For those of you that have read my blog for awhile…know that we put in a new kitchen a few years ago and now we are ready to do some remodeling in our living room/dining room area. The carpet has been taken up in the dining room and will soon be coming out of the living room. I didn’t plan to be away from my blog for so long, but I’ve been busy taking some wallpaper border down…that has been up in our living room and dining room since around 1993.
Here is a peek at what the border looked like…
I really did love it for many years…and it looked great with my cottage style of decorating, but I’m ready for a change. I’m really loving the farmhouse decorating style and the simplicity of it.
So….back to the wallpaper border. It’s not a pretty site to take down the wallpaper border and find a scary paint color under it!!
I had forgotten that there was peach colored walls under that border…which was the color of the walls when we moved in to our home all those years ago.
I have the border off of three walls…one wall in the living room and two in the dining room. I have six more walls to take the border off of. If you look closely at the left corner of the photo below…you will see that the top layer of the border is off, but the under paper is still on there. This is the next wall that I’ll be working on…it is a very long wall that is in the dining room and the living room.
Did you see my huge letter D in the photo above? I took a break from working on the wallpaper and went to Hobby Lobby one day last week and got the letter D on sale for half price. I can’t wait to get it up on the wall.
Which unfortunately…will be after I get more of the wallpaper border off of the wall in the area where I want to hang the letter.
Going to take another break from the wallpaper border this Saturday. My sister and I are going to a Street Fair that is only 15 minutes from where I live. I’ll try to take some pictures to share with all of you.
Until next time….. blessings from me to you, ~Cindy
