We have been quite busy with our house trying to get unpack and settled and give it our own style. I was gonna do a before and after, but I'm too tired and I am just so excited to put these up. If any of you remember what this house looked like with all the floral 80's wallpaper, then you'll understand. Yes, I know it's only a rental, but I need to be happy where I live. The wallpaper removal was a complete nightmare, but it's finally over thanks to many family members who helped out, especially our moms. The kids also contributed with the painting. Wes and I painted the dining room by ourselves and had a good time together. The plate wall in my dining room is the start of my plate collection. I love plates! I decided I am mainly sticking to black and white plates and a splash of red. Hope you like them!
