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.
was re textured after the doorway was closed in, more about that in just a wee bit.
HERE. You can see the shape of the doorways before they were expanded as well as the post that set on the end of the island to hide all of the wiring. The wall to the right of the closed in doorway was once a pantry. After the demo the wall was exposed and looked as though some one had an attitude and beat the tar out of the wall, (happy to report as of this post that's all repaired and you no longer see what a bad job the builders did).
