Walls are coming down...Part II

Yep, we are still working on the wall... All of the mudding is done and the "bar" is in place. We are just sanding, sanding, and more sanding. Next time I get the bright idea of ripping out a wall I need to remember how much I hate dusting...

One neat note is we got to use my belated grandfather's router we got while cleaning out his garage 5 years ago. Still works and we found all of the pieces (miracle.) Collins got to use it for the first time to make the nice rounded edges. It is nice to be able to have nice sentimental items like this while making something for our home. Goes to show loved ones may be gone, but never forgotten. My Granddaddy would be so proud!!!


Everyone is getting into the action to get this done. We need all of the help we can get.



Wesley is getting into the action by participating in the Derby race!!!


The wall should be finished by this weekend. Well, pending on the fact we find the left over paint cans!! Wish us luck! Apparently my hubby knows me too well and says the paint color stays...well, a girl can try!!

REmoding that sounds like FUN can I have your wall. I'd love to separate the kitchen from the front room

This is awesome! I scrolled down and read Part 1 as well. Woo Hoo! I love how it is turning out, and that your hubs is actually doing it! Mine is a lot of talk sometimes, but not as much work as I'd like.
