Happy Early T Tuesday my friends!! I hope everyone in the States is having a nice Labor Day weekend! We took a break from working on the house.... Instead Hubby played out in his workshop , cleaning and setting it up how he likes it and day dreaming about the things he wants to build out there.......(And he might have put a couple steaks on the grill...yum!) As you can see i've been painting again... This is done on one of those hard photo mailers. I recycled it after receiving some photos... This was inspired by the Art Sherpa .... What?! You haven't heard of Cinnamon Cooney the Art Sherpa?? Well just let me put a link there and if you paint with acrylic or have ever even given it a thought for one micro second...nano second... that you might actually like to paint then you absolutely MUST meet her... The link is to the video that inspired this piece... I call it Channeling Van Gogh...lol It was so much fun. I just love her. Her mom is quite the famous artist too Ginger Cook. She has painting tutorials too... I love how i was able to take Cinnamon's Van Gogh idea and turn it into my own thing with the lantern...
Poof! No more garage doors... They are sealed, insulated and sheetrocked!! Woohoo more walls in the craftroom!!
Above is another picture of the craftroom... rewired, insulated and sheetrocked... Theres a ledge that runs the length of the room.. Along this wall will be the bulk of my countertop... Gosh i can hardly wait...
This is the opposite wall in the craftroom ... This coming week i will put all new insulation in there and help hubby put sheetrock up there... See that door?
That leads to the above photo of the storage room.. Its been rewired and insulated and sheetrock will go up in here this coming week too..
Here is that downstairs family room/den/ hopefully pooltable one day room... See it even has a ceiling now...
We replaced these rather old fashioned ( IMHO) vents
With these... and you can see we insulated the vent pipes..
Our upstairs fireplace stoop ( that little step in front of the fireplace) was sagging a little ... pulling away from the rest of the fireplace... and after we tore out the ceiling below we could see that the stoop really wasn't supported with a beam... poor judgement on whoever put it in.... so we put a new beam up there to help it out and it did pull it back up..... But was it ever a hard job
This is the other side of that room... looking good!! This is where hubs and i chill out in the evenings and watch some TV..
Now.... for the picture that goes
with the title of this post.... don't look
Just for my Tea People... Hubs and i got these cups many moons ago and mostly they sit now unused... But they speak volumes of just how we feel about each other... Its funny to think of them now.. We used to take them everywhere... especially when traveling.. I think i still have them... packed... somewhere... Happy Tday everyone! Thank you so much to Elizabeth and Mr. Bleubeard for hosting this lovely gathering.. Hugs! deb
