Our night in the kitchen

Sometimes we will be just hanging out and the Reno mood hits us...or else we get to the point where we can't stand something a moment longer! We got to that point last night around 930. The mess on the kitchen wall from where we removed the mini bar (we'll post a pic of what it used to look like was making us crazy. So we pulled the glue off and Garret thought we might as well do a layer of skim coat to smooth things out. (this was my first lesson in skim coating...which I keep referring to as drywalling) Not sure if the neighbour was happy to hear the shop vac going at 10:30pm to clean up all the dust and wall scrapings.
