Hey! I hope you had a great weekend! Just wanted to give you an update on our renovation .. it's going sooooo slow, but the painting and floor refinishing is almost coming to an end. Hopefully by Thanksgiving.
Once we finished refinishing the MBR floors, we decided to paint - that way we can finally get all of our furniture back in place and have one usable room! Right now our entire MBR and MBR closet are in the room outside the bedroom .. NOT fun stubbing my toe 4 times this week tripping over things.
So I'm definitely motivated to get the painting done so we can move back in. Last weekend we sprayed the ceiling (see my tips here) This weekend we hand painted the ceiling beams - to get in the crevices of the rough wood, caulked and put on a final coat. We also painted the wall beams. So we just have to caulk the walls, put on a final top coat (white) and paint the window trim (white).
Do you remember my to paint or not to paint post? You can see all the options I considered there.
Here's my photoshopped version of white walls and ceiling.
This weekend we also worked on the chandelier for the space, you can see the before below (after two summer's we never used the fan, thank goodness, because I reeeeeally hate fans)
and we almost finished another project, sneak peak here. Sometimes you need to finish something fun when doing the stuff that takes longer (painting) to help get you through it! Reveal next week!!
So up next for our reno is finishing the paint in the MBR and at least partially reconfiguring the closet to make the space more usable - before we move our stuff back in (we have plans for a new door too!) You can see the before in our before in our upstairs house tour
On an unrelated note, we have a VERY persistent woodpecker attacking our wood house. It isn't scared of much .. any thoughts on how to keep it away?? I'd appreciate it!
Hope you have a great week friends! See you on Wednesday for another #blogging101!
