Fix it and Forget it..Finally

This is the before shot. What a mess...ugly brown walls, stuff everywhere...plaster patches and what you can not see is all the paint swatch splotches everywhere....Believe it or not there is a counter under all that junk
And here is the after. Shiny clean and a new shade of pale sage on the walls. Now i just have to make some curtains. I have been holding on to fabric for it for a few years now. I know i am moving soon but it is good to have it done and looking nice for when we are trying to sell.

I am pretty pleased with it. At first the color was a surprise...Chris picked it out. I just put it up on the walls. 12 hours of painting fun later(i don't really mean that!) we had the end result.

Beautiful! A friend just came to clean my kitchen today, and it looks so nice. I just might hire her on a regular basis. Lol.
