Time to hear a grown man cry.


For the past week I have been removing wall paper. After a day of sitting picking off little pieces of loose paper I remembered Joe going on about a product called Gardz but I couldn't get it. Well I looked a little harder and I found a small paint shop that had it. (Don't tell Joe but it's a hell of a product). So the next day I spent putting Gardz on everything. Then skim coated the walls, sanded and skimmed again and sanded. Then primed then fixed all the little imperfections. I'm telling you these walls were as smooth as a baby's butt. Well I went back today because they were supposed to have the paint color picked out. When I walked in the H/O said there has been a change of plans, her sister came to visit and decided we need knockdown texture on the walls.
