Continuing on...

OK... work on the house stopped for two days so I could go to work,
you know that place that pays me to talk on the phone,
and The Crew could have a day to play golf...

Today we laid out the galvanized tin to see how it will look.


it was surplus from the metal place.
So got it for $55.00 cut.
need to clean up a couple.
This will go in the entry.

Today we are prepping the dining room and hallway to be painted.


Kenneth got one coat on while I fixed supper...

Five days...

 I took a couple extra days off from work
so we could finally complete several projects. 
This is what we finished yesterday...

Got Red Plastic paint...
I saw this done on
"Mango and Tomato" a beautiful blog.
such a simple thing...

 

spray the knobs,
 make sure they are super clean.
Took several thin coats...


WOW! what a difference.


Pinch Me! It's so pretty.


When I got up yesterday I made coffee
 and scraped out the caulking grout we had used.
We went back and bought some
more of the regular TEC Grout
and did it again.
Kenneth applies, I clean.
We also went with a little darker
shade, it looked like cocoa in the jar.

Much better...


painted trim boards and 
It's Done!  Who wants something baked?

Scroll on down to see what all we got
 accomplished it the last five days...
Today I get to go back to work...

Check back soon, there's more to come.
