Oh my gosh, remember a month or so ago we were debating whether to sell our house in the country and buy a smaller home in town? Well, we decided that wouldn't be the thing for us to do at the moment as we love our big ole house in the country. That being said I decided I was going to start decorating the rooms upstairs that I haven't touched since we moved in. It was so much fun when we bought the house eight years ago and the kids and the grandchildren came for their first visit. Our son and daughter decided on which rooms they would call theirs, not that our son had much choice as our daughter seems to be the boss of the two, he is oldest, but he must follow along with her rules..lol...and not that either of them live with us, but we thought it would be fun for everyone to have their own rooms when they decided to stay over for Christmas Eve and any other time they wanted to. Our granddaughter and grandson also got to pick their own rooms too, of course the pink one was for Alexandra, not much of a choice there and the one in blue was all for Dylan. Actually, Dylan really, really wanted Uncle Tommy's room because it had a secret doorway to the attic but I ended that in a hurry. MEan GRANNY!!!! Anyways I haven't done a thing with any of the bedrooms upstairs except ours and now that we have decided to stay here it is time to move along.
Today I decided to start ripping the blue room apart. OOPS!!!! Wait until hubby gets home, he isn't going to be happy!!! LOL...Well come to think of it, I am not all that happy!!!! I am telling you, the lady that owned this house before us loved wallpaper, wallpaper everything. I have gotten rid of all the wallpaper downstairs, but I am in a mess on my first room upstairs. The four bedrooms, other than ours is what we call the really, really old part of the house. This lady has beige paint, then a coat of blue paint, I have found green paint on the start of the next wall, a layer of wallpaper, a different layer of wallpaper and oh yes, we mustn't forget about the two different border layers..I am sure you can tell that I am real happy here. I have got one small, very small wall done, only took me 3 hours, yep I am happy. You have to believe me here the layers of paint and wallpaper are not the worst things I found on this wall, here check it out for yourself
I cannot believe that someone would actually fix a wall, but not fix a wall...are we in that big of a hurry people. I am in a huge mess and just wait until THOMAS gets home. He has found so many goofy things that the previous owners have done to this house and for the most part flips when he finds something and I just keep telling him that they couldn't help it, they just aren't that bright so RELAX!!!! Wonder what he is going to be thinking when he sees this beauty?
I did end up having a great day when the messy part of it was over. I joined the Tussie Mussie swap over at A Swap for All Seasons and my package arrived in the mail today! I am over the moon with this beauty, wait until you see what my partner made and sent me. Here is just a sneak peek and I will blog about it tomorrw.
