I've been watching Kim over at Twice Remembered Cottage redo their house and that gave me the itch to do something to ours. We moved in to our house over ten years ago and made no changes. Lack of funds, as usual. Over spring break, with tons of mom's help and instruction, we painted the hallway and master bathroom. My daughter Ashley and I then ventured into the dining room and stripped two layers of wallpaper (ughhhh!!!) and painted the walls battleship blue and added wainscoting and a chair rail. I love the way it turned out. We then went thrift store shopping and found window toppers and a few vintage decorations and BAM! it pulled together. What do you think?
