I have been painting all day. I finished up this bathroom, the hallway, some door frames, baseboards, two windows, a closet and the mud hall.
Before we started the renovation, there was just a tiny closet and no space at all here and one of two stairways down to the basement. I wish I could say it was my idea to close the stairway and also take part of the garage to make this space larger, but it was my stepdad’s idea (thank you Lage!!) Turned out great! This is the entry from the garage.
After all painting I had AW (after work) with myself. I really needed some wine today :)
Looking forward to next week, all paint is done on the first floor so now it’s time to install lights and doorknobs and finish up everything. Yeah! Me and painter Jimmie will continue in the basement. One day it will be done. I think, I mean that’s the plan… gaaa it’s going so slow!! And I don’t like slow.
I’m so in love with my renovation house. It feels like my baby :)
Today I got the kitchen painted, windows and walls. I like the way I work, I let the workers do all prep and I step in and do the fun painting :) The previous owner used oil based paint on the windows and that needs to be sanded before you add new fresh paint. Terrible, time consuming work… but it’s turning out great.
Darlington Street, lovely street name and the house is gonna be so lovely when it’s complete.
Still lots of work that needs to get done before I can put up the ‘For Sale’ sign.
I decided to paint the whole house white and I love it.
(The brick was not painted at all before).
New lights, house number, gutters, shutters and some landscaping are next on the outside to do list.
New hardwood floors are in and they now need to be sanded and stained. After that the painter will start to work on the inside. Kitchen and bathrooms and all tile needs to be installed and one hundred other things :)
It goes a little slow, but oh my, I’m so excited and it will be fab when it’s done.
