An Unhaunted Halloween

Do you have that house in your neighborhood that looks uninhabited and haunted? Maybe the paint is peeling, the landscape is overgrown, and just it just looks downright creepy? That house that the neighborhood kids make up spooky stories about?
Well, our house could have been that house when we bought it.
Little by little Chris and I are doing our best to make it look less haunted. What better way than to clean up all the trim in our family room?

Chris added quarter round toe molding to close up the small gap between the floor and the baseboards. It is a small detail that makes a big difference.

Then we got to work and painted every square inch of trim in the room. Here are some before and afters.



 What a difference a little white paint makes!

Now that the trim is painted, Chris and I can finally put the tools down. Our work here is done!

 All that is left to do is patiently wait for the backordered wallpaper to be delivered and hung.
And I suppose Chris has some side tables to build...
And there are still pillows and accessories to purchase...
And I guess we'll need lighting...
And artwork...
And drapes...
Hmmmm, I guess there's still quite a bit left to do in here.

In the meantime, we're planning to move all the furniture in and start enjoying the room.

Happy Halloween everyone!
