Sixteen on Center


Good Morning to all of you.
  It has been somewhat of a slow start here in northern Iowa as we had some freezing precipitation last night and this morning.

Thought I would share with you the latest happenings in our household.
We have another graduation coming this May and always try and get a few household fixes/remodels taken care of.

Well, I have had ONE outlet in my "room" for a VERY long time.  I decided it was about time that I get organized and get my "poop in a group" as my youngest would say. 


I won't go into all the detail as to the exact way this project got started (it might make me look bad). :)

Needless to say, my "room" has now grown to insulating, wiring and sheet rocking the rest of the basement.
I just wanted 4 walls and some outlets!!


This is my room and it is rather large 24 x 16.  Dare I say almost too big?

I got this hair-brained idea that it CAN'T be that hard to mud and tape...........well, if you hold your tongue just right it's not too bad.
I watched a you-tube video and dug in......yes, I did NOT tell my husband....... for the obvious reasons!!
I did 1 coat on the largest wall and then waited for the critique.
I guess I did okay as I got the go-ahead to move forward.  Should I be proud?  I think not.  My husband was MORE than happy to hand over the tools, mud and tape! 


This morning I did an inside corner and put the second coat on two walls.  FYI to self...............don't drink A LOT of coffee before mudding...........it's hard to have a steady hand. :)

As the project progresses I will show you more pictures. 
 I still have to decide what color to paint the room and how to organize it.  

If you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know.  This is the first time I have ever had a "studio" of my own.

P.S.  Since starting this project I know how to wire an outlet and mud and tape walls BUT under no circumstances for hire!!
