I am well aware that I say, "I know it has been a while" on every post I do lately...
We are working as fast as we can if that counts for anything?!?
These pictures were taken a little over a week ago. I would have taken more this weekend but I highly doubt you would be able to notice a difference since I spent 12 hours straight on Saturday caulking, sanding, and wiping down trim to prep for paint.
They aren't very noticeable changes so my Mom & I had to keep reminding ourselves that prep work pays off when the paint goes on. Sometimes you just have to give yourself pep talks to get you through the not so fun stuff...or dessert works just fine too :)
|Cabinets are now installed, sanded, caulked, and ready for me to prime!|
|Crown moulding is up, walls are textured, primed, and windows are trimmed out.|
|If it makes anyone feel better, I did finally take all the stickers off this door this weekend too!|
|The bathroom is now framed up in the garage.|
|Bathroom is now textured, primed, bathtub is installed, and boards in the floor have been replaced.|
Hooking up all the plumbing for the shower was/is the ultimate marriage tester...
We survived (so far) but I'm not sure we enjoyed it and Nathan swears we will hire someone next time.
|Concrete is poured and stained in laundry room. Unfortunately there was no attempt to keep the floor clean while they textured, taped & floated. Hopefully it all comes up with no problems!|
Plans for the coming week(s):
- We sprayed all the ceilings tonight so we can at least say something is finished being painted!
- Tomorrow we are planning to spray all the trim with oil-based primer...not too thrilled about that.
- Going to Ikea on Thursday to get the butcher block counter tops!
- Refinishing the wood floors is on the agenda for this weekend.
- Then, I can start painting walls & installing fixtures!
It's all starting to come together---praise Jesus!!
I told Nathan we were finally getting the fun part.
His response, "Yeah, the end!!"
