A Good Day

As the title suggests, a lot got done at the rent house. I made a good dent in the list by getting the kitchen painted, and 95% of the stairwell and laundry room. So that means that the two biggest projects are almost done. I'll still have to tame "The devil is in the details",but I have the full day tomorrow and July 3rd to get things squared away. I've been gradually bringing my tools and other items back to the house, so that I'm not loaded down at the end with a full day's running back and forth.

Finished Product

After floating the wall and repainting the kitchen seating area

Bottom of the stairwell with the new flooring installed

The stairwell is really high, and I didn't want the ladder on the stairs!

The staircase is partially finished.

I'll still have to run around and spot paint some trim work, and a few other areas. The risers are painted the same color as the walls, and I'll paint the steps a dark brown color. Anyways, The List....

The List:

  • Spray 10% bleach solution on roof moss to kill it. (2nd of 3 applications)
  • Remove refrigerator
  • 2 new kitchen blinds
  • 1 new blind in master bathroom
