The Madness Continues
Remodel woes. Everyone told me I'd be tearing out my hair. Actually, now that most of the lumber and construction debris have been removed from my hall and kitchen, I'm breathing easier. I love the new white beaded board wainscoting in the hall with the pristine new mottled beige paneling above the wainscoting. That's a picture of the hall, on the left. I'm sorting through my artwork, trying to decide which pictures I'll be hanging on the walls above the wainscoting. The hall will be my informal art gallery, since I have so much wall space.
I have painted or varnished miles and miles of trim and molding, and last night I stained and varnished (6 coats of varnish!) the oak that will be used as windowsills for the new windows in the Craft Room and the Rose Room. (Okay, so they're spare bedrooms turned into a craft room and a sewing room!)
And next week we begin the expansion of the laundry room and the kitchen. I'm excited and scared. The exterior walls of both rooms will be demolished (that's my job!), so we'll have to make sure the weather will be nice, since I'll be exposed to the Great Outdoors.
I'm retired from freelance editing and living the good life. I love not working for a living! I live on a small farm in rural western Washington State where I reside with my dogs, cats, and horses. I have a warped sense of humor and I'm joyously silly most of the time.
