Apartment Reno: Painting Cabinets and Prepping Walls

Hey there,

SuperHouls and I took a break from the Woodlawn apartment renovation this weekend to knock off projects on our own never-ending “To-Do” list.  I’ll tell you all about that in a future post.  Today I’m sharing a quick update on the apartment progress. D & D have been working harder than they ever imagined.  The cabinet doors have been removed from the cabinets…

…on one side.  The paint sprayer worked for about a millisecond and then started clogging.  Yes, we cleaned it…over and over.  After much frustration, D threw in the towel and went back to the tried and true paint brush.  Slow and steady.

Meanwhile, back at the apartment, the other D, my son, was busy spackling and sanding walls in preparation for paint.  It’s that point in the project where everyone is feeling a bit overwhelmed.   Despite checking items off the “to-do” list, the corner still hasn’t been rounded. The best remedy for this?  Make something pretty!  So D & D spent time getting one room primed and painted.  Progress is a beautiful thing.  Here’s a sneak peek at one of the gray painted bedrooms with a vibrant feature wall…


The floors are being sanded and polyurethaned this week.  Hopefully we will have more “pretty” after photos to share next week.  Stay tuned!

Oh, and hey, if you enjoyed reading this, why not share it or follow me, or both!

Be well,


While you’re waiting for the “pretty” after photos…how cute am I?
