I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!
So I rented the floor sander to do these floors
Here I go, never doing it before. But I sure watched 3 weeks of videos. And I have done floor buffing before so I think I can do this.
This is the living room.
Here it is after I was halfway done.
I plan to use a couple dark stains mixed together. I'm hoping for a nice finish and hope I did a good enough sanding.
But before I stain I want to do my walls, but wait, what's that up there under the drop ceiling?
Here I go, ripping down that T Bar drop ceiling. What a mess!!!
Oh yes there are a few problems up there but nothing I am worried about. Keep on ripping it out Jen. You got this girl. Yes you are Superwoman!
What a mess it makes. Be sure you have a mask on and a shop vac handy!
Nothing a day can't do when you set your mind to it. And I didn't hurt myself once.
And yes, that is my brand new Werner fiberglass ladder. Bought it just for my new home. I love Werner ladders. There are hooks and holes all over it for your tools.
TADA, here is my new old beadboard ceiling. It's going to be beautiful. I'll be putting a long 2" x 6" stained board along left to right where it's open. (click here to see what I hope it turns out like) Going to fill in the other smaller openings with bead board. Then a chandelier.
Tomorrow I scrap the wall, put in some putty and sand down where all the t bar hardware was. THEN PAINT!!!
