says he always did a great job. Be careful with that plastic cap, Lorenza - don't eat it, just chew it up. Ciara can tell you that it isn't always a good thing to eat stuff:(

Hope the DIY project wraps up soon.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Bocci said...

Yes, hope your home gets back to normal soon, Lorenza-in the meantime, you're still adorable:-)!

Wyatt said...

Good Job Lorenza! Our house is always a DIY project in the making....we know how you feel!


Benny and Lily said...

I hope it's over soon! Try to give her the cold nose poke! That helps me!


Frankie Furter said...

Lorenza you did your pawt quite well. That Cap certainly needed to be..gotten rid of.
I'm thinkin' that your mom should have let you dip your tail in the paint and help her brush that paint on the wall.
It will be beautiful when it is finished.

Lola said...

It's going to take a while that way, no doubt about it. I wish I could help. I think my tail would make a pretty good paintbrush and Franklin would probably be willing to help you get rid of some of those plastic tops if you got behind in that.

I think we're going to be living with projects for a long time here, too. Just because the old folks move kind of sloooowly.

lotsa licks, Lola

Stella said...

Hi Lorenza!

Your home will be bewootiful when your Mom finishes painting. My Mom needs to paint too, but she has a sprained arm and cannot do it right now. So we wait!


TwoSpecialWires said...

We don't even remember what "normal" is in our house any more. We just look around everyday and wonder.

Oh! We talked to OurGirl tonight, and she said the knotted bracelet from your mom was wearing thin (she wore it every day and night ever since she got it), and, to keep it safe, she took it off tonight. She said it made her kinda sad ... but the beads and strings are now safe on her bulletin board.

Just wanting you to know ...
Jake and Fergi (with love0

The Animal Doctor said...

Awww Lorenza! We truly empathize with your situation. We are not happy when the Secretary does a DIY project too, coz it takes forever for her to finish! LOLS

Sounds like a lot is going on at your end. We would definitely like to see the finished result.
Be careful Lorenza, that cup may give u a tummy ache, Just don't swallow it okies?
So nice of you to help.

We know because Mummy uses that thing too, though not for our clothes!!

I am super glad you are being such a helpful pup, assisting your Ma with the stray caps.

Hopefully your a will carry on all hours of the night with her 3 inch brush and have your place back to normal asap.

Happy Monday

Piappies World said...

Hi Lorenza!

We always leave the painting job with our hu-Uncle. Piappies Mom can only paint her nails - toenails that is.

Helping out with plastic covers can be lots of fun!

We do hope the paint job is over and do give your Mom lots of licks and hugs too. =)

Sam said...

Mom doesn't like the rollers either, but recently helped repaint the visitor center and admin building at the park. She found out if you get a long pole, it goes so much easier. If they hadn't given her one, she would be painting with a brush too!


Three Dogs Long said...

They say the best things in life are worth waiting for, Lorenza! We just know it's going to be beautiful when your Mom finishes!

Can't wait to see pictures!

((Hugs)) your friends

Marg said...

It sure looks like you did a great job on that top. We hope you didn't eat any of it by mistake. We can't wait to see the results of your Mom's hard work. Hang in there, she will be done some day.
Have a great week.

Madi and Mom said...

The work of a Doxie is never done.
Lorenza maybe you should pack up a few dresses and head over to your local Hampton Inn to stay for the duration of this project.
Hugs Madi

Mack said...

I thinks your doing a excelent job helping your Mom with clean-up. But you be careful chewing the plastic caps, they are bad news for your tummy!

It will be over soon and you can both admire the fruits of both of your labors!

BRUTUS said...

Wow, your mom is MUCH more ambitious than mine - she hung a little shelf the other day and you think she'd built the Great Pyramids or something! ANd we think you are doing a fabulous job on that cap - we'll come & help is she has more that need managing!!

K-9 Katastrophe said...

Aww your a good little helper!


Mayzie said...

Your mom sure is industrious-like, Lorenza! And you're doing a great job helping to recycle that lid. Very eco-furendly of you.

My paws are crossed that your mom gets everything finished up and back to normal soon!

Wiggles & Wags,

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Lorenza, what a lot of hard work!
We are so pleased you are helping your mom - otherwise she would never be finished.
We hate anything new being done - why can't humans just leave things the way they were!

Jemma the Chihuahua said...

Lorenza, your mom has a lot of skills to be painting with such a small brush and we are happy to see you helping! My mom is not handy at all and could never paint a room, any room...

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Our Mom always ends up doing the same thing. Starting one thing and then moving onto another. Don't worry she will get it all back to normal before long... Mom calls it multi-tasking..

It's always amazing how these jobs can go on much longer than expected ...

We hope your Mom gets finished soon!

take care

Kari in WeHo said...

slow and steady wins the race, right? even in cases like this?


ocmist said...

We can sympathize! Usually when Grammy gets a wild hair and decides to really redo something, it takes 6 times longer than she thought it would. Stuff always comes up to sidetrack her. We hope that things get back to normal soon for you, Lady Lorenza. The CCC
