After a myriad of outdoor projects and the eminent arrival of Fall rains, I moved my motivation indoors at the beginning of October. This next project was already brewing in my mind while I was working outside.
I had a plan to caulk the remaining seams in two of the bedrooms and repaint. I had such good success in the bathroom from earlier this year that I was eager to get started.
I don't have any photos of this project because honestly, seams of walls and ceilings just don't translate well in a photo. If you've ever done any caulking work you know what I mean.
One of the biggest problems I ran into was an old patch / fix from the former tenant. I'm still not exactly sure how to make a permanent fix, but for now I have at least made it look better and used a small piece of sheetrock to patch a hole in the ceiling. Originally there was a really long piece screwed to the ceiling tile that also covered an old water stain.
I just put a few coats of Kilz paint over the stain and it was fine. (Reminder: this mobile had previously been rescued from Mt. St. Helen's). Now of course it has a full roof-over structure, so these water stains were quite old.
The overall goal here is to eliminate the need for trim and give it a more finished look. I did indeed accomplish this! Floor trim, of course, remaining.
There's nothing like a fresh coat of paint! Both bedrooms got a country white which will be greatly appreciated come the long dark winter here.
