Bedroom #1

BEFORE: This was one of the last rooms we tackled. We had tried to set up a little play area for the kids in here--a respite from all the piles of rubble and sharp power tools. From a painter's perspective--this room was miserable. It took 3 coats of primer to cover the vine stenciling. The fish mural was painted with some kind of puffy, glittery fabric paint, and after FIFTEEN coats of primer, the large red fish continued to bleed through. I would have nightmares about that red fish! I finally hit it with a sander and re-textured it--mission accomplished!
