what a difference a few days makes....


this WAS our bedroom.
ceiling a mess from last years winter from hell.........
these panels over the bed were falling on us!
walls a dark paneling- original on this house


see? ice dam damage.
YUCK!


and now behind the door.........beautiful
they just need to add the trim at the top
after painting it white


it is a gray color
not as light as it shows
but not dark either
(oops got the bathroom door open......LOL)



it is a hard color to photograph

any who..........
this picture has the floor similar to what we are getting
old weathered barnwood in gray tones

and I LOVED the fact that it is bright
and airy!
with just a POP of turquoise
so I ordered this bedding set LOL
shhhhhhhhhh
dont tell hubs
it is arriving next week.........

then it will be on to new shades, and curtains
and light plates

do you know that in mobile homes they have stupid lightswitch plates?
yes they do! You cant find them anywhere!
they are like a double plate but one side is blank
hubs wants to throw these out
I want to clean them up and paint them
so I hid them
it is NUTS.........
went to THREE stores, electrical one, Home Depot
and Lowes
NOBODY has them or can order them
WHAT?
I cant make the hole smaller so what the heck
are you supposed to do to change them?
ggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  2. I like the painting on the paneling. It used to be paint would not adhere to stuff like that but now the new paints are so much better. Love the soft gray.
