Tomorrow I'll be at the lake...
But before I get away for a few days, I wanted to share final pics of my very first DIY project. I'm pretty darn pleased with the way my back hallway turned out.
You remember it's ugliness, right? (I promise this will be last time I'll show these. I'm just a little giddy over it's transformation!)
GET A LOAD OF IT NOW!
(the laundry room is behind this door)
(Just realized you can see my messy office in the reflection...please ignore!)
A few "in progress" pics
And then some painting began and lasted through most of the day. I could tell immediately that I was in love!
And jsut like that, we were done. No seriously, it really didn't take that long. We prepped on Friday night for about 2 hours, worked all day Saturday for about 10 hours, and I followed up on Sunday after Sabrina went home for maybe another two. Ok...so maybe that is long when you think about it in hours, but it was practically completed in one weekend. And I consider that a huge accomplishment!
It's supposedly some sort of chicken feeder, but I'm not sure how it works in that capacity. We (them) installed a few sockets inside the cylinder, ran new wires in the trough part, and hooked it up with the wires in the ceiling from the old fixture. And voila, done!
So, all in all, I am thrilled with the outcome. I honestly was so surprised at how much I liked the black. Really was hesitant about putting chalk to it, but it's been very easy to clean. And it just goes to show, a little change in paint and flooring goes a very long way! Up next, that horrible yellow laundry room.
Have a good one!
