We are in the middle of a remodel. A growing bigger all the time remodel. We really ARE trying to find a place to stop! It started with two goals. The booth we used for sitting at the dining table was worn out and due to a dishwasher leak the flooring that has needed to be replaced was now a priority.
First, the booth. Checked around to see about recovering it. It's very large and I knew there would be NO WAY we would have time ourselves. (Oh, the irony) Discovered we could get a whole new dining set for the cost of recovering the booth. Okay, move the booth out. Wow, the walls will have to be painted in what we call the office-where the booth and dining table was-don't ask. If we are going to paint in there we should go ahead and paint the kitchen and the dining room as well. Never really cared for the striped wall paper in the dining room anyway...
|Striped wallpaper gone and painted-except for the bottom where the wainscote will go|
|Jimmie working away on yet another "little" project that cropped up|
|Only half of the light fixture works so it has to go|
|A work in progress.......?|
|Can't paint here yet-replacing this window and the new one isn't in yet|
|Oh, yeah. Went and looked at this table that was advertised on Craig's List. It's too tall for what I needed. When I said so and the girl who was selling it was so despondent, I bought it. Guess I'll cut off the legs and paint it. :)|
|There was a wall heater here. Jimmie took it out and patched the drywall. He's getting really good at it!|
|The wall heater was also included in the wall of this room. Another room to include in the remodel.:)|
|The patch and paint job turned out okay in here.|
|Many layers later, we are down to the subfloor.|
|We had to put tarps down so the adhesive left on the sub floor won't have us stuck to it like mice on those sticky papers.|
REALLY?! Could we not have just gotten the booth recovered and put down new tile flooring? NO, no. Way to easy. Actually, it has been kind of fun. I'm a really good tearer upper. Now to see if we can get it put back together!!
