Remodeling is rough. I’m wiped out. We finally finished the main room of the basement last night.
Here’s what we did this weekend:
We started with sanding.
Then we tarped and taped everything.
Then we textured the walls using an air compressor and a hopper.
Then we scraped the walls (for the knockdown look).
Then we sanded again.
Then we wiped the walls down.
Then we primed.
Then we painted one coat on the ceiling and one coat on the walls.
(Then we watched the Broncos lose their first pre-season game to the Bengals. Booo.)
Then last night we painted the final coat on the ceiling and the final coat on the walls.
Then we cleaned everything up, including getting some of the drywall mud out of the carpet.
Then we put the washer and dryer back and I started a load of laundry.
And the crazy thing is that we have get to do this all over again with the basement bedroom.
Oh, and we’re also going to paint the bathroom down there too. Joy.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many knots have formed in my shoulder. Oh, and my hands are officially out of commission because they’re numb from all the painting. I’m not kidding. And don’t even get me started on my feet.

Hey, at least I’m not bored right?
I keep telling J, he’d better consider himself lucky. Not all pregnant ladies would be so nice.
