We have been working hard in the attic! I finished staining the new wood paneling on the ceiling to match the old wood.
Then, I white-washed everything! It took about a week plus a weekend. While I did that, Brian was finishing trim and molding on the closets and bookshelves.
After Thanksgiving we will finish up the trim work and caulking, clean up and organize, and then we can install our new carpet. We bought carpet squares so we can install them ourselves and they are half the price of regular carpet! I also ordered a new daybed with trundle bed for guests (I hope it will fit up the spiral staircase!!):
