My wonderful parents have come up for the week and are helping me paint my new house! Already the changes look fabulous! They are such great parents!
We'll start with a Value Village find. A beautiful milk glass lamp. I wish I had bought the other one too!
These are my WONDERFUL parents painting my fireplace. They actually just finished and it looks amazing! I love it! I'm going to stain the wood mantel a very rich colour too. (Sorry about all the orbs, the lens was dirty, either that or the house is very haunted!)
Kitchen in demo. Haha! I ripped off the ugly backsplash. We've already painted two coats of the "upper colour" in the kitchen.
Here's the top colour. "Pip" by Martha Stewart. I like the creaminess of it. Just you wait until you see the whole kitchen makeover!!!!
Paint and beadboard wallpaper = expensive. But worth it!
A chair I got at Value Village, is nice we severely lack chairs in this house.
I actually like the fabric on the chair, but I am also contemplating covering it with this lacy doily. What do you think?
My calendula seems to like its new home. It is finally blooming! (It is closed up for the night though)
This is our bedroom as it is now. eventually we are painting it a light cream with a light green trim.Another view of our bedroom. It doesn't look too bad, but it is too dark for my tastes.
And that's it! I'll post more pictures of the amazing transformations over the next few days.
