Weekend Warriors

Work began this weekend on finally fixing up the living room. We had sort of burned ourselves out with the buying of a new house, moving in, fixing up the bedroom and bathroom and we had been using the last few weekends to entertain family and friends as well as just relax. 

But I put an end to all that relaxing by having a minor freakout that we were going to spend the rest of eternity with mint colored walls accented by spackled holes and baseboards that weren't actually attached to the walls and insisted we get to work. We didn't get anywhere close to being done, but we made significant progress and I think one more weekend of working and I'll be able to post some nice before/after photos. 

The upside is that this weekend gave me a good opportunity to work on my sanding skills.
Always wear your protective mask and safety sunglasses
