The Dining Room, it's like buttah

One upon a time there was a dining room with lots and lots and gobs and hideous gobs of wallpaper.

Then I bought that house and ripped off that wallpaper. Which was a good thing because.....
Behind one of the walls were millions and trillions of termites feasting and gorging and having themselves a Par-TAY! But...

It took me nine months to fix that stinking, stupid, dumb, flippin' WALL!

Oh, but it's done now. And it is so lovely. I think I could be a Master Plasterererer. Only folks might be a bit disappointed in my uh, slowness to complete a job.

Awwww, it is done.
Now, which room should I tear into next? How about the bathroom upstairs?
It has wallpaper. So, if I start now, I should be blogging about getting it done about this time next year.

You really did a great job on that wall. I'm so impressed. I would have been curled up in the corner crying and eating chocolate.

Beautiful! I love the color you chose, too. Just enough yellow. Isn't yellow a delicious color? Yes, just like buttah!

It looks so pretty. I love the color. Much better than that old wall paper and oh yeah the termites too.

I came over from your sister's blog since the idea of having guests and going on vacation are simply too much for the dear girl, bless her heart.

My advice, you DO NOT want to tear into an old bathroom. Just trust me. Let somebody else do it. Go eat a beet salad.
