the attic::a wash of white

kilz2 paint does an amazing job of making old walls look brand new again.

even with just a primer coat the room already looks refreshed and renewed (we even managed to put the kids to work on this project).





















































we took down the ceiling fan and will be replacing it with a new light fixture. it was a pain trying to figure out how the stupid thing was hooked up, but aaron managed to get the fan off without pulling down the whole ceiling :). originally, we were going to try and "update" the look of the fan and reinstall it over the stairs. there was no way to install it without going through the crawl space (yuck!), and the amount of time that would have been spent "updating," re-installing and putting the fan back together again was not worth just spending $40-50 on a new fixture. so long fan!












i'm thankful that we are not pressed for time in finishing up the attic all at once. as long as we get the basics done, i'm certain everything else will come together eventually. since it wasn't really a space we regularly used in the first place, it's nice to be able to spread out some of the tasks.

coming up: color.
