Happy Valentines Day!

First off....Happy Valentine's Day to all my readers! I feel so fortunate to spend the day with the ones I love, especially my mom who is visiting from Arizona!

After Nana gave this little guy his morning bath, we got right to work on the house.


We prepped all the walls and ceiling for priming by wiping them down and touching up dings and scratches with a little drywall mud.


After that we went through a few gallons of primer. (Bare drywall really sucks that stuff up!) I usually do two coats of primer to make sure it's well covered. Besides, primer is always cheaper than paint!


I'll try to put together a post of some prepping/painting tips later this week for you.  But for now, we're taking a break to do a little shopping!
