Today I applied primer to some areas of the wall, scraped the border off one wall (with hubby's help), and cleaned out 3 bins of found objects. When I found some of these things, I thought for sure I would use them. But 3 years later, I had totally forgot them and would not likely use them now. So out they go. Doesn't seem like a lot of progress, but things are still moving forward.
I've decided on a pale aqua for the walls. I would have purchased the paint today, but I honestly did not want to go out in the snowstorm. That's one of the perks of being retired: I don't go out in weather like this unless I have to!
