He’s at it AGAIN! Seriously, every time Mrs. Dreamer is away for the weekend – the Mr. gets all sneaky and crafty. IT. IS. AWESOME. Last time, he planted gorgeous rose bushes in our backyard – finishing up the raised flower bed section and creating a beautiful focal point from our back windows.
This time, while Mrs. Dreamer was away (see where on the Week 23 post on this page), he started the NURSERY!
He took on a task we’ve been debating for months – the dreaded popcorn ceiling:
Armed with a water bottle, a handy dandy tool from Home Depot, and a trash bag…
…Mr. Dreamer got to work and scraped that ceiling clean like the skin peeling off a bad sunburn.
The ceiling still needs a bit of work – but the hard part is over. We’ve already purchased the paint for the nursery walls, ceiling and a furniture-DIY-makeover project. Those are all next on the list… after a good vacuum and perhaps assembling the crib!
This was a labor-intensive and time-consuming project (3 hrs for a 10×12 room – mostly because the “popcorn” had been painted over, basically sealing it to the ceiling – how’s that play on words?!)… but cheap!
Total cost = $16.99 (for the handy dandy tool from Home Depot)
