Wow, we got a LOT done today! Seriously, we worked out butts off. We got up and started around 10:00. Andrew and I made another trip to Home Depot, I'm sure it won't be our last. Dad, started the finishing touches on the second coat of mud. Our walls were pretty rough, so we had a lot of mudding to do. Jamey, the electrician, also joined us today to continue the work on the electrical--that has also been a lot of work. I'm not sure what we would do without him.
I started priming and painting the trim around the door and window. I LOVE the color we picked out, called White Corn. It is perfect and will look really good with the wall paint. Dad and Andrew finished the mudding while I did quite a bit of painting. They finished sanding and wiping down the mud and made it ready to prime. We then primed the whole room--ceiling and walls! Wow!! The men put mastic on the floor to fix the little imperfections in the floor and then we called it a day.
It doesn't seem like much, but at 9:00 we were done for the day--an 11 hour work day. I'd say we did a lot. With a break for lunch and dinner we worked the whole day. Here are the results.
