At Long Last.

Let the bells ring and the banners fly!  The wallpaper is gone from the living room never to be seen again.


The book shelves have been moved and the paper is gone.


All the clutter is, well, still there.


Although this alcove is clutter free.  Note:  If there is a nail/screw on the wall Mr LC will hang something/anything on it.



My dining room now looks like an episode of Hoarders.

Thanks everyone for your paint suggestions.  I'm afraid of colour so this will be a daunting task for me.

Don't be afraid of colour, Debbish.

Make colour be afraid of you.

Be afraid...be very afraid...the wrong color can be a disaster...it's a lot of work..May I suggest a nice shade of white!

Your room is beautiful....very elegant.

Despite your room being in some disorder, it still looks very elegant! I'm afraid of colour too, so you're not alone. xx

You have such lovely things! Can't wait to see what colour you take the plunge and dive into.

I really love the color it is. What if you used something similar and dumped the curtains for something the color of the trim?

So long as you are not like me and have to paint it 3 times..

Picking paint is hard for me, too, Deb! Good luck!

Looks fabulous! Cannot wait to see what you do. :-)

No! Don't be afraid of color! Do you want me to come to Canada to pick a color for you? Yes?
You know my living room/kitchen is pale yellow/bright yellow/pale blue/ bright blue with touches of green, right? Do you still want me to come?

I'm thinking regal. Something regal your Highness.

Sue said...

Ahhh! It must feel grest to get that job done. The painting should be easy compaired to stripping that *evil* paper :-)

I'm so looking forward to the next step.

We've been renovating for 6 years now and went through a time when the WHOLE HOUSE looked like hoarders. It gets better again...eventually.

Leslie said...

Fun!!! I look forward to seeing the completed version. Have a great new week.

Jen Kershner said...

Oy! Wallpaper removal is not fun at all! It looks great though and I know you are glad you went through the trouble.

Our house is closing in on 100 years old. I've never been one to want a brand new house--I love the fact that mu house has personality and history. We'll be putting it up for sale in the not-so-distant future as part of our quest to scale back and slow down. The next one will be smaller--a teeny cottage would work just fine--and while we've yet to meet, I do know one thing about it--it'll be old and filled with character and history.

Don't be afraid of color! It's a wonderful thing - adds so much more life to a room - and I say this even as a neutrals girl!

Blighty said...

That is a really lovely room. I like that green, very calm and pretty. I always end up with magnolia, me. My neighbour has bright orange on her kitchen walls. in her bedroom she has clouds and cherubs on the ceiling..just saying..

Patricia said...

Hi Deb, I found your lovely blog via the hilarious Blighty. Good luck with the painting of that beautiful room. I love the arched alcove - gorgeous! xx P
