Dining Room

Dining Room Progress

Skim coating is always slow going.  But I’ve managed to finish off one bucket of slop (the bucket I was using for the bathroom skim coat job) and moved on to a new one.

Ah, nothing like a fresh bucket of joint compound, eh?

Sorry for the grainy night photos.  Most of the work I’ve been doing lately happens after I get home from work (I’m so glad that it’s going to start getting lighter again soon!).  Charlie stays pinned to my side the whole time; if she’s not laying down in the room I’m in, she’s got her nose stuck right into my latest project.

For a full tutorial on skim coating after removing wallpaper, I created a detailed post during the master bath redo that will give you all of the specifics.  Just click here for the lowdown (and alllllll of my long-winded advice).  This is one of those kinds of tasks that was really fun to learn the first time around.  And now it’s more like a task that you know you have to do to get to the good part.

Never Miss a Post

    Oh, and can I say that I'm so jealous of your projects, because we have been in this house for 2 years exactly and I can't seem to finish it! I mean….jeez. But, I think seeing you bust it out like this, girl, means I am finding my motivation! :)
