if you're keeping up, you'll know that lots has been going on in the scrappy house so far this year
and in the wake of that, rooms were vacated and renovated
some rooms got new residents and just about all the rooms got a new lick of paint!
so without further ado
the before and after shots
please note extensive use of 2011 christmas present: wide angle lens :)
guest room - now miss 14's room
then after a lick of paint
and how it USUALLY looks!!!
miss 20's old room
miss 15's new room
no paint, just a new resident
miss 15's old room downstairs
if only you could see the state of the walls before
NIGHTMARE!!! bluetac, holes, chips - you name it, it was there
miss 14's old room downstairs
note the middle photo is BEFORE the new paint job
- it's amazing what a clean out will do for the look of a room!
a flashback to 2000 when i let a 9 year old [now miss 20) and 11 year old (now miss 22)
choose their own paint and carpet colours
and after 3 coats of spanish white!
rumpus room BEFORE
downstairs looking up
we went from half pearl-lustre (with accompanying grubby black fingerprints!)
to spanish white with a feature wall in ginko - a gorgeous lime green
door frames in double doeskin - a lovely warm brown
the BEFORE photos REALLY don't show just how shabby the walls were!
and the hall upstairs
and the AFTER after shot
the canvas was a birthday present from mr scrappy
and then we got the OUTSIDE of the house re-stained!
and THEN we got OUR room painted!
i have yet to get matching curtains and a new duvet cover, but you get the idea
NOT BAD HUH???
all that's left now is the kitchen and living areas which will be a MAJOR UNDERTAKING!
then it'll be time to re-seal the drive
and by then the youngest two girls will have left home and it'll be time to sell the house!!
