Hello! Hope you are having a lovely week. I've been doing so many projects around…
Y’all, I promise you I’ll show lots of pretty pics of my place just as soon as this closet renovation is complete. I promise! And I’m not a big promiser. And I live in the North so I don’t know who I am thinking I can say “y’all” 🙂
Hubs hates it. Drywalling that is. We discovered that in the middle of the project. Bless his heart, he has all the tools and everything but vowed to hire this out next time. On to the pics.
You saw the lath filled closet after paneling and plaster removal. I kind of liked it if you’re going for that rustic-your-closet-must-be-empty-forever kind of look. But we’re not. Thankfully.
And now we have drywall. The light at the end of the tunnel. It’s even on the ceiling.
Which we learned after the fact that you’re supposed to do the ceiling first then the walls, to hold up the ceiling. Guess who did that backwards? Oops.
The Chef is super fast at mudding. First you swipe it on.
Then you tape,
Then you mud again and again and again.
Can’t forget the sanding. We hung a drop cloth over the door to keep the dust at bay but it’s all over the room regardless. Mucho dusting is in my future.
But I am OK with that. Priming started on Monday and now I get to put the fabulous glossy blue on the ceiling. I picked one out. There is an end to this closet renovation, install is on Friday!
