Who would like to see my awesome new crib? Yes? Ok, here we go!
Here’s what I did today. This is the master bedroom – it’s pepto pink with antique white crackle finish. Yes, really. I got the wallpaper all off today and painted the dingy gross ceiling.
(Wallpaper tip: I have tried all the products and gadgets, and the best and cheapest way to get wallpaper off without fucking up the wall underneath is with vinegar. Peel off the top vinyl layer with your girlie fingernails, then spray or brush on cheap white vinegar. When the paper is soaked, it should peel off the wall with no damage. Unless you get impatient and fed up with it and stab the wall with your putty knife – no promises there.)
I made a mess.
Then I cleaned it up!
Then I painted the indescribably gross ceiling. It’s not actually nasty-dirty, it just hasn’t been painted in probably 33 years. It really paints like the original blown-on popcorn stuff, not like a ceiling that was painted at some point.
Two gallons of Kilz 2 got one coat on the bedroom ceiling and part of the hall. The second coat tomorrow shouldn’t be as hard. I’ll cut in tomorrow – I was TIRED and hungry by the time I rolled up 2 gallons of paint.
Ok, that’s enough house stuff – on to the property!
Here’s the small run-in. This is the one I’m going to turn into a compost pile shelter.
A Cersei dog.
Looking at the first area of the bigger run-in. I don’t know what it’s closed in like that for.
The other two areas of the run in. I don’t know what that fence is doing there…
Here’s the rest of the chain link fence, the chicken coop, and a Cersei-dog.
Well, this must be the back of the chicken coop…
So the other side must be the front – wait, wtf?
This is the future paddock. There’s a ton of weird junk. The neighbor’s fence is horrendous – I am going to have to put up new t-posts for the whole perimeter. Sigh.
It’s a pretty awesome place. Lots of promise, but lots of work to make it happen.
