I went to my mother's for a few days, and on Friday we took six hours to rip down the '70s style wood paneling in the family room. Here it is before:
After we got the first panel down, we found some drywall in pretty good shape behind it. We thought, great, we will do a bit of spackling and paint the wall no problem. That was optimistic, at the end of the six hours we thought, we'll hire someone to do a lot of spackling and paint the wall, no problem. Here is is after:
The room looks so much bigger and full of light now! I can't wait to see it with a fresh coat of paint.
Since returning home, I have been working on some egg dying for Easter.
