Stage One Complete

Here's what I got done yesterday. Today, I put the first coat of paint on the crown molding and the first coat of poly on the floor. I thought I would get more painting done today but the crown molding took forever. Notice how the lights are on? The radio is too. I did the floor and forgot to turn them off. Now i can't get to them. Also, the windows are wide open. I'm going to have to see if I can tiptoe in there tonight to turn them off and close the windows. Hopefully, it will be dry enough for that. At least it is a nice breezy day, great for drying!
Tomorrow, I paint the ceiling, get the first coat on the walls and the second coat of poly on the floor. If I have time, I'll do the second coat of paint on the ceiling and walls and then I'll have Tuesday free!

DIY-my favorite

I'm working on painting the front room of the shop today. Big Nephew helped me move everything out of there and now I'm spackling, scraping and priming. Tomorrow, I sand and put on the first coat of paint. Hopefully, it won't take me too long. I haven't really given myself much time to get this project done. I leave for Maine on Wednesday and I'm going to try to touch up the polyeurethane on the floor as well. And I'm going for a bike ride with Stef tomorrow afternoon. And I'm taking the dog to the vet on Monday morning. I may be living in a fantasy world thinking I can get this all done but that doesn't mean I'm not going to try!
I'll have some pictures tomorrow.
