From time to time we post an update on Hallie (our daughter) and Nick's progress with the little brick Tudor in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood. Recently they finished their bedroom. Hallie writes:
Then, trim was stripped and sanded and cracks in the plaster were dug out, primed, taped, and patched. Old knob and tube wiring was replaced with new. This resulted in additional outlets and a wonderfully handy wall mounted light in the closet. Oh, and a smoke detector for our safety.
The ceiling was skim coated and the walls textured with a brush and knocked down with a trowel. Later, Nick also wiped the texture with a sponge to soften sharp edges to better match the texture in the living room and dining room.
Then, she was primed from baseboard to ceiling. "Oooh....Ahhh!"
The finish: everything painted, brass switch and outlet plates installed, and drapery rod mounted. HWJ
