Skim coated the walls in the breakfast nook this morning after we removed the old wall paper.
The ugly papered over cracked plaster ceiling is covered. Now I just need to paint it and install the chandelier.
I’ve been wanting to paint it for a week but things keep popping up, I have to do first. Chelle bought us a Murano blown glass chandelier for the entry and I just couldn’t stand the thought of hanging it on the old ceiling the way it was.
I have a little extra time, since two pieces of the chandelier arrived broken and we are waiting for those replacements.
I’m only painting the ceiling. I hired the sheetrock out. I finished a small ceiling smooth once. About 1/6th this size. It took me a week of mudding and sanding. These 3 guys, very minimal sanding and done in two days.
Now on to installing a garbage disposal. I don’t know how people manage without one.
Update: November 11, 2017
All painted and ready for the chandelier!
