Well I got the sanding done and applied the drywall sealer. Yeesh...who would have thought that I'd be the one to seal the drywall in a house 27 years old!
I can paint some of the final colour on these 2 walls, but then I have to wait for a strong guy to show up and help me move my desk. Then we have the panelling to remove and more mudding etc...a vicious cycle! But the good news, so far I haven't spent any $$$ on this project. I'm using stuff I already had at home. Psst - don't tell Joe, but I'm going to get a couple new bookcases. I figure the old news are about ready to fall down unless I do some major repairs...cheaper to just replace these Victoria day relics! Right Joe? Thought so...now if you would help me pick them up - they are heavy!
