While we were gone the awful popcorn ceiling was removed and a new knockdown ceiling put it its place.
Such an improvement!
We opted to save some change and paint the new ceiling ourselves.
It seemed like a really good idea
until our 50+ year old necks and arms started to complain.
A few Advil later and we were good for some more DIY --
removing the carpet on the stairs
putting the microwave back up
cutting in and covering knots with primer
covering more knots
and filling holes with wood filler
priming the knotty pine walls
and filling more holes
and sanding some more
(which we will cover in another post)
We're plugging away at this HUGE project which has MANY little projects and steps.
Mr. D is using his crazy PMP (Project Manager Professional) skillz and schooling
so we can act as our own general contractor --- saving us some serious cashola!
