this weekend i had the parquet floor in the kitchen/breakfast room professionally redone. The rest of the room (woodwork/molding/painting/de-popcorning the ceiling) was done by myself. I even spend a day re-texturing the ceiling with vintage swirly circles that are common in my neck of the woods in old homes. I tried to take a picture to show the ceiling swirls. In fact I tried to take an 'after' picture of the room, but you will notice its dark. So why would I take a picture of a room I am so proud of without the lights on? Well, the day after the project was officially done, i turned the kitchen lights on... and then ...pop pop pop.... the lights in half of the house go out, and so does the air conditioning. Circuit breaker is fine. Long story short, 3 new circuit lines have to be wired in the attic and walls this weekend. The AC, kitchen, dining room, fridge, and courtyard were all on the same circuit... BIG no no. Gotta love old-fashioned wiring jobs. Anyways during the day everything is beautiful, and i have the AC hooked up to an extension cord (very ghetto). Happy hump day! I'll post some decent redo pictures when the lights are back on.
