I'm back for week five of Calling it Home's, the One Room Challenge. First things first, I'd like to titillate you with this photo of some of the fun stuff that happened this week...
...because the rest of this post is about cleaning and spraying and that's about as much fun as watching glue dry.
So remember how last week I stated that I was over the hump and that most of the hard labor had been finished?
It all started with the need to paint the fireproof cement board that insulates the wall behind the wood stove.
Came out looking pretty good though.
Next up was fumigating the crap out of any spiders still living in there after my initial giant clean up.
Ordinarily I would avoid this type of measure at all costs but the way in which we installed the cedar paneling to the concrete wall behind it, has proven to be a very happy breeding ground for Mr. spideyman and his gang.
And this, my friends, is what came off the floor in there.
Despite all my whining, I really am enjoying this project. Things are beginning to look pretty dope back there (either that or I'm still high from toluene, ha ha, joking). Tune in next week for the total transformation. And don't forget to check out the other participants.
