Are you sick of seeing this before picture? Just think, this is what I’ve been looking at for 27 years!
This is how I taped the trim to dry fit it.
This is how I taped the trim to glue it!
A little over kill?
Isn’t it wonderful all the natural light I get in this room?
Those windows that cost me so much for the blinds… let a lot of light in.
I love the black and the white together!
I am so glad I did this. I am NOT done.
Sometimes I wonder if I will ever be done!
I need to do some touchups and some caulking.
I still need to put the quarter round down.
I believe I’m going to add trim to both ends of the hearth. I will probably be trudging out in the snow. 🙁
I still have to attach the boards (1×5) on the side of the area between the top of the mantel and the floor. Of course, I’m sure I have more painting to do! It is never ending!
I hope to finish this step of the project this weekend. I am anxious to start the shelving unit for the tv/cable box. I took a break Thursday morning and went to the Peddler’s Mall. I picked up a few things. I’ll show you what I got on Monday. Have a great weekend.
ps thanks to everyone for their support, comments, and kind words over the last couple of weeks! It means a lot to me. This has been a challenge to do alone. Things would sure go a lot smoother with a helper. If you are lucky enough to have that person in your life, go hug them right now and tell them how much you appreciate them!
