Another Bedroom Facelift

Greg began prepping our 'yellow' bedroom for a fresh coat of paint during his vacation at the end of 2011.  He worked on electrical and repaired plaster cracks in the ceiling and walls.  Last weekend we put a coat of paint on the ceiling and walls.  We had extra paint from our living room remodel so we are using the same paint in this bedroom.  Maybe we'll put the final coat of paint on this weekend.  Or maybe other things will take priority.  Just wait and see...

How about this for reuse?  I had some extra vinyl from a project at work.  We used it as a drop cloth to protect our wood floors.  Maybe now Greg will stop complaining about the fabric I bring home.

Let There Be Light!

Overall, I really can't complain about our kitchen.  For an older home, it's a really good size.  Lots of great cabinets.  But it gets dark in corner by the pantry.  Greg recently installed under-cabinet lighting.  Now we can see when we are cooking - let me rephrase that - Greg can see when he's cooking.  I'll use the lights when I'm baking.
