|Temporary play space|
The house had not been upgraded for many years, and there were many unpleasant memories associated with it. The advantage is the house is entirely paid for, so all we have to do is pay taxes and utilities. so we set about to redecorate most of the interior and the redecorating involves making every room to suit our needs.
We are childless and pretty much keep to ourselves so we make the rules and break conventional ones. . .like turning the "living-room" into a bedroom! and a Bedroom into a TV/media room. . with a play space!
Unfortunately the kitchen will still function as a kitchen/ eating area. but we are painting everything from the ceiling to the floor. The walls and ceiling are done, and I have been working on the cabinetry, for which we 1. purchased a kit.
first step is taking off doors. . easy
second step is removing all hardware. . tedious
third step is scarping all build up dirt and removing what is visible. . disgusting!
forth step is "de-glossing" a further very intense step I spent the most time and effort upon.
Because I was paying a LOT of attention to details, it was very intense. It felt very spiritual, to tell the truth- it was spiritual. I am super sensitive to cosmic energy and I felt clearly like paying this close attention to every tiny edge and crack and decorative piece, and removing every trace of the past I was establishing a new beginning. Gone are the bad memories, and negative experiences. Out they go into the trash. No one should suffer any of those! Removed!
Our home is a place of peace. And surrender. And Play!
