Sewing Room Part One

I really wanted to pay someone to paint my sewing room-to-be, but all the quotes came in around $1000. That's a lot of potential fabric! So I'm sucking it up and I'm going to tackle it one job at a time.

First up is filling in all the holes and cracks. This house is a 50s weatherboard, so it tends to move and crack a lot. We've also had a lot of pictures hung in that room over the years. My local hardware store was very helpful, recommending a product which could be applied and scraped away on one go. Too easy!

So I've been around the room filling all the holes and long cracks. Bella has very carefully inspected my work; hopefully she approves.

The only thing that has me stumped is this headless screw. I have no idea how to get it out of the wall!

Hopefully this weekend will be sanding, then the painting can begin!

Ouch! That's a lot of fabric money. Is the screw below the surface? Why not just fill the hole otherwise you'd need needle nose pliers.

A fine drill bit in the drill might get that little sucker out for you Kate. Love Bella inspecting the work! Love it. :)
