We picked up a patch kit at the local hardware store (just down the road from us, how fantastic is that). J's dad gave us the basics on how to use it and we now have a patched hole. This picture is before I've sanded, so it's a little rough, but pretty impressive. I think I'll only need to put one more layer on and sand it a bit and this wall will be ready to prime and paint. Hell yeah, I can't wait to get the red paint up on the walls. That's gonna be awesome. Then we'll need to pick up a dining room table at some point, but we already have arts for this part of the room. So that's something. And anyway, I'm more excited about my ability to do home improvement crap, maybe I should consider a career change.
We still have the hole in the floor to deal with (you can see a little bit of it at the bottom of the picture). But I seem to be a little bit more picky when it comes to tile then I thought I would be. As of right now we're just stepping over it and trying to avoid it. Hopefully I'll find something I like soon.
So I'm really going to try and get the last coat of mud up on the walls tonight while J and his band mates work on the studio downstairs. My plan is to finish painting this weekend because I really want to cross the living room off my list. God knows I have a shit ton more painting to do in the rest of the house. Damn, this whole owning a house thing can get exhausting at times ;-)
