This weekend was really great. First? The highs were in the 60's. You guys, this is March in Minnesota. It's usually snowing and cold. Sunshine and 60's was exactly what we needed.
Second, we spent Saturday afternoon with friends we haven't spent much time with lately. It was fun and relaxing and so great to catch up.
And then we conned Tim into coming over and we finished the ceiling project. And that was awesome.
We're thrilled with how they look. THRILLED. And while there's still a lot of nails to cover up and seams to fill, it feels so great to have made this much progress so quickly.
Plus? It looks kind of awesome.
(In our humble opinion)
And then it got better.
Lights! We never really loved our track lights, so we were excited (but a little nervous) to replace them.
I had my heart set on schoolhouse lights (very possibly influenced by Kim's super awesome schoolhouse lights). We found these on Amazon for about $50 a piece which was perfect for this project.
We also replaced our pendants with a single mini schoolhouse pendant. I know it's hard to see in the photo below, but the shape is nearly identical to the larger ones.
Finishing up the ceiling and installing the lights was a huge confidence booster. I know it's not actually done yet, but it looks so much more polished than our highly-damaged old ceiling did.
So in short - we're huge fans of the new ceiling and the new lights. Here's to productive weekends!
But now, can you help us out? We're not quite sure what to do with the seams between the boards. Caulk? Just paint? Wood filler? Anybody have any suggestions?
