Master Bedroom Before and After

This master was huge!  It had two walk in closets! 
It was just a bit outdated! 
But paint can fix just about anything!  Right?
  So I took down the wall paper, the curtains and the flower wallpaper.
Painted over the taupe and eggplant colors!
Painted it a soft cream and a pretty gray blue.  Added some soft sheers that let the light in. 
And after I think we have a nicely updated Master Suite!

The kitchen  did not change a whole bunch.  There was only so much I could change in the amount of time that we were here.  I would have loved to take out the dropped ceiling and have painted the cabinets.
But there wasn't time. 
So really the only change I made was painting, taking down a shelf, taking down some curtains, putting up some curtains and putting up a coat rack.


I know the after is not huge, but from the pink paint
it is definetley an improvment.
You can't tell in the picture, but the new paint looks much better with the countertops.



This coat rack was over the stairs and as you walked down the stairs, unless you were 7 ft. tall you couldn't use the rest of it.  And as we are 5 ft 6 in and under, we could only use the first 3 ft. of it.  So, to make it more useful I took it down and moved it to a more useful spot.  I had to paint it and spray paint the hooks.

I like it much better here!

Living Room makeover

I know I promised I'd show you the Living Room yesterday.  Sorry!  I got a little side tracked!  I am trying to get ready for an Open House here on Saturday.  Here are some of the pictures of the befores and afters.  I thought I got one of the curtains on the windows, but I guess I didn't.  Just imagine white lace valances.  I am sure they were in style at one point, but just not anymore!

After Paint and Decorations

Since I skipped a night I will do the Dining Room too.


Professionally painted vines. 
 Once again, I am sure they were nice at on point. 
But not anymore!

 Here are the lace curtains I was talking about.


I sanded over the vines so they wouldn't show through the paint. 
Painted the top part of the walls two shades darker than the Living Room.
Replaced the curtains with paint drop clothes.
I was happy with the turn out!
