Was Easter this weekend?
Oh yeah. Easter.
I did get to Sunday service so I know it was real but all this work in this room has made this weekend go by so so fast! I can see the light at the end of this project, finally. And it’s a good thing because our exchange student comes tomorrow!
Just like us to push the timing envelope though.
The crown molding went up over the weekend and I spent most of Friday and Saturday painting the trim.
My arm really got a workout!
Primer and two coats of paint.
We did have difficulty because the walls are so whacked out. The books and instructions make this look so easy. There wasn’t a chapter on ‘What to do if your walls aren’t perfect” so we did our best and I used my sculpting skills in the corners to fill in some gaps.
It looks really nice and we are DONE with trim! Whoo Hoo!!!
I wanted to respond to a comment on the last post in case you were wondering. This room is MY space so don’t worry, I don’t need to share it with our guest for the next three months.
We just have everything that is supposed to go in this room in the guest bedroom next door! That is why it was so critical to get this room to a point of being able to move stuff in…We Can’t get to the Guest Bedroom! Ha ha ha!
And somehow we’ve managed to get to the shower, our dressers, and get dressed! So the last step before moving everything back in was getting those cabinets into the room. HOLY COW! These things were ENORMOUS!
First off. They weigh about 2-300 pounds when totally put together and they are HUGE!. Did I mention they are huge? 4 feet across by 90-92″ tall and about 28″ deep. HUGE!
I have three but only two will fit. Hey! That reminds me…anyone need a cabinet?
We actually had to take a paddle off of the ceiling fan in order to flip it upright. We put a towel on the floor in order to slide it into position.
We just have one more to put together and then it will be load in time! I can’t wait to start sewing again! I promised about 5 people that I would finally post the Katherine Hepburn Pants finish (I think that is my readership max…but yes…I promised April so it’s coming).
I’ll update again in a few more days! The reveal should be next…
