Oh well. The point is, our guest room got a fresh coat of paint on walls and ceiling before all of our holiday visitors arrived, has new baseboards, and is looking more put together than ever! Progress!
The original color wasn't the absolute worst, but it had holes and crumbling plaster all over the place and the window sills and ceiling were real bad, so we decided to do some repair work and freshen it up with a lighter color. The room feels so much bigger and airier now!
Such an inviting place to work on sewing projects! Oh and for guests...
