We are still plugging away at a neighbours house, and yes…we are still painting. Yesterday we almost finished all the painting in the master vanity/walk-in closet/toilet-tub area but we ran out of white paint.
Here is the before of the closet… walls, ceiling, trim…everything was beige.
Yesterday we started a small job which has grown in size. If you remember, we had installed a new glass storm door for a neighbour a few weeks ago. At the time she mentioned she would like to have new flooring installed in two bedrooms: a spare bedroom and her master bedroom and ensuite, plus walk-in closet.
The spare room had some damage to the drywall where a cabinet had been removed, so she asked to have the drywall fixed and both rooms painted.
First up was fixing the drywall in the spare room.
While waiting for that to dry, we started on the master. First up was removing the carpet, underlay, and tack strips.
We were working around the bed and dresser so once we removed the flooring from one side of the room, we moved the furniture and continued with the removal on the other side.
Above is the vanity area and walk-in closet. To the right is the room with tub and toilet. That vinyl flooring was removed next.
With the floors all swept up we started on painting the master bedroom.
All trim (and there is a lot) was painted white while the walls were painted grey. At the end of the first day we had the master bedroom painted with two coats of grey. The Benjamin Moore Aura brand paint allows for a second coat in 1-2 hours. Next we will move into the vanity area, walk-in closet and toilet/tub area.
Still quite a few days of work left on this job.
On our way down her driveway at 5pm to go home we spotted two racoons in a tree on her lawn.
Someone asked for some help with installing a laminate flooring their home. An old farmhouse, you would expect the room dimensions to be off by a little bit but this house was well built and the room was as square as could be.
The decision to replace a dusty rose colored pile carpet with gunstock colored solid oak hardwood flooring was an easy one. Doing the work was a little bit more labour intensive but the result was beautiful.
