Day 55 and I'm Thankful

I'm thankful that one room is completely done at the Peach Palace.  The half bathroom.

I'm also thankful that many of the other rooms are almost there.  Other than the flooring that will be replaced, the only major projects left are the new stairs, the small back bedroom and the upstairs bedroom... which are still mostly untouched.   All of the other rooms are down to final painting projects, well and the above mentioned flooring.  And speaking of paint.  We've used 4 gallons of primer, 3 gallons of ceiling paint, 8 1/2 gallons of "regular" paint and almost 2 gallons of oil based paint (for the cabinets and trim).  No wonder my hands ache.

I thought we'd be done with the Peach Palace long ago... like October... now I'm hoping for an early December finale.

To my fellow American bloggers, enjoy your Thanksgiving tomorrow.  And if you are traveling, be safe.

Looking forward to a LONG weekend of family, food, Christmas decorating and of course painting,
Chris at Red Gate Farm


  1. Chris, it looks so great. You guys are doing an awesome job on the PP. Happy Thanksgiving Gal--and Happy decorating :)

  3. The half bath has been completely transformed! It looks fabulous! Oh, I feel your pain ... I am not a fan of painting although I always appreciate it when it's finished. Well ... this is such a big holiday for you guys; I've heard it's even bigger than Christmas. I know some gals that are heading south of the border to do some shopping tomorrow. I hear the deals are outrageous! I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday Chris, with your family and friends and take a little break from your hard work at the Peach Palace and enjoy the day! Blessings & hugs ~ Lisa
