Today I worked from home and after work I started priming the new living room. I primed all of the molding around the room (even inside the closet). Tomorrow I anticipate that I can do all of the painting of the molding and do it early enough so it dries and I can tape it off so the walls and ceiling will be all ready to be primed and painted.
I enjoy painting, it is the prep work that is a pain in the neck, however if you don’t prep correctly then you will run into trouble as you go. I have already sanded down the walls and the molding and washed it (that was yesterday’s job). I had also taped off the floors and any of the hardware on the doors. When we are finished painting all we will need to do is give the floor a good washing and we will be ready to build the entertainment center that we got from IKEA and put that into the closet. Dad and I will wire the room for the surround sound system that Allison got me a couple years ago and we will also get the decorating going. The color we picked out for the room is called Shabby Shic and it is a tan, looks like a cup of Dunkin Dounuts coffee with extra extra. It is a very nice tan.
While I worked I listened to the podcast called the triple Feature. It is 3 web comic artist who draw movie related comics who talk once a week about movies. I am a few episodes behind and want to catch up so I am current. There is just so much stuff to be entertained by. I swear I will not catch up.
I took more pictures of the room, from each corner and I added them to a new Flickr Set called House Remodel. Here are the 4 corners of the room.
You may notice a purple item on the book shelves in the middle of the room, that is my remote control van that has an iPod attachment. I listened though the speakers on the top of the van. It worked great.
I posted a few cool things on my other blogs today. My He Said recap of last nights Lost episode: The Brig, on Flatwater Tech I found out how to add the nifty Favicon to each of my blogs. I also have Joost invites if anyone wants them, drop me a comment and I’ll send you one. I sent one to Elizabeth this morning. And I even updated The Wired Kayaker with a post about My Rack. And back to BenSpark 2: Electric Boogaloo with some fun tidbits of information. But you would know all this and more if you were subscribed to the BenSpark Superfeed.
