The kitchen painting, tiling and ceiling repair was dealt a major setback last week when George got the flu.  He did a little work each day, but progressively felt worse as the week went on.  Finally, he took a few days to rest and repair his health–after much advice to do so!

So today, he was ready to sand the ceiling patch and the cabinets.  He is a perfectionist even when it comes to taping off the cabinets with newspaper.  We’ll see how much that helped keep the dust out when we take the paper off later…

Tonight and tomorrow, we grout the tile and prime everything.  And then we paint!  Here’s George looking extremely dusty, after 5 or 6 hours of sanding.

what a mess!  (yeah, the room too)

He does clean up pretty nicely!  Stay tuned for the final results–by next Monday for sure.
