The Hole Truth

We stood in the store together and I went in to full lawyer mode.

Four years of collegiate debate not for naught, I stared at him over the lid of my latte and assessed the situation. I weighed the alternatives, carefully considered his counterproposals and well thought-out addendums....but in the end, I stood firm on my position. And I wasn't going to budge.

But Mary. Be reasonable. We would have to cut a hole....in our WALLLLLLLLL.

And he dragged out the last word like it WAS the last word on the issue. And I can understand why. For two people who only recently got walls, you would think I would be a little more hesitant about punching holes in them.

But like my husband....if you thought that, you would be wrong.

See, I had seen the promised land of digital thermostats and there was no convincing me otherwise. Because let's face it...when it comes to the cool factor, a thermostat that sits sleek & flush against your wall is to a box that just hangs there what The Office is to Parks & Recreation. The real deal v. a boxy, awkward knock off. Ooooh...I just said it! And boy does that feel good! :)

So there you have it. The real story behind the very first hole in our new walls.

The hole truth. And nothing but the truth. Amen.









Before you go getting all jealous of our new, shiny digital thermostat (which will be fully installed once the painting is done)....don't be. We are, after all, still living with exposed wires hanging down from the ceiling. Yep, we are as far from Fergie and the Glamorous as you can possibly get. :)



And speaking of paint....it's going ON as we speak!! Stay tuned for the first in our very exciting Before & After series in the next day or two!





So I ask you, what is your favorite DIY story??
