Somebody Help Me!!!!

This morning I finished the other handle of the side cutters. 

Tessie immediately popped in, out of nowhere.  Grabbed them and zapped out.  I have no idea where my new handled side cutters are now...It's a good thing that I have a couple of others...But those were my favorites!
While I was finishing those, Zar painted the walls and the floor of the living room in the cottage.

True to form...I heard him yelling, "Somebody help me!!!! Get me out of here.

All four corners of the room have escape hatches.  Door, window and open back.

So what does he do?  He painted himself into the center of the room.

I see a few places that he missed anyway.  I will do the second coat.  Safer that way.

While I was looking at the living room, I was speculating on how drunk the designer of this particular house was when he did it...

I hate that thing that sticks out in the center of one wall of the living room...It's the staircase to the second floor. 

I am thinking of taking the keyhole saw to it and making a fake stairway at that end.  It's an eye sore as it is.  They couldn't even be bothered to leave the spindle part filled in on the part that goes down to the living room.  It either must be covered or taken out.  I wish I had thought of that before I installed it!

There is a second one of these on the top left corner of the ceiling, where  the roof slants down at the front of the house.  I don't think that I can do anything about that one though.

I am also considering covering the holes where the beams are supposed to be.  I think that some other kind of ceiling is in order.  I will probably have to do something to cover the spots that I fix. 

I am going back to ponder the problems at hand.  There has to be a better way......

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey. I guess if you can redo the problems with the Clockwork Cottage AFTER you have painted it, I can fix the problem I have with the
ugly front entrance to my cottage.
I just have to DO IT!

P.S. So funny that Zar painted himself in a circle!

I've heard of painting yourself into a corner, but really Zar...the middle of the room! I don't blame Tessie for taking those cutters. Love those handles!
