House Planning | Preparing for Renovations
Lately I’ve been desperately trying to avoid the Veruca Salt complex. You know, that pesky little attitude that makes you say, “I want wallpaper, daddy! I want it now, daddy!” First of all, my daddy heaves a mighty sigh when I even mention wallpaper. Our family has had quite the history of wallpaper removal. So, why would I want to bring that upon myself? (Look at the wallpaper below and you will find out why!) Ah yes. ‘Twould be so lovely. And why stop at the kitchen? Let’s paper the dining room too! And the living room!
Okay, I’ve got issues. And very little money to work them out with wallpaper purchases. Which might be for the better, eh? In any case, I’ve decided against wallpaper anywhere but the small wall space in our kitchen. Instead, we will do a nice warm grey in the living room and dining room, which is open to the kitchen.
And since we’re moving this weekend (ALREADY?!), I’ve been prepping our plans and gearing up to bark out orders gently ask favors of those who have kindly offered to help. So, I guess I will update again once we’ve moved a bunch of boxes and broken out the chain saws and crowbars. Yikes! I thought I said no renovations this time? Ah, I guess we all knew that wouldn’t be the last word.
