Walls and ceilings..and a giant copper flying pig

I haven't posted much over the last few weeks because the progress wasn't photogenic. The guys have been sanding and caulking which is so important for the finished result, but doesn't convey well in pictures. But now I'm excited to see some progress and share it with ya'll. 

All the walls have two coats of poly-acrylic so they have a nice sheen but don't look stained or overdone.

The bathtub arrived.

I don't know how much it weighs, but I do know I will be worthless to try and move it.

Last weekend, the guys primed the ceiling and trim.

They also started priming the cabinets in the kitchen.

While they were working, I tried to stay out of the way--by heading to the antiques festival in downtown Fayetteville and Round Top.  I found a cute towel rack for the bathroom and acrylic footrest, among other treasures.

By the time I got back, they had moved on to painting the ceiling, thankfully wearing safety gear.

We decided on high-reflective high-gloss white on the ceilings to brighten up the dark walls.

This is still wet, and I'm not sure how glossy it will be once it dries.

The electrician is supposed to come on Thursday to start installing light fixtures, so I took the first car load of light fixtures.

I have to admit it was intimidating to head down I-10 with a trunk full of crystal chandeliers.  But it turned out OK.  Whew...

Now as a complete aside...I found one more treasure at Round Top that I'm keeping for myself.  Meet Ziggy Piggy.

Round Top...because you didn't know you needed a giant copper flying pig until you saw it smiling back at you!

That's all from Wisteria Bend for now.
