Before painting the square, I had to fill a few holes and I went ahead and filled a few more holes in the foyer. We had to get a new gallon of paint mixed and luckily the color match was almost perfect. I primed and painted the square (and some other foyer walls), and with it gone, my attention turned to the "stained glass" on the windows over the door. When Joe bought the house, the faux stained glass was in a few places in the house. It didn't take long for me to scrape it off the glass shower doors in the master bathroom and the side windows around the front door. But the the windows that were 2 stories up proved to be a bit more of a challenge. Two weekends ago we finally borrowed an extension ladder from our neighbor and I got to work scraping. It was pretty rough at the start and the paint did not want to come off, until I finally realized that I just need to switch out the blade on the razor scraper I was using. It made ALL the difference in the world! After that realization I didn't hesitate to switch the blades out anytime I was having trouble.
|That dripping paint was soooo gross looking.|
|No more square or stained glass!|
The windows are all scraped now and it's surprising how much more light is let in!
Another little behind the scenes update is the extra insulation that Joe added in the attic. We're hoping to see a significant change in our electricity bill this winter.
Are you all doing any house updates or projects? Maybe if I hear about your I'll be more inspired to finish mine! I hope you all have a great weekend, talk to you later!
