Okay, so remember this post? About me texturing?
May I have a drum roll, please???
It’s done!!!! Accomplished. Achieved. Closed. Completed. Concluded. Finished. A wrap.
Wanna see pictures? I hope so…cause if you keep scrolling down, you’re going to see them. Cause I WANT you to see them!!!
I got impatient and pulled a piece of the paper off before I took pics. Me??? Impatient??? NO……
Most of the wallpaper is gone….but all those nail holes and joints!!!
Sometimes, it isn’t fun to see what’s underneath…
On this wall, there were four names in pencil: Ingaborg, Gerd, Jack, Two-pump
Evidence of the work done over 30 years ago by my grandmother and her sister and their two husbands. That was fun to find…and will never be seen again.
Just one coat of primer and it looked better already!
Felt like I was icing a strawberry cake when I opened the new bucket of mud and saw this!
After the mud, another coat of primer and then finally….the paint.
And then the new curtain and all the hardware was finally hung…and it’s done!
Ready to see the ‘after’ shots?
Are you sure?
I love the rug that Grandma and I found at TJ MAXX. So perfect!
I tried not to freak out when I found these old drawers out in Grandpa’s shop…they came from his mother’s sewing machine. After calmly saying, “These shouldn’t be out here.” he told me that if I could find something to put his junk in, I could have them. They are beautiful!
Probably one of the most rewarding projects I’ve ever done. Really.
And aside from having to break some of the fixtures off of the walls because they were hung so well all those years ago, it went surprisingly smoothly. I had a lot of fun with it….and now I’m looking around here thinking…”Hmmm…what next?”
Don’t tell Grandpa I said that! 😉
