Transformation Tuesday

I promised some pictures of the progress we are making on the second floor of our house, but then we found out that our realtor was going to be showing it to some prospective buyers on Saturday. In the mad rush to get our house organized and the inch of debris on the upstairs floor, we got a wee bit busy. In fact, I think between Thursday and Friday we must have spent about 20 hours working on it.

But here are the fruits of our labor!

This is the before photo of the ugly green wallpaper room. Thankfully I was able to pull it off pretty easily, and so this became my fastest transformation to date.

Updating the green wallpaper room.

After peeling off all the wallpaper, prepping the walls with join compound, sanding them down, and painting them grey, this was the outcome. I also spent a fair bit of time on my hands and knees cleaning up old paint drops and spills. Look at that floor shine!

A beautiful grey bedroom.

We didn't get a before picture of what we call the "upstairs living room," but it had the same awful textured walls as the first bedroom I redid.

After lots of scraping, peeling, mudding and sanding—and by that I mean a LOT of scraping, peeling, mudding, sanding—we were finally able to paint it this great color called Surfer. In the picture it looks more blue than it actually is, but I love it! I love it so much it almost made me reconsider selling the house. Then I reminded myself that I can paint a room this color in our next house :-)

Updated upstairs living room in Surfer Blue.

We're still working on the second floor bathroom, and there's a kitchen and dinning room to do as well, but with the interested buyers we have looking at our house right now we may not ever get the chance to get it done.

Happy Transformation Tuesday!

Keep pinchin' :-)
