Painting the ceiling is really not very fun!
Blake is doing some patchwork.
The next step was to texture some walls that had been wallpapered.
Randy proved that he had some artistic blood in his veins!
Next came painting the walls. I chose Brown Teepee. I think it's very warm and inviting. After Randy painted all the brown, he replaced all the trim, the baseboards and the door casings which we painted white, or Powdered Snow.
Randy C. did all the rolling of the brown, Blake, Randy P. and I painted the trim.
Now for the Royal Treatment! Randy installed Crown Molding! It is just the perfect addition to this makeover! I LOVE it! It was difficult to install, and Randy C. told us later that he had never actually installed it before, he had only helped a couple of times. Once again, he proved that he is skilled beyond even his own beliefs. Magic at its very best!
Because Courtney is tall, she had to help hold up one end. (Wonder why they didn't pick me?)
The part over the stairs was really hard. You can't see it in this picture, but Randy C. is standing on a small platform on a ladder that is on the bottom stair. I think that everyone was really tired at the end of that day!
Randy installed some bead board in the entry way, and that finished up his magic tricks. We are going to have the window replaced in the living room, and it has not come in yet, so he will have to come back and trim that later.
Stairs - we added a hand rail.
Now it is time to call in another magician! Randy's wife Julie is a master decorator! She and I had a fun day shopping and found some great things! She has such good ideas and knows how to place things so they look stunning! She combined the new with some of my existing things for a complete magical transformation! I LOVE it! I have a few "before" pictures.
Now for the "after" pictures!
This is the wall in front of the stairs.
Once again, a HUGE thanks to Randy and Julie! I absolutely LOVE my "new" house! What a boost! You are both so talented, thank you so much for sharing your talents and time with us!
Julie, the magician!
Randy, the master picture hanger, they are straight and spaced very evenly!
These pictures really don't do justice! You need to see it in person! Come visit, you will be amazed! (There is still one more project that Blake and Randy have been spending many hours on, that will be finished at a later date!)
