Home Improvement

Our painter, John Barry was here from January through Easter (!). Mike and I removed a lot of the wallpaper, it wasn't so bad in the older part of the house on plaster walls, but I couldn't make a dent in the paper on the addition's drywall. Think confetti. John has better technique/more patience than me, and got it all off. He painted almost the entire house, including the hall bath THREE times before we settled on off-white. Whatever.

We did a little wallpaper in the dining room and the upstairs hallway and a couple of other small areas. A nice antique hunt-scene toile, very pretty. And I packed all the radiator covers up to the attic and John painted all the radiators barn-red (to match one in the kitchen). The pic on the left is from the previous owners and the one on the right is new.
