Entryway finished!

Back when the Sullivans visited, they fixed up our kitchen and started on our entryway.  Will has finally had a chance to finish up what they started!

This first photo is before and after from right inside our door.  Remember that dark, foam wallpaper?  That came down right away, but then the walls were just rough.  Also, one of the first changes was taking down the closet doors and moving the refrigerator into that space.  After that the Sullivans helped to scrape and paint the trim and ceiling, and they bought wallpaper.  Will has been slowly wallpapering ever since then.  First one corner, just enough to add the washing machine.  Then a little more to hang the coat rack.  Now he's done!


This is looking back toward the door from the living room.  Isn't it beautiful now?  You can just see the edges of the washing machine and fridge on the right-hand side of the after picture.


If you want to go back through the whole before album, it's here.  And this is after.

I still have more big news to write about, but nap time is over.  Two posts in one day is pretty good, isn't it?  Bye!

I've been away from your website for a few weeks and I pick today with the teaser to come back. That is a great way to keep me from missing another day. It looks like you've replaced my nephew and nieces with much older children, but thankfully just as beautiful! Thank you for giving us this way to share in your joy!
