Welcome to Day 15 of 31 Projects: House to Home 2013!
I got some things done today. It is just moving super slow with AJ back at work. Drew and I had a rough day, so that slowed things down even more. It was also a "hurry up and wait" kinda day.
I worked on the dry wall some more today. I kept thinking I was done and then I would find more holes that needed to be filled and sanded down. I had to patch the dry wall where we took the old back splash down, and sand that down.
I thought I had the new fake wall all smooth until I painted. Once I got paint on the wall I can see the tape lines on the sides of the fake wall. I am going to remud it, sand it down again, and repaint tomorrow. I have a couple of other areas that need to be redone, too. It just makes it feel like today was a bit of a waste. Though, hopefully by the end of this I will know how to do a great job mudding and taping dry wall.
It doesn't look too bad in the pictures, but in person the seam is visible. I know if I don't try to fix it now it will bug me for a long time until I break down and redo it. At least the stove top got put back in today. I need to get some new coil trays because the rest of the stove top is all shiny and clean. But, at least I can sort of cook in the midst of things again.
I did get the paint done on the sides of the coffee bar today. I also got the hanging basket up to hold tea, cinder, and hot chocolate. I am really excited about the way this counter is coming together. I am happy to have one little area to decorate so that I can see that everything is really going to look nice when it is done. Right now, I just tend to see the mess of construction. This will end soon, right?
