Home maintenance is exhausting; I thought it might be easier if I hired painters, but I'm still whupped.
Note to self: buy lightweight furniture next time, especially if you have to move it all over the place.
The major job of painting took much longer than expected because I live in a non-conventional house. It used to be a barn and it was turned into a home in stages. Then it sat for years, till we bit the hook and jumped in and tried to update it a little. That was in 2001, and each year has had another project. It was time for something aesthetic.
So, for Janie Junebug, here are the before and after pictures (I wish I knew I was going to do before and after; I tried to get similar angles). Keep in mind, my yard is big - my house, not so much.
Living Room Before (my dog looks possessed, and yes - she is wearing a shirt):
Living Room After!
The living room "after" looks like I've abandoned reading (the books have not been returned to the book shelf). There's still a lot more to do and I best get at it.
Looking forward to the weekend! Gotta catch up on by blog reading and book reviews.
