I've been absent from the blogging world for a couple of days because I've been busy trying to piece my house back together. However, I'm happy to report that my ceiling project is nearing a close! The drywall guys were here Monday and Tuesday (finally!) to smooth and sand and I spent the better part of yesterday painting. My ceiling is now smooth and brilliantly white! (Since it probably isn't that noticeable and therefore probably, no definitely, not worth all the trouble I've put into it, humor me the next time you are at my house by exclaiming, "Kim, your ceiling is so smooth...and white!" You can ad lib as you like, but something along those lines should be sufficient.) So anyway, up to this point, I've been working solo on the entire thing (Jared refuses to get dragged into my crazy home improvement projects and I can't blame him...) but I'm hoping to solicit his help today. Because, due to the snowball effect of the project and the fact that the drywall guys did quite a bit of patching on our walls while they were working on the ceiling...we now have to re-paint the majority of our living space. Oh boy. All I wanted to do was paint my kitchen a different color...what happened?

i cannot believe you did all that ceiling scraping! We did one small bedroom and decided that scraping the ceiling is the devil.
speaking of the kitchen, how is it coming, did you pick a color yet?
can't wait to see those fabulous ceilings at christmas time!!

Isn't that always the way?? That is the one thing I hate about homeownership. The projects are NEVER done. Once you get one done you think of a new one to do. Yuck. At least you HAVE a handy husband- poor Brandon doesn't have a clue. But I still love him. I would love nice ceilings!! Ours have bumps and cracks that no one but me notices and it drives me nuts somedays.
