Hello, lost Victoria's Secret slipper! Now, where is the other one? So sorry for the terrible pics, this closet is a small lightless hole. And it's been this way since we moved in 4 years ago. Inside, it was even nastier.
Lots of plaster was falling away and it was just a flaky, terrible mess. The floor under the carpet is almost black with old damage. I did make Shaun scrape the worst of it, use some joint compound to spackle the walls smoother, then sand the next day. I realize that is the cheater way to fix crumbling plaster, but when you're ready to deliver a baby, you're just trying to GET IT DONE. While waiting for the walls to dry I got busy with all the trim in the closet, using Behr Ultra Pure White in satin, our go-to trim paint.
And finally, I painted the walls with Behr Antique White, which is in all our hallways and is a lighter color than the walls in this room. This was really fun to do with my belly since the closet is barely wider than a hanger!
I neglected to take a pic of the inside to show you how nicely the damaged walls turned out, because that is where I immediately shoved some suits and dress shirts that
have no hope of fitting into I don't currently wear. Just trust me, it looks nice. I added back some accessories to make it easy for regular guests (like my in-laws) to store junk, or clothes, whatever.
In other news, my due date was yesterday and I am not dilated or thinned at all. My cervix apparently doesn't know how this thing works. I am now scheduled to be induced Monday night and I'm desperately hoping to avoid that! Here I am on D-day, other than some extra pressure 'down there' I'm feeling really good.
My BP is great, baby's heartbeat is great, no swelling, no weight gain, no issues. I started my maternity leave from work today to finish everything around the house and be completely ready, hopefully that and walking a lot will get things going naturally. Wish me luck, and if you were ever induced without dilating first, I'd love to hear your story! To me it sounds like a very long labor that my body just isn't ready for, but my doctor is insisting it's the right decision. Blah.
