Dinning Room Re-Do

I finally decided to taken my own advice and follow thru with my plans to redo our dinning room/ kitchen. About 10 years ago we remodeled this part of the house, it was a very big job. I loved the addition, but hated the paint and wallpaper we put up. Every year I kept saying I wanted to change it, but never did anything with it. Well this year I finally did something.

Stripping the wallpaper. It was a very big job. I had to strip off the top final layer, then use this chemical and take the paper back and glue off. It took me about 2 days to do the whole thing.

What the walls looked like after I was done. (yes I voluntarily did that to the walls. Maybe that is why I put up the wall paper)

One section of the ceiling is vaulted. This is my view from the ladder, painting up there.

And now the finished results. I can’t believe the difference. I love it!!! Need to add a few things like curtains. Will be looking for material for those this winter. ( this is the view from the kitchen.)

We got the hutch from Tim’s aunt and uncle. I love the old barn wood.

My newly painted beams, this is where I was standing on the ladder to take the “sky” shot. High isn’t it.

Well one thing off my “Just Do It” list. Sure does feel good!!!!
