A busy weekend!!!

MY MY MY what a busy weekend. We are so tired. However a lot of progress has been made. On Friday we textured all the walls and painted all the doors downstairs. While Romney textured the downstairs, I was upstairs preparing for texture and paint. I hate that blue tape!! On Saturday we went back and the texture was dry so we primed AGAIN! While the primer was drying we textured upstairs along with painting the baseboards and doors. Now all the upstair walls are ready for primer and the downstair walls are ready for paint!! I am so excited.

I am sanding off the excess texture before priming.


There was once a HOLE in the ceiling but Romney did a great job patching that up (yes we are repainting the ceiling). He put in some recessed lighting along that wall too. What a stud!



It really is making progress! ITs just primer but it looks better already!



The upstairs! Two things I want you to notice. One: look at all the bedroom colors...hello?(if you cant see the colors I did a post below just of the colors) Two: on the wall directly in front you may notice a BIG white rectangle on the wall; well that is because there was a bookcase there and the people did not want to move it while painting...so they went around it.




AHHH the bathroom. Im not a mom however, I bet there are other ways to make your child feel special than letting them paint a beach scene on the wall. This isn't the only painting on the wall either. There is a great butterfly downstairs too. One never knows....

WOW!! Looks like it's coming right along!! How fun for you guys. If you keep working on it, there won't be anything for the Texas Links to help with when we come to visit. Leave something for us. Love you both!

I'm totally impressed! If I ever buy a house I will hire you and Romney to come and give it a makeover! It's going to be so great!

We let jake express himself with painting as well. Mainly murials on the side of our vehicle. The one on the back of steve truck is a mural of his truck. (not really of course, but someone on Steves mission had that on their truck) Totally ghetto.

I cannot believe you are going to paint over that gem of a mural in the bathroom! Shocking!! Glad the projects are going well . . . you really are making great progress!

ok ok , so we're blog stalkers. We add people to our list, read their blogs, and then never comment! The sad part is, ive been reading your blog since you two took up sailing!!! I always meant to comment.....Anyway, we are living down here in san diego. Our lives arent nearly as fun as you guys what with all your remoldeling, but i cant complain! I drove up and had lunch with Amy Gulick a few weeks ago which was a blast. Fun little trip down memory lane!

Jayna and I could NOT believe we both married boys that dated you (although I hear Gabe's attempt was unsuccessful!!!) We love it and the small small world that is Ricks college! and agree that at least they have GREAT TASTE in women!

if you could hook me up with the past home owner's phone number, I'd appreciate it... I am looking for some kid to do a nice beach scene on a few of my walls. Painting around the bookcase is classic. I think i might take that tip next time we have to paint.
You guys are doing an awesome job! It's looking so good!

Meagan Cooper said...

Man, Mike's dad is going to want to hire you Both back to complete the houses they build. I am so impressed with all the work you have been doing. It looks fab!

Dartay said...

Wow, Darren would be jealous if he saw your blog! We are finishing our basement and the furthest I go to that is bringing drinks and treats! That is the reason I will not be showing him this cutie hard at work, sorry girl!

You might want to save that kiddy painting...in 15 years from now you might get a phone call from the kid wanting to cut it out of the wall for his mom....JK...Byron, I'm just teasing you! I love you!
