Here's what it looked like before, in all its peeling, stained, wallpapered glory:
After stripping off the wallpaper, the exposed plaster walls gave the room a kind of abandoned Greek island cottage look — don't you think? — which we kind of liked!
After a couple coats of primer and some Ben Moore "Moonlight Yellow," we had a real spare bedroom at last. Honestly, the room wasn't even on our radar during its unfortunate wallpaper days... I rarely remembered it was even there. Now I walk in from time to time just to bask in its sunny glow. (And to huff the last of the paint fumes, obviously.)
In other fixity news, I totally replaced our tenants' kitchen faucet the other night. Shazam!
Anyway, since it's WOL Wednesday, let's do a mad lib, shall we?

Here's how mine came out: Open House, Sun 1-3pm: Cracka-lackin 2-family in Beechwood Knoll section of Wollaston. Fireplaced living rooms, eat-in belly button, hardwood floors, juicy attic, some blue windows, 2-car garage. Lots of emotions. Home needs turkey.
Not too far off, really! What home doesn't need turkey?
