Welcome to my primed outside walls...
Yeah, this was major stuff. After
months weeks of what seemed like slow progress and plastic tarps, we had solid surfaces, and I could almost see having people over again. Oh, and my back door closed. That, after 10 months of having the sliding glass wedged open by the sagging wall, was HUGE.
The BIG trick was taking a piece of old stucco to Home Depot and having them actually color match 10 year old shade of pink in Behr outdoor latex for the touch up.
I have to say, they did a perfect job.
It feels brand new! I hung onto the can because I clearly need to paint some more areas, so I'll be getting a lot more of this!
So there's my entrance from the patio. I may actually get to DECORATE out here tonight!
The tile went in in strips over two days so there was still access to the downstairs bathroom.
There's only the transition between the tile and the laminate left and the floors are DONE!!!
Now, scroll back up to those badly smoke damaged blue walls...
Much better, eh? All primed and ready to go!
Fortunately, I do still have the paint chip for that color. It's called Blue Burst, and with the artwork I have for the space, it's very dramatic. And yes, the artwork survived even through all the smoke and water.
This light fixture did not survive though. Not that I mind. Even I know it's awful.
So...what shall we do next?
