You Know You're A Home Improvement Enthusiast When...


...you open your refrigerator and in the place where food should be you see paint brushes instead. (Wrapped in a Target bag no less.)

The above is a draft I wrote months ago while in the midst of the Kitchen Redesign, but never posted.

I was reminded of this draft yesterday when Karla at It's The Little Things That Make A House A Home posted a link to Beth's post, Top 10 List For Decor Bloggers: Must Read. You know you are a true decor blogger if...

I clicked over to see what Karla had found so amusing. Yes, definitely laugh worthy, particularly number 6! (You have contorted your body into crazy and dangerous positions and perhaps even perched on top of furniture in order to get a good picture of an inanimate object.)

At the end of the post Beth asks if she left anything out, what would you add to the list? Well encountering paint rollers and brushes in a place one usually finds food of course, that is what I would add.

What is in your home that you would need to add to such a list?

  1. That is too funny. I would worry about getting paint on my hands when I went for a late night snack...

  2. That picture is priceless. I've had a few paint brushes in Ziploc bags in my refrigerator over the years.

  12. The brushes in the fridge thing is new to me, but sounds like a popular idea! I usually wrap mine in a plastic bag, leave them in the garage, forget about them, and buy new ones. I'm lazy like that...

  13. As soon as I saw this post I made Will come over and read it for himself! There is power in numbers and the fact that your fridge looks just like mine meant that I could say "SEE! It's not just me!" :) LOVE it! Excellent addition to the list!
