Well, work continues at the moor.
We’ve been plugging away at our downstairs trim work for a few weeks. It seems to happen that daily life keeps getting in the way of real progress. Maybe it’s just that hot yoga, gardening, and strolls in the park are more appealing than filling the house with stinky paint fumes.
Anyway, we’re back at it. Our process involves puttying, caulking, sanding, priming, and, finally, painting.
While many are on the anti-wood painting bandwagon, we take comfort in the fact that our wood really isn’t very nice. It’s cracked and scratched, warped, full of holes, and even loose.
So, in our minds, a bit of paint and caulk are helping to bring the old charm back to our ugly ducking with a little more gloss… or should I say, eggshell.
We’re happy to be welcoming warmer weather, weekends at home, and progress on some little projects that are making us feel more at home.
Hopefully we’ll have some real before & after trim shots shortly.
