Let's just say that it was a popular phrase around here today.
The good news is that the kitchen ceiling is almost done! I can't wait to get it finished. It is amazingly different. While I've gotten used to the bathroom, the kitchen is going to take a little longer. The mother is very pleased with it and she's anxious to see it with the trim in place. (That's a Lawrence job for next weekend)
My first task of the day was to try and find some boxes so that we could start clearing out the kitchen. There are five shelves in the kitchen that go around the soffit and end above the window. They are chock full of a variety of knick-knacks of the mother's.
The vast majority of them are glass. They had to be wrapped and packed. Then, there is a collection of copper, some of which will be repainted silver. Those things to be repainted were put in another box. A third box is filled with Americana pieces other than glass.
These are just a few (these are the smallest of the shelves) of the things that had to be packed before the kitchen ceiling work could even begin.
But I finally did get started on the ceiling. It was a challenge from the start, but it finally got a little momentum. It's a job I hope to wrap up later today. I'm glad I took some "before" shots of the kitchen a week or so ago.
It already is changing and by this time next month, it will be a very different place.
