Lest you think I had a leisurely weekend, what follows is proof positive that I worked my hiney off. Well, not off. Not even a little bit off. But I did work pretty darn hard.
Without further ado… our dining room.
BEFORE. Then after. Just so you know.
Please forgive the very poor photos. I took them on my iPhone, I cannot seem to use my Nikon in the house for anything larger than a dinner plate.
Thankfully my kid’s heads are smaller than dinner plates.
Onto the pictures!
So… so… 1989!
(No making fun of the dirty dog bed. I just moved, you know. And if you must know, I’ve already thrown it into the washer.)
a little spackle… a little primer… no more edges!
And yes, I did paint right over the wallpaper. Well, first I put a solid coat of primer over the wallpaper and then painted. Why? Because I’m lazy. And because I pulled the wallpaper down in our bedroom and it took me a full 4 days to complete that room.
I’m still having nightmares in which I’m standing, ankle deep, in wallpaper scraps.
Not. worth. it.
So far we’ve knocked out the family room, living room, hallway and stairway, girls’ room and our bedroom. We’ve got a couple more rooms to go, but it’s starting to feel a lot more like home ’round here!
