"I dream of painting and then I paint my dream." - Vincent van Gogh

Ahhhhhhhhh... I'm finally done. I just got done painting the very last piece of our bedroom. I took all week off with the intent of doing all the things around the house that I've been putting off. Monday my dad came over and we spent most of the day peeling the wallpaper and border off the walls in the master bedroom. That pretty much sucked, but it was nothing compared to the horror that was peeling the border down from the kitchen. Basically the people that lived here before me were big into wallpaper, and borders. None of which I liked so I've replaced all of it.

So all of Monday was spent preparing the room to be painted. Then yesterday all day was spent painting. Angie couldn't really help because she read that paint fumes probably aren't good for a pregnant woman to be around. She was incredibly helpful otherwise so it didn't make the painting part quite as bad. At the end of the day it was 99% done, all that remained to be done was some touch-up work on the edges. So as of 15 minutes ago it's all done and I'm very relieved. Just need to let it dry.

Before I moved in we painted the entire inside of the house except the master bedroom because we ran of time. I finally got around to fixing it. Here are some before pictures (I'll post after pictures as soon as it's dry):
