DAY 2 & 3

So today is actually Day 3 but let's talk about yesterday!
I was too tired to blog last night; I didn't think you would mind.
So when we painted on the first day it took us almost 10 hours. We didn't want to have to go through that again with the second coat, so we borrowed a paint sprayer!!

Riley had some trouble with it at first...

but after 5 hours (ha!) he got it working and finished the store in 3 hours!!! Wish we had the paint sprayer the first day.

Next on our list was taking out the carpet.

Today we continued with taking up the carpet and tearing up tiles. We're renting a tile floor stripper tomorrow to make the process move a little faster.
So, yea, that's where we're at.
I'm exhausted friends. See ya tomorrow!!


  1. wow, that's a lotta work! great progress in a short time!

  2. oh man, that looks like TONS of work! I hope you have the a/c working in there! i love seeing the progress you guys are making!

  3. I peeked in and it was awesome!

  4. I can't wait to see it all come together! And to see the colors of the floors and ceiling! :)

  5. I love the play by play and it looks like you have a really great helper!

    Is "The Felt Bird" going to be an online store as well?

  6. Yay! Goodbye to "The Office" carpeting!!!

    You really need to put little Dexter to work. He's gotta earn his keep! ;) Aww.
