The renovation is slow, but each weekend we are making progress when we can afford the time and energy. The best thing that happened last week..the crown molding went up! I was convinced I would be stepping over it for the next three months in the upstairs hallway. Enter Bill Pate— Steve’s best friend from Maryland; with his expertise, nail gun and time, it was knocked out in a few hours. Hooray!
Next, we converted an outdated bookcase my parents generously donated towards my first apartment after college. If I do the math, that was a whopping 14 years ago… is that right? Can that be right? The wood was solid, but the unsightly oak finish had to go. A bucket of clean white paint, and it’s new to me. The best part was filling up the shelves with a few loved trinkets; pantone swatches, a print making piece from college and of course, books.
Not sure where the next project will take us, but that’s kind of the best part.
