Prep Work //

Prep work -- skim coating, sanding, wiping down dust, priming, painting ceilings -- isn't very hard but it sure is dull. It is all necessary to prepare the spaces for the finishing work, the fun stuff like wall color, and that is about all that redeems the energy and time spent on doing it. That, and shaken iced tea from Starbucks, of course.

Working in all that dust, applying coat after coat of primer, sweating and getting really sore... but it really all does pay off when you roll that first coat of color onto the walls.

little house THREE

December 27, 2014 I moved into Little House TWO and began cleaning, painting, and decorating it. Exactly two years later my husband, of just less than a year, and I -- seven months pregnant, and our Great Pyrenees dog, Barley James, moved into Little House THREE. When we moved out of the second Little House we sold most of our furniture and purged out a lot of other belongings. What we had left -- with the latest addition of a few practical pieces of furniture and some things for Baby O -- is what we unpacked into the third Little House. The apartment you see is as we found it except for three small improvements: hanging a towel hook near the sink in the bathroom, as well as the pot and the knife rack in the kitchen. A small apartment that isn't much to look at and our minimal belongings have come together to make a very cozy home -- just in time for us to become a three-some.

Yes, the {first} Little House is finished -- well, as much as a remodel is ever "finished", that is. But this is hardly the last you will see of it. Come on in and take a look!
