Here we are another week into this project and I thought I’d report a progress update for all of you that are following along.
There are two huge holes in the drywall and a sliced open section going across the panel. Oh! And the black spray painted line along with the dollops of paneling glue. It was a mess.
This took a few days to scrape, patch and sand.
Just a side note. When I say something takes a few days, what I mean to say is it really only takes a few hours but because we work full time we are doing this project in the evenings or a little in the morning before work. So what could just take an hour or two with that…that translates into the hour after ‘Lost’ or the 6am hour of ‘Fox and Friends’ in the morning…or as it was this morning ‘The Face of Jesus’ on the History Chanel.
I wish it would go faster. We actually have a deadline. We need to get this room done by Monday April 5th! That’s in less then a week! Yikes!
We got a call last week from Rotary and they are ready to move their exchange student over to our house. We signed up to be a host family last summer (for their 3rd phase) and circumstances are such that she needs to move earlier then expected for us. We figured we’d have until mid to late April. We are excited to yet once again be a host family but man how time is flying! It’s always an adventure around here!
These last two shots are of the West wall and the North wall completely papered and painted, ready for the trim. I checked this morning and there’s still some patchy spots so some touch up will be needed but that’s it! The walls look soooooo much better!
Yes. That is all my crap in the closet.
Fear not. I’ll deal with it later. I’m sure your closet doesn’t look any better!
