Here’s another one to file under “things Tess does on days off and evenings.” For the past month or so I’ve been focused on finishing the dining room: pre-painting as many pieces of wood as possible, waiting for the carpenters to put them all together and nail them up, and then completing the project with wood-filling and painting. I finished painting the wainscoting earlier this week, and finished the coffered ceiling around 1am last night.
This year-and-a-half-long nightmare is done, as far as my projects go. Saying I’m exhausted would be an understatement, but I’m also relieved. Can’t wait to spend my weekends doing other things! To all of you who have helped, listened, encouraged, or just put up with me during this renovation, seriously, thank you.
More on Flickr, as always.
