Progress on the kid's sleeping loft marches on.
If you want to see all the posts for the building of the loft, click on the little label underneath this post that says "kids loft", next to the time stamp- that will bring up all of the posts for that topic.
Here is Sky in the midst of mudding and sanding the drywall.
We have dust everywhere...through the whole house....in my closet even. I shed a tear or two and then get out the mop.
I can't paint a wall even close to passable. I accept that and move on...and pick out the colors and let Sky do it.
I painted the girl's room pink when we moved in...
Pink was voted off the island....
They asked for something "forest-y"...what the heck am I supposed to do with that?? I opted for green and blue. They also wanted sponge-painting like I had done in their room in
our old house...I'm going to try to rag one wall with blues and greens and browns. I haven't figured out which wall or walls yet, it's a zen thing...the inspiration will hit soon.
Sky thinks the inspiration needs to move this week, but I tell him "peace out"...these things can't be rushed..I'm an artist.
Sky will just give me that look until I do it.
We make a good team.
Here's the loft and the laminate floor Sky is installing. He is a constructive artist of sorts...but he also has this weird love for plywood. He was going to put plywood on the floor. He re-assured me when I looked horrified at this, that he would
sand it smooth and paint it. I rained on his parade and told him that plywood is for temporary, emergency support...like boarding up broken windows and such...not a permanent, finished solution.
He remains unconvinced. But, he went out and bought me some Pergo.
He's a good man.
Here are Sky and Demi-Sky putting in the railing. I want natural birch twigs for the railing and ladder....we are having trouble finding a wood store that carries this. I will continue to dream.
When I find it, I plan to have Sky rip this out and replace it.
Shh..don't tell him.
