After putting studs in, he had to cut a piece of sheet rock and fit it in, and then secure it.
Next step is the "mudding"
This is where it's about done, he sprayed some stuff on it to give it the same texture the walls already have. You can see where I've started painting the rest of the wall.
Not a great picture, but gives you a better idea of the color I'm painting the one wall. I'll post another one, hopefully tomorrow when the TV gets mounted and the wall behind where the TV will be is also painted the same color of blue. Should be nice.
SO... I shelled out about $200 for sheet rock, screws, mud, paint, a shelf & holder, etc today. (and lunch *smiles*). I also then shelled out over $400 for a year's worth of contacts & a new pair of glasses. My last ones disappeared and I haven't found them since. Who knows WHAT happened to them. But, since I don't have insurance for glasses any more, I thought I would go ahead and use the prescription before it expires in July to buy another pair.
Having said that... one of the things I did on my list of errands today, was that I went to DMV and got my driver's license updated with my new address. She asked if I was wearing contacts, and I told her I wasn't... that I don't really need them, so she asked if I wanted to re-take my eye test (I haven't done it in a couple years), so I said sure... and I passed without contacts or glasses. Aren't your eyes supposed to get worse when you get older?? *smiles* So... I no longer have any restrictions on my license (yea!).
Guess that's about it for now... I'm going to go work on that last wall and will post some tomorrow, it's about bedtime.
