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!!
