Walls and Texture

I am shoveling my dinner down my throat to fuel up for the kitchen walls. This would be day number 3. The plan is knock out around the basement door, dinning room door and part of the west wall. We should of just gotten a sledge hammer and firemen tools and gutted the room. It would have been more fun.

This has been a slow, dirty, dusty, filthy – yes I’m focused on the mess that this causes and the 2 hours it takes me to clean up. However, we have smooth walls for new cabinets. I want this done by the weekend so that we may prime out the walls and make some decisions about color. I told the husband when Sunday rolls around I may just sleep the day away.

My fear is when I get to the north wall, this is the wall that was effected by the ice damn from last winter we are going to find problems. We will see – that sledge hammer in my hands may still happen.

Pictures to come, for I don’t have time to load them right now but we will say that it is very colorful and full of hidden memories of the kitchen from is long past. Sea foam Green anyone as a color choice?

Oh and before 10:00 I have to fit a walk in for the dogs.

    What is it about Thanksgiving that makes us set impossible – or almost unattainable – deadlines? Hope you don’t find too much damage up there

    Thanks for the pointer to Elegant Wood Products, they may be just the folks for replacing parts of my stairway.

    Jane – We are crazy. There are no other reasons why a human would do this to themselves.

    I came to the decision that I cannot do this another night I need a break and some much needed sleep. First I have to remove some molding so I would feel as if I did something productive.

    Karen Anne – I will try and get the photos uploaded this evening. I hope Elegant can help you out.
