New house pics

Things are coming along. The living room, dining room and first floor bathroom are just about finished.

The old first floor bathroom had hideous mauve wallpaper. Together with the blue and pink tile, it was a disaster. I stripped off the wallpaper and removed the glue, revealing an even more-hideous pink plaster base. Two coats of oil-based primer and a coat of white semigloss later, it was looking much more clean in there. I also painted the wooden vanity white.

Much better!

The dining room didn’t need much more than a coat of new paint. I did manage to bust an outlet while prying off the cover plate. Note the cool salmon color the room apparently was at one point. Here’s before and after:

There is so much more we want to do, but this is a start. I’ll post projects as they get done.
