Painting

28 Jun

Last December, my big project for winter break was supposed to be painting the floor of the soap room.  Well, I ended up living in there over break because of the furnace issues.

Then I was going to do it over spring break, but it was a bit chaotic with kidding and everything.

Since then, I’ve barely had a chance to get into the soap room.

But I’m milking again and I need to make cheese and I really have to get back out there and work.

I have been cleaning the floor and moving things from one side, and I’ve started painting!

Woo hoo!  I am honestly excited at how much easier it will be to keep clean.

I have one more coat on the second side, then it’s just putting everything back where it belongs. Obviously, I will still need to do some touch up under the cabinets also (maybe).

When the soap room is done, the milk room is next! That should be fun.

Again, it will be much easier to keep clean.  Right now, I can’t sweep it clean (and most of the little chunks are pieces of hoof from my trying to keep up with their feet in our wet weather).  Then, I need a concrete stoop outside the door to help keep out the mud and mosquitoes.

The Project Continues

31 Mar

I am really making progress on the project of switching my library and bedroom.  I had furniture delivered this week.  I still need to replace the lamp that Rocky broke.  I’m thinking different curtains.

Rocky was quick to check everything out.  Luckily, he didn’t break anything this time.

He seems satisfied with it.

I love the way things are progressing!

I still have to clean my closet out from all the books stuffed in boxes–hopefully most will go up to the new library.  Sadly, I’m afraid that I’m going to find a lot of mouse damage.  That will get the laundry hamper and baskets out of the middle of the room.  Eventually, I’ll get Sky a nicer more comfortable bed.

Then I just need my dad to come help me hang the mirror.  It will be landscape orientation.

I don’t think I could have matched furniture to the mirror any better!
