Not during Hurricane season

You would think that after living here for so long I would know better than to start a DIY project in the summer because it is our rainy season. I didn't give it a second thought when I decided it was time to revamp the DVD cupboard. Everything went swimmingly for one hour and then it rained and it hasn't stopped since.

I have had an unruly stack of DVD's and CD's in the middle of the living room for way too long. I have had a cupboard with no doors on it for way to long and so today was going to be the day come hell or high water. I had an unexpected work call this morning but after that it was, "game on".

I'm done. It did rain and I cursed like a sailor and dragged everything inside but no sooner had I done that it stopped again so I cursed like a sailor and dragged everything back out again.

I have a new love. Rustoleum, primer and paint in a satin finish, I just wish it didn't smell so bloody awful. I could never be a junky the smell of things just make me gag. I was outside in the wide open and it still got to me...stinky stuff that. But, it is so freakishly easy and dries so fast. I am not a patient person and I really hate waiting for paint to dry and when I stain furniture waiting about kills me so this is my new go to tool. Whatevertookmesolong.

It isn't 100% dry but it is all put back together and just waiting to be loaded up again.

I have never known anything have so many screws in the hinges, EVER
hmm, the hardware looks crooked so i just checked and it isn't. I must have been when I took the photo. Blame it on the bloody fumes.
Now I just have to load it up and find something different to put on top of it. Buddha won't show anymore cos he is black. maybe I can call him camo-buddha.

 Next job...paint the living room. Hmm, I wonder if I can do that it in a day. Oh hell yes!

I don't know how you can do it on the heat. It looks fantastic! I have all my DVDs in a folder. That way they don't take up space
