Beam Me Up, Starship.

Whooo! I am finally back! Talk about technical difficulties! Thank goodness I am smart enough to figure it out. Though it's been a bit quiet on the blog front I have been decently busy working on projects around the house. One of the big ones?

The ceilings and beam! Yayyy! Finally.

Remember the fabulous and wonderful (sarcasmmmm) before?

A great view of the kitchen ceiling right after I did all the cabinets and such:

This picture was just from back in March, not too terribly long ago really.

Here's the "in progress" photos of the living room paint job, notice tacky ceilings do not compliment the lovely new walls...

A big difference already being made just by painting some of it. Check out the difference just in the trim! And yes. I stood on the stools to paint the walls. No it's not safe. Don't say I told you to try it but it is cheaper than a ladder.

Are you ready for the awesome after-ness? Ignore any house messes you see. Simply focus on the ceilings. There are a few spots that need to be gone over again but check this out! On the yellow stripes I used KILZ UpShot. It comes in a spray paint can and you just aim it upwards. I used about four for the main living area.

Here's the same view from the doorway you saw in the picture from March. Wayyy better. Good bye you homely 80's beam!

The kitchen now! Looks so much better, though I did find out I have to replace the entire skylight. That sucks. A lot.

I am so excited about all of the changes that I have gotten done in the last few months. Now if only I could find a full-time teaching job my life would be 100% fabulous! I thought that I had a good shot at one job but someone with more experience beat me out. It's a struggle but i know teaching is what I am built to do so I will keep trying. 

Thanks for bearing with me as I fixed those technical difficulties!


  1. First I want to say that I'm so excited for a new post! Yay!

    OMG! The ceiling looks amazing painted white! It made such a huge difference! The rooms look so much bigger and brighter now!

  2. I can't believe they are stealing your content. Isn't there anything you can do? that's just plain old rotten. Oh, look who I'm following in friend Sam! yay. and she's right, it looks so much bigger.
