Living where I do, it is not hard to find beauty in the " here and now.
The day started out rather gloomy and gray. It had rained about an inch overnight. Our living room has six large windows, and although the nearest trees are about 45 feet from them, sometimes it feels like I live in a wonderful tree house.
Most of the maples have lost their leaves by now. Note the one out the window to by the lamp. But the one out the left three windows is still hanging in there. The sun came out for awhile this afternoon and it was just beautiful!
The wallpaper in the front hall was just "dated!" I never did like it very much. The chandelier is probably dated too, but we will hold off n replacing it until we are ready to list.
There is still work to be done on the walls before I can paint them. There are some nail holes, a dent where the door nob hit, and some scratches and gouges from the scraper. I think it should be textured before painting as well.
After I cleaned up the mess from removing the wallpaper I emptied the closets. I've been sorting some of the things from them over the year, but there is still some to go thru. I admit I put some of the things into other closets, but most when up to the dining room. I figure since they don't belong there I will be more motivated to look thru them than if they are hidden away.
I'm going to have Craig take the doors off before I start painting so I don't mess them up. They are pretty clean, unlike some of the others around the house.
Tomorrow I am going down to Home Depot to buy some KILZ.
One more job underway.
