Remember way way way back in the day when I showed you how we had a half-torn down wall in our bedroom?
Chris started on that last Fall, just to peek behind and see what was there. Randomly, a couple of days ago, he decided to try tearing down the rest of it.
I just heard a loud noise, went to see what was going on, and there he was, working away with his crow bar.
It was one of those jobs that takes like 10 minutes and you wonder why you waited a year to do it.
If you squint really hard, it kinda looks like we have a really cool room here. We don’t of course, but now we have a cool wall at least!
The plan is to do some built-in shelving over top and have the brick visible as the back of the shelves, but who knows when that’ll happen. Chris asked me to paint all that unfinished wood framing just so it would look a little more finished until then.
Naturally I just did, like, one five-foot section so now it looks even worse.
Still, pretty cool, huh?
