Well another surprisingly productive weekend is in the books. I installed my “custom” wainscoting on the couch wall Saturday and had three coats of paint on it by the end of Monday. In between that was alot of filler, sanding, caulking, and taping. I know everyone loves progress pictures so here we go. Excuse the horrible camera angles, the massive couch and chair are now in the middle of the room as they have no where else to go until they are sold (on craigslist now!).
Hopefully a few final touch-ups tonight and we will be ready for the new furniture to show up. I’m thinking that the existing couches will be gone by Sunday and the new ones showing up the following week…so I may have nothing to sit on for a week. Oh well.
Also accomplished was the start of the patio cleanup for this season. I did some plumbing work Sunday to connect the hose bib on the patio and everything seems to work great. I think we are going to coat the patio with something to make it look new. I also want to get some commercial grade string lights to go over the patio (more on that to come).
That’s all for now. Stay tuned.
Oh and PS…doesn’t the room look so much better without that tv cabinet up against the knee wall?
