I just bought my first house in June, 2008. When I first walked in to the house I knew it was perfect...or would be, after a little elbow grease. After several months of paint in my hair (literally, people at work would know what room I had worked on the day before by the color in my hair), calluses on my hands, and the awesome side effect of losing 20 lbs (squee!) I finally finished. Well, with the inside. The garden is my next big task.
There are waaayyy too many pictures to put in here, so I'm going to link to my flickr set below. But just to give you a taste of what I was working with...here are some before and afters of what was the orange, wallpapered kitchen:
No, my friends. Your eyes aren't lying to you....the ceiling was also painted orange. Snazzy!
I'm incredibly proud of how well my house came out. I'm also in love with the fact that I have a dedicated craft room - probably my favorite room in the house. Please let me know what you think...Thanks!
Hope you like the pictures!
