. . . everyone was so excited 
for me to open the last gift 
on christmas day . . .
. . . it was a bag of crunchy cheetos . . .
. . . my husband and children 
are such givers . . .

. . . but . . . 
. . . the real gift . . . 

{amelia's old room with seventeen-year-old mary engelbreit wallpaper.
and yes, that is a ME teapot pull on the fan switch. thanks for noticing!} 

. . . meant that cheto . . .
{that's him ↓}
. . . and his helper were coming 
for two days . . .

{of course he doesn't know i took his photo}

. . . to remove wallpaper . . .


. . . then texture . . .

{drew's old room with twenty-year-old phoenix suns wallpaper. jealous?} 

. . . and paint . . .


. . . in three rooms . . .

{where i hang out. a lot. wallpaper ca. 1995} 

. . . pretty sure this guy hates me . . .

{of course he doesn't know i took his photo, either}

. . . meet "helper" ↑ . . .

What a great Christmas present. I'm so glad you are taking some before and during pictures to compare with the final result.

I cannot believe you are taking down the floral in the laundry room! I also cannot wait to see what they will all look like post painting. I'm sure you don't need help choosing the colors you have great taste. :)

Can't wait to see the colors you pick, also what kind of paint do they use to paint countertops?

I forgot to ask how that painted counter top thing went? we've tried to replace ours with granite where we can afford in the kitchen and 2 baths, but we have 2 bathrooms with the old formica. Again, love the transformation. We built our home in 1994. So I'm with you all the way here.
