Wow! What a CHANGE!

Okay we began the day Saturday with a hearty breakfast.
This huge sausage , egg and cheese biscuit!
Yum! Lots of coffee too!!

Here is the before of that horrid paneling before it goes away forever!!
Baby Boy sanded it and I came behind him wiping off the dust.
We also had to fill in lots of holes and do some caulking.
Baby Boy painted the ceiling first and did that make a difference!

Here is Baby Boy doing a second coat of the primer on those walls.
Also got all the trim primed as well.

Here is DH rolling on COLOR!!
I did all the cutting in ..I am half dead! Ha!!;-)
No really proud of my self that I was able to do as much as I have!
Now to see if we old ones can get out of bed Sunday AM!!!! ;-)
We will be replacing this ceiling fan also with a white one.

Walls all painted!!! Color is not as yellow green or dark as it looks.
A very pretty green.
We will be doing all the trim next after we pull up carpet Sunday.
Will take more pics after trim is all painted .
Maybe will have some sunshine to help camera take a true color pic.
I am so very HAPPY with how it is looking!!!!!!!


  1. amazing how a lick of paint can lift a whole room..that is looking great-hhm bet your going to be stiff and sore come morning,cheers Vickie

  2. It's looking great, but I know you're going to be so sore today! Can't wait to see it all finished and you back in it set to sew.

  3. Looking VERY good so far....lots of work but you'll be tickled with it in the end.

  4. Wow! It never ceases to amaze how a little paint and a lot of hard work can change a room so much. Looks like your going to enjoying working in your new sewing room!

  5. How exciting. You will be smiling for days. It really brightens up the room. Hope you aren't to sore and tired to enjoy your day. Just keep moving!

  6. I can't believe what a difference the paint makes! It is worth all the hard work.

  7. Enjoy your newly painted room!

    We did paint over paneling and it's a lot of work!


  8. Very nice! A can of paint makes such a huge difference. But it's a lot of work, isn't it? My daughter has decided she wants to paint her room... ahem... she wants ME to paint her room. My stipulation is that she has to have it completely cleaned and keep it completely clean for a few weeks before I'll even consider it. Ha! If you know the OnlyChild, she is just not capable of keeping a room clean. I have a feeling it will be a while before she gets new paint in there. hehe.

  9. Oh what a pretty and light room you will have when all is finished--hard work yes --worth it--most diffenently---once everything is back into the room and you really get back to sewing--will there be any house work or meals cooked--never????? Hugs your angel partner!!

  10. What atransformation Lola! It's just lovely. So fresh and clean. That breakfast is a real heart stopper but just the fuel you need for a day's hard work. Ann :)


Luv hear'in from ya!!
