The library has changed quite a bit since this picture was taken. The ceiling has been replaced, the shelves have been taken down (to be replaced of course), the old stove has been removed for the new one, that door has been removed and been sheet rocked (leads into the Spa room), and the wall paper has all been removed (thanks to Big Red) . We are going to rev up that new stove and get the room toasty so we can mud the walls and prepare them for paint! This time next week we should have some color on the walls!
I think painting is the most rewarding DIY project because it makes something look so good with relative ease. What do you think?
