the hair eating fan || painting adventures

Monday, May 16, 2016

I live in an old farmhouse, and over here, we like to paint things.
A lot.
As you know, I painted my room last year and since then, I've been wanting to paint my closet. So Julia and I painted it all a creamish white. (I was sick of the wood. ugh. so dark.)

After that, I decided to paint my bedstead. I was working on it, and the fan was right behind me. A strand of my hair got sucked into the fan and I pushed the fan back.
As the fan wound around again...it knocked over a full glass of water spilling ALL OVER the fan. My first instinct was to rip out the plug then tell Julia to get a towel while I shook the water out of the fan.

"What happened?" Julia grabbed the fan, dripping it all over everything in the process.
"It was eating my hair! So I pushed it back," I put my hand on the freshly, wet, painted bedstead. Then pulled it back with a wince. My hand was layered with white paint.
Thankfully, the fan was fine and everything got painted with no further...adventures.

P.S. I Love Lucy is da best show for painting

P.P.S I FINISHED ALGEBRAAAA!!


do you like changing things up by painting?
has a fan ever "eaten" your hair?

  4. Sarah, I love changing things up by painting but unfortunately I live in an apartment where we aren't allowed to paint the (very bleak and white) walls.

    And "I Love Lucy" is such a fun show. I also love the "Lucy Show", especially the episodes with Carol Burnett. :)

    Congrats on finishing Algebra! That certainly is quite a feat.

    1. aw, that's too bad. White isn't too bad, as long as you contrast it with colored furniture. One thing about white is, that is makes a space seem bigger. :D

      I watch it all the time, it's da best. I was actually just watching it again. ;)

      Thanks so much, Dani! <3

  5. Painting something can switch it up completely, make it look old or new, or however you want it, with just a little bit of paint.

    ALSO NO MORE ALGEBRA WHOOP, congratulations :D

    1. Oh, totally. And if you do light colors, it totally brightens and opens up a space. plus, painting is so fun. ;) I've got paint clothes with all sorts of paint colors on them from paint jobs. lol.

      Welll, it's done for this year. But algebra II is next. Actually, I prefer algebra over geometry. ;) haha, which do you prefer?

  9. YAYYY!!! Congrats on finishing algebra! :D
    And I thought your fan story was hilarious, although I'm sure it wasn't very funny at the time. ;) I can't say a fan has ever eaten my hair, but I do have an interesting fan story...once, my cousin's class at school decided to stick a pen in the classroom fan for no apparent reason. It immediately died. At least your fan still works! :) It could have tragically died like the one in my cousin's classroom. ;)
