Demolition, Family

I didn’t cry at my wedding but I shed tears over this brick.

I’m so happy I could cry. And I think I might have shed a tear or two…but then again, it could be from the crazy dust that never seems to go away.

All of you have been so encouraging about our “exposed brick” project…you’ve sent in countless suggestions and I’ve read every single one out loud to my husband! I gotta be honest…it kinda feels like we have a team rooting for us and the house!!

You read in my last post how we scraped, brushed, vacuumed and then sprayed to get the plaster and mortar off the brick.

Here’s the before…

And the after…

I really think it turned out nicely. Another comparison…


And finally (in case you don’t believe me) – this is me NOT CRYING at my wedding…


Happily weeping (on the inside) over my wall. 🙂
