Day Four

Day Four

Whew! I spent the day working on the new room.

I textured the walls, painted trim, cut, painted the ceiling and door (Painting doors is my LEAST favorite painting job).

I didn’t want to deal with renting a texture gun, so I decided to design my own texture pattern. This can be dangerous. Sometimes these ideas work great and sometimes (most times) they don’t. I say this because I want to stress that I mess this stuff up all of the time. But it’s no big deal. Just scrape it off and do something else. Don’t be afraid to try!

But I think my texture job is turning out great. I’ll post more on that later.

I just have a few pictures to post before I hit the sack. I’ve got to get those walls primed and painted tomorrow. Plus we’re hoping to get the floor in tomorrow afternoon.

It’s getting so close…..we’re very excited.

I still need to add a trim piece below the window sill. But I want to wait until I finish the walls.

Here’s something that made the whole job a little easier. The front porch had a bead board ceiling already on it. So I just scrubbed it and painted it. It’s perfect.

It seems so odd to me that for the past 85 years that bead board was outside and now…it’s part of the inside of the house. You just never know where something will end up, huh?

That’s my deep thought for the day. Free of charge and just for you.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.
