And so it went.
Before: Notice our lovely outdated light fixture and nasty wallpaper. Over the course of our little home's 70 year history someone must have smoked in the house because all I could smell was stale smoke as I took down the paper. Nasty!
|The wallpaper. And yes, I kept a piece for scrap booking purposes.|
During: It took me a few days to get all the paper and glue off the walls...it was not an easy task. Last Friday we had a friend come and replace the old light with a newer, spiffier light, and I did some priming of the walls on Saturday night. On Sunday I did the paint and trim...the paint was looking a little pink to me, but since then has either grown on me or darkened a bit.
|Primer is done!|
|Our new light.|
After: It looks so much better! I'm so happy that I finally took this wallpaper down! I still want to hang some pictures in the hallway but I will get to that soon. I'm just happy that it's done!
