I'm in the mood.....

to re-do!

It's been quite awhile since I've done any painting and/or re-decorating downstairs. We did the den in February 07.......painted, new furniture, new TV.

and nothing since then. But now I'm ready and would like to get the foyer and dining room done before I decorate for Christmas. Would like to include the living room but that's not going to happen.

I stripped the wallpaper from the foyer over the weekend. That stuff has been up for maybe 14 years! If you look down a few post, you'll see wallpaper from the chair rail down. It had little flowers on it......this is from my "floral" decade.

So now I'm going to paint it a pale yellow, flat Whipped Apricot. Then the trim at the ceiling, chair rail and baseboard I'm going to do in a high gloss white. I think it's going to look good. We went over to Lowes last night and bought the paint......tonight, we're ordering pizza and I may start painting.
