catch up, catch up, catch up…

By in Upstairs Hallway

Two years ago I remodeled my upstairs hallway along with my bedroom and the results were much better than I expected. In all of the photos I posted I left something out however- the wall outside my upstairs bathroom. This wall is bumped out from the rest of the hallway due to construction the previous owners did. I’m not sure why I never painted it when I was doing the work originally. I guess I didn’t want to deal with all of the caulking it would take (there is lots of molding on this side) or the fact that there is a built in cabinet that would need to be taken apart in order for the job to get done right. So I put it off. I mentioned it in this post in August of 2010 but still didn’t feel very motivated to work on it until this past weekend when I went out and bought the necessary supplies. Today I had some unexpected time on my hands so I decided to get to work and unify my hall. I wiped it all down with some TSP substitute, took the doors off and got to work caulking. Let me tell you, I hate caulking, but I know from Anna that it makes a big difference. After 3 hours, two tubes of caulk and a little sweat, I’m all ready to prime it this week!

Here are some before pics and a progress pic:

      I’m glad I’m back to doing it too. It’s really weird, since I finished my bedroom and upstairs hallway I haven’t had much ambition to do any renovating/decorating and then recently I’ve had a real urge to get going on it again. I want to get the living room painted and new curtains and new furniture hopefully before Christmas. I’d also like to get the dining room and breakfast room repainted and a new breakfast table, but that might have to wait until spring.

    Okay now, don’t leave us hanging for the after pictures! I’m still looking for the ones from the outside stuff you were doing!

      LOL don’t worry Rose, pictures of the bathroom should be up tomorrow. I was going to do the post tonight but I waited until after dark to take the pictures and I think they would look better with some daylight. I’m sorry I never got to post pictures of the outside this summer, my Dad had to have unexpected heart surgery and that pretty much took up most of my August.

    Dad’s surgery is a good reason to not take pictures! I hope he is well on the way to recovery.
