As I was scurrying around the house making a mental list of things that need to get done before decorating for Christmas, I added touching up the baseboards. I sat looking at all of the scuffs and gouges, and started to smile. How can I paint them?
It would be like painting over the infamous “height wall”.
Anyone else walking into our house would see the endless scratches on our white baseboards, and the nicks out of door frames and kitchen cupboards. I see a masterpiece. I see years of physiotherapy, I see struggles and frustration, I see tears of sadness and joy.
Those marks were handcrafted by my boys and their walkers, as they “trained” for their greatest marathon.
How can you cover marks made with such labour?
