The house continues as a disaster zone, but a few little things here and there are slowly transforming it.
My craft room was the color of a dreamsicle and had a big old fluorescent shop light for a fixture. Now it has Belle yellow walls and Cinderella blue ceiling with a ceiling medallion and brass chandelier, plus a stained glass window instead of curtains. Big improvement!
The parlor got its ceiling medallion, new switches and switchplates(the brass is the old one, wood is the new) and one of the paintings is up!
