Well the mortar worked great this time. Remember...don't use old mortar.
Today I started by varnishing wood, mainly because I needed the counter trim pieces varnished so I could put them in place. This had to be done before I could grout the tile.
So for half the day I varnished.
After varnishing most of the trim boards, I found that the counter trim pieces that I varnished first, were dry. So I installed them and then grouted the entire kitchen counter.
Here it is (The sink is just set in place to see how it looks):
We are really happy with how the grout turned out.
Next we installed the rest of the master bedroom lights and made sure they worked.
There are 4 lights like these in the master bedroom.
Next we installed the two top bunk lights and tested them.
Next I decided to caulk all the places where the wood paneling meets the ceiling.
Here is a before pic:
That looks better!
I was dying to see what the trim would look like in the bunks so I cut a piece and set it in place:
I think the color combo looks great!
Should have more tomorrow!
