MAKING A HAPPY HOME MONDAY


Hey, guys. It's that time of the week again. I hope you will join me for Making a Happy Home Monday. The premise behind this blog carnival that I host is easy. I hope to encourage or inspire other women to pick an area of their homes and make it happier. You either make it a prettier space, a cleaner space or a more functional space.

It doesn't have to take long time. It can be as simple as sweeping off your front porch or as big as the project that I'm going to post about. If you choose to join me (and I really hope you will), I need you to link up on Mr. Linky. The link that you connect to needs to refer back to this post. Any post not referring back here will be deleted.

For my entry of Making a Happy Home Monday, I'm going to show off my hubby's hard work in our dining room.

Do you remember
this? This post contains several pictures of my kiddos coloring on the walls of the dining room. And if you knew, or could tell, how cruddy the wall paper was, then you knew that the coloring is actually an improvement. During my hubby's last vacation, he was able to strip the paper and paint. Here is the final product. Pretty, huh? I don't have curtains because we are about to get all of our windows replaced.

D did an awesome job. Wallpaper removal stinks out loud. I've always hated it, but lately I have seen some really cool new patterns! Hmmmmm...

Is this the Mr Linky I signed? I can't remember - I'm a bit airheaded sometimes. I'm just trying to find the permalink. I'll use this one anyway just in case I don't hear back. I LOVE the color of you walls by the way!!
