Too Pooped to Pop


note the flour dust in the plant an imagine it thickly applied to everything you have.



Whew, we're finished. The dining room now matches the kitchen and I think it looks wonderful. Yesterday my friend, came over and helped me clean. Daddy BB used a sander on the walls and the whole house was coated with a layer of "flour." I am very grateful that he did such a great job painting but I did say a four letter word to him about that; TARP. It took us about 8 hours to just dust and clean the front room and we still have the blinds to do. When you wipe off everything you have it's kind of like moving and I am exhausted. Here are some pictures of the finished room.

Have you considered going into the Interior Decorating field? If you were, and if I had any money, I would hire you on the spot!!!

How wonderful! I love the colors you chose. I know what you mean about dust too--even tarps don't stop it all. Hey, at least everything is sparkling now, right?

Great job on the redo!

FANTASTIC! I'd say I'm jealous, but the projects here leave me pooped too. :) Looks incredible!

What a lovely color. Nice work!

I have that "flour" dust here in California too. I thought it was here just to teach me patience. But no, it's with you forever: Even after you finish your projects. Ug!
