~ Brown and White Toile Table ~

It's another dreary day here today, with the past few posts being all about the reno going on I thought I would give that subject a bit of a break  It is oh so close for phase one of the reno to be shared, not quite, there are still a couple of finishing touches I need to make before the reveal. 

I decided

Finishing the Sheet Rock

It is officially winter around our neck of the woods, extreme cold temperatures and last night more snow and a bit of ice. Shoveling snow is not at the top of my bucket list, however last night and again this a.m. that little chore had to be done, as I type this post it looks like someone popped a feather pillow and light snow is once again coming down.

Covering Up The Skylights

Through out the process of the small reno Miss Scooter is not far behind, sometimes under foot more than she needs to be. My sweet Scooter will be 11 next month and has been through a lot these past couple of years, now the poor thing is almost completely deaf. I know it must be hard on her, equally as hard on me, I'm used to talking to her and her respond in some type of fashion. Now all I get is those beautiful brown eyes starring at me, I often wonder what in the world she's thinking about, she is without a doubt one of the best companions a gal could have.

It's Official! All the Pop Corn Ceilings Are Gone!

Looking back over the last couple of weeks it's hard to believe this is the way things looked around here. I know it looks pretty sad, and believe me when I tell you it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. You know the old saying it gets worse before it gets better. All 10 rooms of popcorn ceilings are officially gone! Yippee Skippy!!!!

Remodel Continues, Progress Is Being Made

It's hard to believe I began my adventure a year ago this week, the adventure of scrapping popcorn off ceilings. It's come along way around here, even with taking the summer months off from the task I'm quite proud of where things stand today. 

The scrapping of ceilings is still a work in progress, in fact it's progressing quickly. This is a short hallway that leads to the guest bedroom. Crown molding was attached properly, nail holes were filled (I'm becoming quite adapt at filling the holes quickly and accurately) and a coat of polyurethane was applied. The chandelier was raised almost 4 chain links to make this part of the ceiling appear taller. I've become this person who doesn't really like things hanging over her head.
