The dining room has been a source of extreme frustration. Not going to lie. (Well, I probably couldn’t lie if I wanted to, come to think of it.)
We went from this:
To this uneven mess:
You can’t really tell in this photo, but the drywall closest to the windows in the center actually hangs about 1/2″ below the rest. It was really bad. We lived like this for about 4 months, because although we contacted the original contractor about fixing it, he declined to respond. Then it was August (birthday!!) and not much got done. We interviewed drywall guys in early September, and chose one to hire, but he was going out of town and couldn’t start until the end of the month. Which was fine; I mean, at this point we hadn’t had a dining room ceiling since what, February?
But when he was done… I might be a little in love with the drywall man. Actually, he’s a handy man, and I think we’ll be hiring him again before too long. But I digress. Behold:
Perfect, smooth ceiling. Glorious.
