It has been a long weekend. Not just because Friday was Christmas, either! Here are some before pictures:
The dark-colored corner is where the TV will be. The door to the right is the bathroom door.
There is touch up that must be done, as there is with any amateur paint job, but we thought we'd wait until the workmen leave, as they might cause minor damage that needs to be fixed.
I'm not in a hurry to do any more painting! I could hardly move on Saturday night after working all day. I keep saying it, but I can't wait until this project is done. The plan is that the work will be done by New Year's, as the contractor has to start another job on January 4. The floor has to be installed in the bedroom and TV areas; the electrical needs to connected to the breaker box, and all the outlets and switches installed; all the moulding (baseboard and door) must be cut and nailed in place; the DVD rack will be placed in the wall opening; the doorknobs inserted; and anything else I've forgotten. Finish work seems to take lots of time. I do not know how people endure big remodeling jobs without losing their sanity.
