Over the weekend reno update

Friday and Saturday were busy reno days here too.

Most of what was done was drywalling and wall/ceiling texture.

The sitting room is going to be painted as well, I think I mentioned that. We took off the chair rail (if you remember, it was dark green below) and the top was white knockdown. That's a kind of texture- which I didn't know the name of till just recently! The bottom of the wall was done in the same texture, and once it was dry, you couldn't tell the difference.

The knockdown- I don't know if you can see it well enough- if you click on the photo, it will display larger.

Not quite dry, but the green is gone and the whole wall is textured.

The drywall is all done and the texture on the kitchen walls and ceiling too.

The light beam is done and will be wired like a track- without the track.

So, lots of work, but not lots to see. And LOTS of mess, holy cow. I feel like we are eating dust! When people warned me about it, I had no idea... it gets everywhere!!! lol

My biggest challenge has been my lack of ability to get into the fridge at will. I need to plan better...

We are very excited- today the cabinets are being put in. They are beautiful! I will be back later today or tomorrow morning with another post to catch you up!
