GOODBYE wallpaper!

Goodbye wallpaper was said A LOT during the month of December! As soon as we moved in, we starting ripping it off...and ripping it off...and ripping it off! It was wall-to-wall in the kitchen, powder room and master bath. We got a little break in the master bath and Barrett's room where it was only border. BUT there was even border in our master closet! Who does that?!?! AND we still have Barrett's bathroom and the spare room to tackle. We kinda ran out of steam in the wallpaper removal department :) 

So, we've been here 3 months now (as of March 19th), and we are so close to done with all our remodel projects! Just a few more things to tackle!! I've been working on some Before & Afters. I am excited to get them all done and make a little "Before & After" photo book! 

So, here's the next installment of the new house transformation
{the breakfast nook}

Wallpaper and border gone! Sherwin Williams Baguette on the walls!

I've ordered prints for the frames, but they aren't in yet! AND the green blinds still need to be hidden. They are really nice Hunter Douglass blinds, but they are hunter green. SO, I'm planning to just add some faux roman shades or a cornice to hide them behind. Oh, how I love the natural light in this room!

Lovely floral balloon valance---GONE!

I also painted our old kitchen table black. My Mamo gave us this when we first got married, and we used it in the dining area at our old house. It used to look so big and cramped there! It was all white and the chairs were chipping. I love it black, but it was a LOT of work! Especially the chairs with all those spindles! Here are the pics of that....
