Before and after... Part 1

Here it comes ...
Pictures from our "whitified"

Before picture from the TV corner...

(Hah...didn't see Molly sitting in the picture first...
But there she is...holding a purple
Don't look at the need in cleaning up before the painting!!

After the painting...
Biggest difference is how much higher the room felt when we painted the beams white...and of course the light...;0)
But this corner was the lightest even before...

Here is a picture from the other end of the room...
The dining area...
And after...:0)
The green walls were so much darker than I thought...
I just love all the light!!!
And we did buy a new dining table and chairs...:0)
It was IT!!!
Painted some furniture...this one had pine top before
and was antique white...looked dirty...but not anymore!!
In our little kitchen there was yellow wallpapers...
never liked them so now the walls became white...
like it so much better...

Lots of better make a part 2...

See you...
