Remodel

As you know we had some water damage in our great room that we are getting fixed. It is amazing how that always turns into doing the next room and the next and so one!! It took us about 1 1/2 weeks to get all the wallpaper off the dining room and the hallway. A few of the kids had a lot of fun taking the wallpaper off.





(above) Nate starting to paint. (above) This is the red that we chose.
(below) This is the finished wall!! I love it!! It turned out so good!! We chose a coffee color for the hallway and the rest of the dining room.
This turned out really well too. These rooms looks so different and so
much better!
.It did not show up so good so I guess you will all just have to come visit and see the real thing!!

Brenda, I'll consider that an invite! When should I book our flight! Hehe!

We've been stripping wallpaper from my livingroom, stairway and upstairs hall for a 1 1/2 years now...really, I'm not kidding. We did get one coat of paint on the livingroom walls, we also refinished the wood floors... now for the steps and the upstairs...we are just so slow!

But the paint looks great, I'm showing Brad :-) Terry

Hey, it looks good, in fact that red looks similar to the paint I have sitting in a can ready for my kitchen, so when is your crew coming up to help me get the paint on the walls??? Come anytime, should only take an hour for you to get here!
