Bye, Bye Popcorn!

We're in our first official week of updating our house. Our first project was to try working on the popcorn ceilings. Meaning: get rid of them! We've been told it's a lot of work, it's a mess, etc... It's all true!! But, we've had fun working on it and love the outcome so far! We've taken them out of 2 bedrooms and 1 hallway. We still have 1 more large bedroom & the living, dining, and family room!

On the left is a picture of the room before we started. The blue & yellow wall will be painted a soft yellow at some point. This is Ted's old bedroom. Don't tell him that it will soon be pink & yellow! On the right is me getting started on the popcorn ceilings! What fun! Down below on the right is me continuing the work. Joel was working hard on the flooring in another bathroom (those pictures on another blog, another night). On the left is me--dirty, dirty! Isn't the face mask attractive?? I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but my legs look bruised from the dirt. The ladder was very dirty!


And now you can see the finished product! Well sort of, part one is done at least. Step two we'll work on tomorrow--putting a little bit of texture back on. Step three will be priming it. And, finally, step four-painting!

Doesn't it look great??

WOW!!!! You two have a lot of energy, and I know as much hard work as it is, you will both should feel very proud of yourselves! Your mom sent the heart friends your letter with your "blog site" (is that what you call it?) Anyway, I look forward to seeing the transformation. By the way... congratulations on Joel's new job, and your new home. It is all very exciting, and we all love being able to be informed as your lives change, etc. God Bless! Mary West

You were doing house renos at the same time as us. Although, we've still got tons to do and our basement is still not liveable. My blog will have more pics soon from our house, so check it out.
