Change in the Air

I had quite a busy day today.   
I gave in and hired a man to come install my recessed  lights in the kitchen.
I'm tired and the thought of trying to pull electrical wires under the
ceiling did not appeal to me.. I'm good but not that good!

I think I've had these little lights sitting in the bag for several months and
finally I've had them installed.  Only trouble is, "Now I want a few more"
One more in the kitchen and 6 in the dining room.  I'm going
to remove the chandelier and go for the 'Clean look'!

So far I'm really happy with the look.  The new lights were put on a dimmer switch  and it's perfect lightening...
Next step "Smooth the ceiling" and that part of the "Ever on going Reno" is DONE!   Then to finish the wallpaper.

While the electrical guy was working on the lights, I was taking out the carpeting on the stairs.
This will be another post because it may take me a week to get this project finished.  It's not as easy as I predicted.  
So until then!

I've got a million little carpet tacks to remove. Measure each stair step for the new plywood to be cut.  Then paint!  (What color?  What else, White!
 I'll be back... More than likely bruised and sore,  but I'll be back!

Until then I may not leave the house... might just get my hair done and sit in a chair mostly.  Maybe a mani....  but then that may get ruined next week.. Ok, no manicure! 

"Happy Super Bowl Weekend"

Sandy, you work SO hard! I love the new recessed lighting and how it makes the kitchen so light and airy. And now you're attacking the carpeting on your stairs.....I should be doing that too, but don't know what to do with it after removal..I'm going to watch and see how your project turns out. Staying tuned!

Love the new lights in your kitchen. Why new plywood on the stairs? Can't you just paint them? I tell ya woman you amaze me at the things you do. If you didn't have that bad ticker that needs the PACEMAKER no telling what you'd do. Are you sure the doctor says it's okay for you to do all this?

Puhleeeze be careful. Can't have you getting hurt.

Hey super woman.. when you're done there you can sit in front of my fireplace and relax.. Then you can give me some good tips on redoing my floor.. :) I think the recessed lighting adds so much to your kitchen. You will love the dimmer too.

Be careful with all the staples and tacks on the steps. When I was ripping up the ones in my living room I actually knealed on a couple.. that hurts!

Sometimes it is best to leave things in the hands of others! I can't wait to see your stairs.
