I found someone to plaster my walls and it should be done by the end of the week, hooray! The plaster guy said he'll even leave the scaffolding at my home for a bit so I can paint the walls. I'll also need it to install a hanging light in the middle of the room.
Can you see my new wire stool? I picked it up on CL for $70, the stool will eventually go with an island I plan on having made for the middle of the room.
