This week Graham and I have been taking part in some major projection...the act of doing projects, that is. We have resolved never to paint another room again. I don't think we are particularly talented at it; as it took us four (yes, four) coats to get the wall to stop looking streaky. Our dining room is now exactly how we want it; which feels so good. It went from red-horrible-floral-wallpaper-border to red-on-our-terms. Here are some pictures of the process.
I was in charge of peeling off all of the old border
and Graham was in charge of sanding
The end! TA-DA!
Then we got these candle holders at Target to put on the blank wall...we like the candles the best...does anyone want to stick up for the flowers?
