Some before-and-afters

April 4, 2020


On Friday, I finished my video stuff early, so I finally got a job done that has been haunting me for years: using up the bead board/wainscoting from the old center. I pulled it off the walls before we left, and it’s been sitting in a pile since then.

In the toddler room, there is a corner we’re the drywall is getting all bashed up from how the chairs are stacked. (I don’t know why that happens.) I had two different lengths of bead board, and not enough of one size, so it’s kind of ‘Laurened’ on the short wall. Oh, well. Anyone else is welcome to change it.

On Saturday, I did not get a lot done. One thing was to cut down a spice holder that sits in the drawer by the stove. I want to start keeping pot holders right by the stove, so this was the logical spot.

And then? A fair amount of t.v.
