I have been on that ladder 100 times. It sure looks easy when other people take on remodeling projects! Painting is easy, but not removing wallpaper! But now it's done, and I conceded to having the painter come in and texture the walls and then paint. My goal was something light and airy, spa-like. There are lots of windows, so the light will be pouring in and the walls are so much lighter.
Since he was already here, we had him do the downstairs guest bath too. Costco rugs and towels, and it is finished!! My husband, who always 'likes things just like they are'... may love it even more than I do. He fights change, but when it's done, he is always the biggest fan!
The painter and several of his helpers came and tore down the wallpaper in the small bath downstairs. It took them about 45 minutes!! Things just come together when you know what you're doing!
It was hard to get a good picture, since all the light was in front of me, but it is very light and airy now.
I still think of our house as our 'new house', and it's over 20 years old! Now we are replacing things... BIG things... COSTLY things, just because the years take their toll. So my plan was to do this on a small budget, I did... kind of.
Now for the bedroom...
