Our first project when we moved in was to get rid of all of the nasty carpet and funky wallpaper. The wallpaper proved much more difficult that we thought. It was 4 layers deep in some areas; even the light switch covers were wallpapered! Yikes! But we finally got it all peeled off (and by we, I mean hubby) and got a fresh coat of paint on the walls. I decided to go with Tobacco Road, as I fell in love with it the first time I saw it on the Nesting Place. We the replaced all of the carpet with new carpet, added new baseboards, and put down new flooring in the dining room.
It's still a work in progress, but it's slowly turning into the house I have pictured in my mind. I want to get new tile in the entryway, and then I'll post the before and after pictures of the living room. For now, here is the dining room:
This was with the seller's items. Notice the yucky carpet and the awful wallpaper.
We painted the walls Tobacco Road (though it shows more yellow in the picture than it actually is), replaced the flooring, and added new trim, curtains, and a light fixture.
So there it is! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, especially the flooring that hubby put down himself. Living room and playroom pictures coming soon!
