Thought I would finally add a few pics to the ol' blog. Since I've been talking about all of this work, thought I would post some pics for you all to ogle. LOL
We also started on the bath downstairs. I can't seem to get the pic off of my phone... AARGH. I will take one with the darn camera later. Essentially it is the same process. The main difference being no door to fill in which took FOREVER because I am no pro at drywall. So, mudding and sanding is a long ordeal. Then I also had to patch the ceiling which turned out ok, but not great. But then again, where the pros did it in the kitchen you can still sorta tell. So, for doing it myself it is ok. It's the one thing I wish I had more experience with. The first attempt was in our closet and I plan on scraping that and re-doing it. It's livable, but we want to put another light in there so might as well fix it while we are at it. I know it's just a closet, but... I'm sorta picky! If the bathroom ends up bugging me, I'll do something there, too! HA!
As you can see, we've been busy. In that mix we have the kids, Reunion, cats to vet, flea issues, and neighbor issues and car issues. No, not bad neighbor issues! LOL Just that their van tore up and we had wanted to help with rides and stuff. Nothing major. Just typical daily blips. Car issues were simple -- just needed new brakes. But just an example of a super busy week per the usual with projects on top. I will confess.... housework went to the wayside for a bit so we spent most of Monday doing that! I need to do more, but I am taking today off. I'm worn to a nub! Anyways, will add more pics later. I should quit going on and on and on!
