This hallway makeover has been almost a year in process. Last summer after Kenny had his second knee surgery, my mom came to stay with him, so that we could attend a party in Boston. While we were gone she took down the wallpaper in the living room and washed the walls, the following week was fourth of July and I finished the project by doing the same in the hallways. Then it stayed like that . . . for a long time. My plan was to finish it over the Christmas holidays but I got sick. During the long weekend in January I primed everything and just doing that brightened up the space. I finally got around to the painting in March and I have all the finishing touches completed for half the total space (one side of the front and one side of the back).
