Ceiling Progress

We made a ton of progress this past week and weekend on the ceiling.  My husband's parents came up again to help us out with the long pieces of molding that needed to be put up on the ceiling.  Due to the length, it was definitely helpful to have two extra people to hold the long boards in place.

At this stage, we have all the molding nailed up onto the ceiling.  Yay!


You can see there are a few bare spots where we already did some sanding.  We have to sand the areas where there are high spots and then spackle them.  Once we clean up the spackle, its time to paint and then the final caulking.

My job so far has been to put the tape on the ceiling while my husband sands.  You can see the painter's tape around a few of the boxes in the two pictures on this post.


So far we really love how the ceiling looks and I'm sure it will look even better once the painting is done and all the blue tape is removed from the walls.

Once we get all the painting done and the pool table is in place, we'll have some folks over to the house for a mini billiards tourney.

Happy Crafting!
