We recently replaced sliding glass patio doors with these lovely French Doors with double pane glass and the sliding mini-blinds between the panes. I absolutely am so pleased with my new doors. They are everything I hoped they would be. With the new doors came the need to repaint the wall they were on.
Here you can see the original white wall of the living room, with white in the dining area with the blue bead board.Mickey hard at work painting with the light tan color we selected.
Here I am painting the tan in the dining area. One of the hard parts of this project was having to empty the 2 bakers racks on either side of the hutch, and all the china from the hutch and buffet.
Here is the finished living room wall and the painted white new French doors.
Here is the finished dining area with the light tan on the wall and the darker brown tone on the bead board. We really like the way it looks and turned out.
Then, on the spur of the moment, I decided I wanted to take down the wallpaper from the kitchen area and replace it. Oh my, what a mess!!!!!
The back kitchen wall with the matching boarder that still needs to come down. So we are still a work in progress and have been living with a torn up kitchen all week!!!!! Mickey and I have done a lot of painting projects over the years but this project seems to just go on and on!!!!
Part of the reason being I hadn't planned ahead of time to strip the wall paper and do the kitchen area. That meant I spent about 3 days shopping for wall paper. Came home with 4 different choices, immediately ruled out 2 and was debating between those 2. Went out again and found another I liked better so returned the first 4!!!!!
Hopefully I can show you the finished project by next week!!! Needless to say we've been doing a lot of eating out and not very fancy fixed meals when I have prepared them at home. But we are loving the finished project and it will be worth it.
I am so far behind in my blog reading between our busy Easter Week and this painting project but am trying to get around to everyone. Please be patient with me. I miss reading your blogs and hate getting behind because it's so very hard to play catch-up!!!
