Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

What a week it was!

I spent the entire week painting the sunroom.

If you have been following along on Instagram, you know how tough it was painting around those window panes!

Several of you suggested using painting mask while I was working.

And I considered using it before starting.

However, there was so much green around each window pane, I would have to be careful painting around it either way.

Priming the walls in my sunroom makeover

So I just small brushed it and it’s finally gone!

I can’t wait to show you how it all looks.

Because the room looks bigger, brighter, and you can see the outside gardens now!

I’m so glad it’s almost done.

Here’s what the sunroom looks like after priming it all.

Huge difference, am I right?

And now, back to the dining room!

This week, my walls will get repaired and we’ll paint it this week.

Two rooms down and several to go.

Bring it on!

How to Keep Fresh Flowers Longer

What’s Happening at Bricks ‘n Blooms

It was a fun week on the blog!

This week we recapped Part 1 of the dining room renovation HERE.

I’m glad we are not fixing the walls in there ourselves because it is much more involved than I thought it would be.

Eventually, we will add a chair rail, but we are not ready to do it just yet.

In good time though.

Hopefully, this is the last week we will see the dining room in this state. Fingers crossed!
