I had this moulding sitting in my garage for about 5 months. It's some pretty thick & chunky stuff, so this cost more than my usual projects at $60. Life is busy, and so the project started collecting dust. I knew I was capable of doing it, I mean, really, how hard could it be? I let myself get sucked into thinking: "I can't do it with a baby and 4 year old at home right now." I realize I have been letting myself say that dirty word all too often: Can't. So that gave me the resolve to "git-er-done." [During nap time and a movie]
I had never used the miter saw before and my hubby was at work, and I wanted to surprise him. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the instruction manual:-( I had to call him twice: once to figure out how to unlock the blade from the safety position (duh!--but actually hard to find that thing if you don't know what you're looking for), and then again to slide the blade to the correct angle you want (you have to loosen the handle and then tighten it again). Finally, after being embarrassed about having to call for help, I got guts back to tackle this project, it was pretty smooth sailing.
Here's my beautifully cut corners all laid out, ready to get glued to my kids bathroom mirror for the bathroom makeover I've been working on. [In front of my sweet swagger wagon-that's how I roll]. It's pretty liberating for me to tackle projects on my honey-do-list. I highly recommend it.
