Whimsy and Hugs!

Well, I cannot give you an update. As of last Monday we were starting to paint in the kitchen and the carpenter told me his goal by Friday, which would have been yesterday, was a completed room. However, they were trying to paint over wallpaper hung in 1975. It bubbled after they painted two walls, and Friday they steamed it all off, and I thankfully changed the color from "What the heck was I thinking blue" (aka Starry Night) to a shade called Rainy Afternoon by Behr. The steamer messed up the cardboard topping to quite a bit of wallboard, so... it is back to skim coats, mudding, and then more sanding next week. I guess this is more of a downdate. 

However, the thought of a home to decorate and enjoy is very close. The rest of the jobs will be easier. I will give you an update next weekend!!! Or sooner if things change much.

Oh, Gayla! What a mess, huh? I know you will be thrilled when all is said and done but that doesn't made the process any easier. Hope you have a good, unstressed Sunday- xo Diana

One step forward, two steps back; that has always been our theme! But seriously, the backtracking will be for the better. This is your forever kitchen and you want it done right. No bubbles! And lucky you got to switch your color. I love Rainy Afternoon (the name must signify the color right?). It will all be worth it in the end.
