Ben got the sheetrock up on the ceiling and sanded the wood paneled walls. I was determined to paint the walls white, mostly because I wanted to brighten the place up, but Ben had an idea of how beautiful they would be sanded. When I saw what they looked like I had to agree, clean and light with a velvety texture, I fell in love with them.
We planned out where the lights and outlets would go. Two recessed lights over my work area by the window and one over the west window where I plan to have another work area for my computer, I’ll leave the rest to the electrician. The whole back wall will be open for hanging and photographing my work. Ben is attacking a satin on that wall as I write this, spilled paint or something that’s black and gunky.
The electricity goes in next week. It’s supposed to rain this weekend so Jon and I many have to delay scrapping and painting the outside. I’ll paint it white with green trim as it is now, but I’m thinking of painting the door a different color. Something bright, just enough to make it stand out.
