The story of a room

This is what is now Connor's room, when the previous owners of our house lived there. Notice the fugly wallpaper.

We then bought the house and Connor and I pulled off much of the wallpaper very easily. We had no idea what was in store. just some backing to scrape off, right?

More wallpaper Connor pulled off lol

Well... this is what happened. That wasn't the only layer of wallpaper, and the layers underneath were... troublesome to say the least. Matthew did a great job with the majority of the scraping while I painted the other rooms.

One wall almost done.

The second wall almost done too. It had some very interesting doodles on the original wall.

Like this frog. lol

So so close.....

And now. Repainted blue with white trim. It is amazing, to me, that it is even the same room.

I will never put up wallpaper.

Big hugs for the blue fish while napping. Napping is best for snuggles.

The line

Obviously in this picture we are not done, the trim all still has tape around it. This is downstairs. The yellow is the playroom. The green is the office. The line is where they meet.

I did that line. And I am strangely proud of it. I used a level and everything. lol

Afters, Master Bedroom

There's still plastic on the floor but you get the general idea. Corner where the accent wall meets the rest of the room.

The window and entry to the bathroom

From the inside of the room looking at the entryway.
