The name of my blog has changed to match the name of my Etsy shop Andy's Vintage Attic. The URL has not changed for the blog.

Things are coming along....

My "Andy's Nest" is not finished but
is ready for some views.  This is the area
that the guests will use.

This is my desk where I will do pricing
and other things to get items ready
to go to Andy's Attic.

Looking out the window.  My desk on the
right.  I have a nice view on a good day.

My chair will be covered in red linen.  For
those who don't know, I am a fan of red!

And a view from the door into the room.  I still
need to put more things on the walls and
tidy up a few areas.  My cat, Munchkin, has
a bed on the long table that sits against the
window. She likes to be with her mom.
(and her mom likes her to be there)

As more developes I will keep you "posted".

Until then, keep safe and smile,

Have you used one of these???

Have you used one of these?  I had a couple of
people tell me they are really great and easy to use.

Since Mr. Attic is the main painter in the family, I got
him one to try.  That was 3 rooms ago...he likes the
old fashioned way.

Yesterday I came home and decided after he had cut in
all the edges...I would paint the walls.  It took me 1 1/2
hours to do the 12x16 room.  I do not know if that is a
quick amount of time or not.  I do know it was EASY.

I never stepped on a ladder and I am only 5'3".  There
were no spills, splatter, drips, nothing.  I loved it!!!

I am now curious.....Mr. Attic says he doesn't know how long
it would take him to roll out the walls the "old fashioned" way.

Do you??  Was it quick and EASY or just EASY?
I would recommend this little gadget, but I am no painter.....

May you all have a safe and fun weekend,


ps  can someone please tell me why, when I type
out my post, it all lines up correctly and when
I publish the lines are thrown around??
