The Painting is Finished

Just wanted to post a quick update.  First of all, I now see that my "Followers Gadget" is missing and that this is another problem in Blogger.  Hopefully this will get fixed soon.

I finished all of my painting today!!!  After 4 1/2 months of scraping wallpaper, washing down the walls, patching all of the holes and cracks in the plaster, sanding the repaired plaster, priming the walls, painting two basecoats, painting faux finish one and two, and then I had to faux finish the ceilings, it is finally done.  The result is a beautiful livingroom and entryway just the way I imagined it.  I will post pictures after I have cleaned it and put up the drapes. 

It took a long time but I wanted to do it right so that it would look like wallpaper and it does.  The rest of the week will be spent cleaning, doing yard work and cooking.  My son's graduation party is Friday evening so I have a lot to do.  I've checked in on many of your blogs and have enjoyed the many varied posts.  I will be back to my regular posting come this weekend.

In the meantime, have a blessed week.
