What I’ve done on 2017 Summer Holidays Part II, Day 1
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/fragrance/
So, during these 3 weeks off of work, I’ll be working…on some things in the house. There is always something to avoid, er, I mean, do in an old house like this. So, the main things I want to do inside over the next three weeks are: paint the little tiny porch at the back of the house, paint the main floor bathroom, strip wallpaper off the stairwell walls (or as much of it as I can without a ladder…I’m not getting up on a ladder in the stairwell for ANYONE!).
So, today I did some prep in the back porch area. It’s a small space, but was originally covered in wallpaper. Now, imagine me swearing to myself just now as I realized that this is the ONE space I don’t have a real “before” picture of. Sigh…
I do, however have befores and afters of one of the two doors…Why, oh why don’t I have a “before” of the deck door??? You can see the after below…
Anyway, I got the leftover wallpaper out from the door frames and chair rail, and then patched the big hole above the deck door.
And now I will need to sand that tomorrow, wash the walls, and then paint! Here is the space now:
This is the idea, although that gold is too dark – we have a lighter version we will use instead.
So, tomorrow, the adventure continues!!
