MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Proof we're working.....

 MALE BONDING

Jack and Shawn working on the kitchen floor today.  The old tiles required the use of the heat gun to get them off.  The new ones are looking beautiful though and they have nearly finished...only a few odd little pieces to cut and put down tomorrow. 
Shawn is now a pro with the heat gun!

I, being a wife of thirty one years, know full well that the best way to get a big job like the kitchen floor done by the men...is to stay the heck out of the road and tackle my own project....in this case, painting my studio.
I have the first coat on the walls and it looks awful, but that's the way painting always looks.  
Tomorrow I hope to get the second coat on and hopefully start at the trim.

I do not envy either of those projects. Hope you have a nice weekend perhaps a little rest and relaxation. Hugs, Kim

I have found that it's best to stay out of the way too. So glad that things are getting done. It's always a good feeling when you have finished re-decorating. Especially when it's all cleaned up of tools, drop cloths, etc.

Love the new floor that is going down. By the time the painting is finished you will feel like you are in a whole new kitchen.

Lucky you to get a new floor!! That's on my list for the kitchen. And at least you're doing something to your studio...I look at mine and just think about all that needs to be done!

Like the new floor, it looks like a whole new kitchen. Your tantalising hint at the colour of your studio is promising something stunning.
