|Sorry this photo is so dark… I could have turned on more lighting (or opened up the aperture…), but didn’t think about it.
|THE word for the day!!!
Feeling fabulous that all this work, though it is chaotic and practically every room in the house has something going on in it and we are living in the middle of all this destruction/construction! 🙂
|What the wallboard looked like prior to sanding|
|…and afterwards. 🙂|
|You can just see where the kitchen threshold will go over in the very upper right of this picture.|
|This just will NOT move to where I want it, so here is the photo to go with
all the talk about wallboard mesh and the
little hand-saw, my new favorite tool!!!
|Just a pop of color from outdoors, since I was out there staining in the overcast p.m.|
|These are the oak planks all cut to size, routered on the leading edge, and sanded and stained.|
|Different stains that I have had and used over the past 28 years of marriage. 🙂 One of these I used on some Windsor chairs we no longer have, and I think the “sugar maple” is what I used on the sofa-table-turned-side-board.|
vacuum hose for awhile while he was cutting wallboard
to finish an old repair.
Then, I went up and spent the afternoon sanding wallboard
in the 2nd bathroom
(the one we are working on remodeling).
***Wallboard is dusty stuff!
Definitely wear a dust mask rated for keeping those nasty little
particles from going into your lungs!
I found these sheets of super rough
for sanding wallboard
and they work great!
I went through 3 of them just going over those open
One of the older gentlemen who works at
told me that you can cut a piece of this sanding mesh
to clean up hard calcium deposits in your toilet
(those hard water spots that the toilet brush doesn’t quite get rid of).
He says to just roll it and stick it in there and scrub gently.
And it works!!!
Well, that’s it for now!
Happy Mother’s Day to you!!!
Blessings to you,
p.s. Almost forgot! A friendly electrician came by (hubby called to wire the ceiling lighting together on one switch) this week, and Hubby mentioned he wanted to have a plumber look at our sink attachments, so…
A plumber came this week, too!
Busy week!!! Bye, Ya’ll!
