While we continue enjoying all the wonderful links for yesterday’s Met Monday, I thought I would share some of the progress I made in the office, today. I covered everything up.
I put “you-know-who” on the screened-in porch so he wouldn’t be breathing in all the sanding I’d be doing. He wasn’t too thrilled about Mom staying inside while he was out, but he eventually found a big puddle of sunshine and took a nice nap. Whenever I let him stay inside while I try to sand the walls in the office, he scrapes at the office door until he pushes it open. The latch on the office door isn’t catching quite right so he can worm his way in with just a little effort. It was nice and warm out today so he was fine on the porch.
I sanded all the walls to remove any last little bits of wallpaper and/or glue. Then I grabbed this stuff…
And got to work on all the damaged areas that occurred during the removal of the wallpaper. I have polka-dotted walls right now.
I had to move all the furniture to the center of the room, so here’s how it’s positioned for now. Tomorrow I’ll put Mr. Max back on the porch again and I’ll get busy sanding all those polka dots.
Then it will be time to prime all the walls, including the mural that I’ve been dreading painting over. Maybe it won’t be as painful as I have feared it will be. I will just have to keep envisioning the room all finished. Right? (Sniff, sniff.)
Mr. Max at the end of the day, happy to be back inside again. 🙂
