the all-seeingeyeMcAllaster House-Renovations: Living Room, Part 3

Walls done, trim except for windows done.

The built-in almost painted.

Every one of the 167 year old windows has flaking paint from the condensation.

Ceiling and walls are painted. Now begins the endless miles of trim, and painting the carcass of the built-in cabinet. I'll have to hold off on the drawers until next month, as the budget is beginning to get a bit thin.

Finished the walls this weekend and got the lights put back. Except for the windows, most of the trim is finished. The windows will be a time-burner. They all have to be prepped and primed to take care of the condensation damage. The body of the built-in is mostly painted as well.

Just got the first estimate for wood slat blinds for all of these windows. Eeep! That's going to leave a mark.
