Last week (and a half) I showed you a new project room that I started on a whim while waiting for my Pantry countertop finish to dry. I framed in my office walls including a rough in for a pocket door. However the pocket door frame kit that I purchased was missing some key components so I had to wait until we got back from our road trip to finish it up.
Guess what I installed right when I woke up morning after we got back home?
Door tested and approved!
And then immediately removed so the finishing could begin. I DIDN’T EVEN PAINT IT! I want a really dark door and thought about painting it black but went with some dark stain instead and love it.
I even got some drywall installed on the pocket door wall. The adjacent wall is still open because I’m going to plank it so decided not to waste time/materials to install drywall under it. I had to rip out and trim the existing plank wall before I could move forward on the new planks…and I have 20 other more important projects in the works right now so I’m leaving it as is until I have another 4 hours of waiting for something to dry and then I’ll knock it out! (In 4 hours – 5 days! You know how it goes.)
BUT, I did complete the drywall on both sides of the wall that is getting drywall so at least I finished the drywall for that room. Until I skim coat! Shudddddder.
But like I always say, “Progress is progress no matter how small”! I’m making tons of small progress all over the place. My whole house is a hot mess but a whole lot of tiny steps forward will eventually add up to “everything is done” so I’m staying jazzzzzed about what I’m getting done. Even when one cabinet takes me 4 days to build. I’m staying jazzzzzed.
Wine bottle and stemware storage cabinet in progress. Stay tuned! I keep thinking it will be finished yesterday so I have NO IDEA when it will really happen — but hopefully it will be worth the trouble! 🙂
