So last night, I tackled a few things here and there. Trim in the living room, the ceiling in the living room, the floor in the bedroom the ceiling in the bedroom.... cut new windows in the attic, papered the walls, staged a mock up of what I want it to look like... prepped more of the outside for I am going to do to it, drilled holes for lights and rerouted the wires, mini waxed everything in place.... And I think that is it.
Here are my clamps, and stack of speed shingle assistant, putting the stairs in place. Yes, I realize there is not railing, but mini OSHA will just have to deal with it. :P The railing made it look all bulky and gross, even though the measurements are to scale for the landing. Whatevs. So, no drinking and scaling the stairs at the same time!!!
plugs for the wall lights following Brae's wisdom. I had to cut a bead in half though, which was a total B.
You can't really tell here, since I am still learning the new camera, but I painted the shelf under the stairs, Berry Red by Americana. It looks awesome. :) And I need to pick a show for the tv...
The Murphy bed looks so good in here! This room is simple, but still full of all sorts of things, and I love it. Before I start on the attic flooring though, I need to make up my mind about the light here. I like the look, but not the blue LED...or the big fat battery case. But I don't mind the brass. The whole point of ET is a Victorian that is being modernized a little bit at a time.
The attic! So there is a treatment for the back wall that I really want to do, and it would be easier with a not round window. Enter the non-working window...on it's side. Prepping the attic was a lot of work. I had to pull out old trim, sand a ton, sweep up the mess, scrape off nubbins of glue... UGH. Then I got this really great paper and went to work. :) The whole idea for my attic is half relaxing getaway and half storage. Looks like a nice guest room area.Brae just got from Fran, but I have matchboxes that I will make into old brown ones. See them in the pile there?
The mattress is being borrowed from the Murphy bed, it will be smaller than this. The pillows are borrowed from the Nook. The lamp, tables, vases, radiator and trunk will stay. The trunk was a gift from Brae. I thought, originally, that it would hold the battery casing for the lights in here, but it is too small. So I will fill it with blankets and games and such instead.
