About 6-7 months ago (after living in our old, rundown home from over a year), Pepe decided to remodel our hallway. He torn down this dark wood wall paneling (yuck!) and we found layers of paint. The last one was a cool orange color. Unfortunately, it was all beat up and Pepe decided to start painting white over it. Just as he was in the middle of it, I had a hunch that I might be pregnant (heightened sense of smell...you know) and I asked him to stop. So, for the past 6 months we've had this torn apart, multi-colored hallway.
Then this past weekend, Pepe decided to finish the hallway. It looks amazing...we still need to paint a little more (we used "No VOC" paint - love it), but I'm so happy we (Pepe) did it.
Details (if you are interested):
VOC free paint on the walls
New light fixture
New light switch cover
Total cost: around $100...not too shabby...
ps...tomorrow I have another "before and after" that was inexpensive and even faster.
