Living Room Make Over

Filed under: House — maryparadox @ 3:06 pm

We’ve started painting the living room… very slowly. At the current rate we are finishing about one wall per weekend. Last weekend we painted the south wall:
And now we are on to the north wall:

It is slow going because the living room is all lathe and plaster and has about 10-20 coats of paint on it. We’re sanding it down and patching holes, but in places the plaster is separating from the lathe and being held on by old wall paper and paint. We’d love to redo it all, but you have to keep things in perspective; for us that means saving our energy for the kitchen remodel.

Peter was a little annoyed that I decided his old Stanford sweaters were going to be painting clothes, even though they have more holes than sweater.
