The light at the end of the tunnel…

I started painting all the main rooms in my house over a month ago. Now that it’s close to Christmas I had to get myself in gear and get it finished!

Today I spent the last 4 hours scraping wallpaper off the walls. I swear someone superglued that stuff on!

After that was done I finally got around to putting two coats of my go-to paint color, Mindful Gray by Sherwin Williams.

The room looks completely different now! I haven’t gotten around to painting the trim yet but it’s on my to-do list before family comes over for Christmas dinner.


I even decided to put up another Christmas tree I had put in storage!



Mom and I went foraging yesterday to collect a bunch of cedar, juniper and holly. We used it to make some mini wreaths for her dining room. I used the leftover to make fresh wreaths for three of my exterior windows.
