A New Contraption

Remember a couple of weeks ago I mentioned 4 strapping young men (my son's friends) were to help load boxes down from my studio? Well, luck be have it.....one of the guy's father has this contraption and volunteered the use of it to us. Did cha ever know there is a sheet rock sander coupled with a vacuum that minimized dust? I didn't, but it made sense. I wish we had this contraption about 4 years ago when it came to finishing off our house. It would of been nice.

My husband had just started using this new contraption in this photo. You can see how well it sanded from the spackle in the right handed corner, as compared to the spackle in the left. We did this whole room in about 2 hours when in reality it would of taken 2 days.


Now let's get some paint on this puppy! C&G Design

Wow! This is going to be lovely. Can't wait to see the end result. The shape of this room is adorable. I especially wanted to thank you for the kind words you have to me on my blog in regard to my recent situation.

Wow, that is a great machine!!! Wonder if they had it 28 years ago when we built our house. On the other hand I guess I really do not wanna know as I would be mad at myself for not having one. Looks like good progress is being made on the craft room.

I think I am really loosing it as I forgot to come here yesterday. Another week like this and I might as well give up, no, not really.
