Amazing What You Can Do in Less Than 24 Hours!

This is where it all started yesterday morning (Saturday!) I took out some paper and began planning, sketching, and making lists. So much to do! Decided we should start with the dining room walls! As you can see in my earlier post, they were U-G-L-Y, with a capital UG.












Pulled off the cedar. Found decent finished sheetrock underneath! It looked as though the cedar was original to the house! Oooo...so glad it's gone!
Now, Hubby and I have put up beautiful beaded board paneling. It's so crisp and clean! We had to do a lot of measuring, shimmying, applying "Liquid Nails" (there's no goin' back after you've slathered that crap on the walls!), and nailing! We didn't even get made at each other!Tomorrow, I'll buy the paint we've chosen. Hubby will put up the new mouldings. I already know which artwork will be moved onto the new walls...and am planning a tremendous August garage sale! I have some COOL stuff to sell, and I'll miss some of it, but I have too much stuff!






I'm so lucky to have such a knowledgeable and handy husband! When I draw pictures and make lists, he likes it and is able to transcribe my ideas into reality!

However, the Beavs are on right now, working toward defeating UNC! All home improvement must end for the day...
alas...
I've chosen "Blue Hills" as the color! Woo-hoo!

I love the colour blue, so tranquil and calming. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I have been really busy with redecorating and renovating our house but will update my blog again soon.
