Office Before and After

This is how it looked when we bought the place in 2004.



I had put the job off far too long
You can see the new windows we put in last fall :)



I had planned to paint over the wallpaper but there were too many problems to fix.

Once the paper was down other problems were revealed and had to be fixed.

A coat of primer and base coat of paint and it looked lots better.

This painting technique hides all kinds of problems.

I got the valances made today.

I still need to paint the doors but that will have to wait a couple of weeks.

Mostly I'm pleased with the way it came out. I forgot that I should have cut in the edges before painting the walls and I'm unhappy with the way I cut it in afterward. I stills looks way better than it did before.
