Dressing Room

The room looks so fresh. It’s like a new canvas ready to be brought to life!


Our latest project! We accomplished a lot during our three day weekend. This is what we have done so far!

The plan: Put up plank walls on the side were the vanity will go and the wall by the doorway.

First, we put up tar paper for extra sound barrier and insulation. We ripped 1/2 inch plywood into 5 inch planks. We could of used 3/8 inch plywood, but since the wall is an exterior wall we wanted extra insulation, which in our home we lack. Then we sanded the edges to smooth them a little. Dale used the nail gun to put the planks on the wall and I used the meter saw to cut the planks to their proper size. It helps when you have two people working together, it makes the job much easier. My husband also put up new trim around the entry doorway. It took us two days to finish the walls. The third day, I sanded the plank walls and primed and painted.
