I sanded and washed most of the walls in preparation for painting, which I planned to do before the floors were refinished. But as the timeline dragged on and on, I decided I could paint after I moved in--but there was no way I could have the floors refinished after I moved in. So I had the floors done while I was away camping a few weeks back. Refinishing floors kicks up a wee bit o' dust. The good folks at Delago Grundl Hardwood Floors cleaned up as best as they could, but stopped short of washing all the walls down. They even vacummed all the wooden blinds which were filthy when I bought the place (Thanks guys!).
So now that I am painting, I have the extra step of washing down all the walls...again. You are probably thinking, just how much dust could there be? Do you really need to clean again? See exhibit one below.
It's not a wall, but it's easier to see just how much dust there is. Thank goodness the closet is the only place with shelves right now. On a happier note, the closet is now done and I have started to move in some stuff.
|Buh bye brown!|
|Ah, turquoise, you make me happy.|
|Hello stuff! I missed you.|

Not so well.
I hope to finish the master bedroom and bathroom this weekend so the sink and toilet can be re-installed. I should be able to move my bed in next week and start actually living at the house. OMG!
