Prettied up Paneling

BEFORE- knotty pine is just not working for me.  the room was dated, boring and feeling closed in.
the only good thing it had going on was the plush pale gray carpet. :)

AFTER-  first coat of white paint is now on. i did use kilz 2 primer before the painting began. 
i do love the white sooo much better. :) 

on a side note- painting is nearly complete on the interior. bathroom redo is next project. i so want to get moved in!!!

The Key

The key to designing a happy home, is really designing a happy life. The key to that is lay not so much in deciding what I needed, but recognizing what I could do without. - Jay Schaffer

there are so many things i have on my "to do" list:
paint(interior first)
change out the black wrought iron posts and railings
remove carpet from front porch
do something with the tiny galley kitchen
remove wallpaper
take up the carpet from the original hardwood floors
