It’s been a while, here is an update though. There has been a lot of ‘other stuff’ going on the last couple weeks but I did manage to get a little bit done. Tonight I textured the walls, they look awesome! I was surprised how fast it went and how easy it was. I originally had planned on doing smooth walls, turns out it takes a lot more skills than I have to make that look good. Texture is a convenient way to cover all the inconsistencies. AND, as a bonus, its the same as my families texture at home so it feels more ‘homey’ already!
This weekend I am going to paint the walls, and either start in on the tiles or the window trim. Either way it is going to take a little more money and I am running a bit short on that these days! Turns out broken backs are expensive… who knew? I will work it out though and forge on!
Heres to hoping the world doesn’t end in just under 7 hours, everyone have a fun and SAFE holiday! Here are some pictures:
Guess who’s going to be in a movie! 🙂 Merete mailed me the release form (please edit the dumb stuff I say out 🙂 )
Nate got a dedal on a new spray texturer and I am who gets to benifit, imagine that!
Test spray on an extra sheet of drywall
This is after the first spray, I thought that was bad, man that job is messy!
This is about 70% done, a shower has never felt as good as tonight!
I was able to tape up the openings earlier this week. Worked out great to just come home and texture after work.
I started in the loft and worked my way to the other end.
It was dark befor I even started, I textured by light of this lamp, hopefully it still looks ok in natural daylight.
I got my tile in, I still haven’t opened it so for those of you who can’t remember what it lookes like it will be a surprise to come soon!
Moving the tile to the shop…
I was also able to make some Christmas Chocolate for some people (not all of the ones I wanted to make it for, turns out standing on tile for a while hurts my back…
He’s an orcha!
