No gardening last week because of the painting. So, I thought I would take this opportunity to do a run-down of the project. Here is what we did:
3/14/10: We preshopped for the project. We priced out the paint and other things we needed. Also I bought new picture frames for the picture wall and the border. Daily total: $82.45.
3/15/10: We used our credit card rewards to buy more painting supplies. Daily total: $0.00.
3.17/10: We used the rest of our rewards to buy all the primer and the paint: Daily total: $ 122.27.
3/19/10: I bought some more picture frames. Daily Total: $13.13.
3/20/10: We bought a light fixtures, new outlet overs and some electrical supplies. We also rented the scaffold, washed walls and patched cracks. Daily Total: $130.74.
3/21/10: We sanded the repairs and did the final wash down of the walls. Daily Total: $0.00
3/22/10: We primed the walls. Daily Total: $5.85.
3/23/10: We started putting the color on the walls. Daily Total: $ 0.00.
3/24/10: We continued painting and did the faux. Twice:-( We also bought the floating shelves and hung them. We got the twine for the picture wall and the materials we needed to custom frame the windows. Daily Total: $ 147.24.
3/25/10: I finished the faux finish and starting on a full spring cleaning of the room. I vaccuumed, washed the fireplace, the woodwork and the windows. Daily Total: $28.70.
3/26/10: We cleaned the living room carpet and bought more hardware for the custom frame. Daily Total: $77.37.
3/27/10: We put the room back together. We also took back the scaffold and the carpet cleaner. Daily Total: $44.14.
3/28/10: We hung pictures and filled the bookshelves. Daily Total: $25.00.
So there you have it: 13 days/2 people/$676.89. Not bad!!
Now, we still need to custom frame some eagle prints that are going to run us a couple hundred dollars but, that is still redoing a dining room, a living room and a hallway for under $1000.00. Heck, I should be on one of those redecorae on a budget shows on HGTV:-)
