It's been over a month since Liliana came home from the hospital and we are all settling in and enjoying life at home. I plunged in and started to get some more repainting and home improvements done. We moved in almost 4 years ago and our remodeling plans came to a grinding halt. The house we bought was my grandmother's and in desperate need of paint and flooring. The flooring is actually coming up or broken in several spots and the carpeting is so bad that the padding is disintegrated underneath so this is not just a question of personal taste.
I finally finished painting our our dining room this weekend and I think it came out looking pretty good. Spending so much time in the house, the state of disrepair and old faded walls was driving us both crazy. Click on the image for a set of before and after photos.
