Real Life Reno Blog: Post #8

14 Jul 2018

Since the last post I have:-

* Removed green wallpaper around the splashback in the kitchen (including black contact)
* Also removed wallpaper from the bedroom. We hired a steamer to help remove this and it came off beautifully.
* Repaired and caulked all the walls in the 3 bedrooms and the hallway
* Everything except the kitchen is undercoated
* Pressure washed the deck and undercoated the railings
* Used 16 tip tickets to remove junk from the premises
* Part way through spray painting the outside a grey colour.

Finishing The Tiling In The Kitchen.
Just about finished the tiling in the kitchen, just a little corner to go now. The idea of the cups and bits and pieces on the ground is just to identify what's still wet. So obviously the ones without it are dry so I know where to walk. I'm really happy with how these tiles have come up.

Getting Rid Of All The Junk At The Tip
We're just at the tip now using our free waste vouchers from all the neighbours. It's great to get rid of all this junk and I really appreciate the generosity of the neighbours, as it did save us a lot of money.
