It may not sound too exciting, but I'm just thrilled! I'm going to get all the drywall troublespots that kept me from painting fixed up so I can move forward and paint some rooms. Some of you might remember the mirrored wall in my LR that has panelling behind that-GETTING THAT DRYWALLED! In addition to that, I have an old 70's intercom leaving a hole in each:
That's getting fixed up too!
Oh, there's also a big hole in the kitchen wall where a fancy 70's wallmount phone backplate was, and that was hard one because I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted another wall phone there or not. If you look at the kitchen picture below, you can see the phone cord coming out from the hole covered with my son's school art, right next to the ugly intercom. Anyway, we removed that backplate and threw it out, but plugged the phone into the jack and just set it on the floor until now. Finally I decided to get an old wall phone off eBAy, so that plan for that huge hole is to close it up and install the telephone cable box there. The phone is a black Western Electric 554 with a rotary dial, from the 60's. I was thinking of getting a red one, but I chickened out and got black to be safe. If I change my mind later I can always get a red one later, and install the black one in my laundry room.
So there you have it-I'm elated over smooth walls and a really old phone! :laugh: My next challenge is baseboards-gotta get some of those!
