Living Room is Painted!

Yeah!! After being trapped in scaffolding for three days the living room is painted!

I was really nervous day one but come day two I was scaling the scaffolding like a pro. Then I fell. I’m alright but there isn’t anything better than a good 5-6’ fall to smack some fear back into a person. Respect the scaffolding!

Scott got the scaffolding set up for me with a little help from ground support. The next morning I was ready to go.

My helper was a better napper.

The priming was possibly the worst part.

I was trying to get the heavy bucket up the ladder and very quickly I realized I was not strong enough to get it past the first landing. I tied a nice knot and decided to pull the bucket up.

I DID IT! No mess to clean up!

Below is a photo of the ceiling completed with paint.

I had to retire my painting clothes this time. They’ve seen their best days. I have another set of holey jeans and ratty shirt waiting to take their place.

Above are some shots I took of the almost completed living room. Scott started on the bathrooms so I’m not sure when the living room will be 100% complete. Everything left is just little stuff so I’m not too worried.

After completing the living room I’m having difficulty motivating myself to keep going. I want to take a few days to nap on my couch and stare at one finished project. Maybe then I’ll be motivated to keep going.

Bathroom update coming soon.

  1. It made me chuckle when you said that everything left to do is just little stuff. I said I would never move into our new home until everything was done. 51 years later it was finally done. We had light switches sticking out of the wall with 4 inch wires for 51 year and if Mike (Your dad) hadn’t said to Dick, “I bet they’ll still be like that when I visit again.” they would NEVER have gotten done. Mike visited and Dick felt pressured to get er done. HaHa Ii hope your little stuff gets finished sooner than mine did.
