Renovation Lesson #104

When your husband tells you to go and buy the kind of caulk that's flexible don't buy silicone caulk, even though it sounds like it's extremely flexible.

Silicone isn't paintable and in the week since I bought silicone caulk we're still trying to scrape it out.

oh no :( chris and i had to do SO much renovation to our house, and it is no fun at all. my least favorite was doing new drywall with all that spackling and sanding. i will NEVER do it again!

good luck with the rest of your projects!

not fun! :( I hate going to Home Depot without knowing the exact brand name of what I have to buy because otherwise I come home and end up not getting the right product! Grr... Hope the rest of the home projects turn out much better!!
