Painting Popcorn Ceilings

Two summers ago, we installed some window air conditioners. Yay for cool, dry air!

Did you know that when you install a window unit, it needs to be angled, ever-so-slightly so that it drains to the outside? Small, tiny detail. Super, duper important.

Ok, so water drained onto the wooden floor. It then dripped onto the ceiling in our dining room and then the ceiling looked like this.

From Wallpaper to Patched Drywall

We have two guest bedrooms on our second floor. They have always been ugly, and we knew they needed some love. So, in our effort to get our house ready to sell, we decided to tackle the guest bedroom on the right.

When we started, we thought "oh, removing the wallpaper will be easy! It should only take a couple of hours!"

We started with some ugly wallpaper, ugly trim, and seriously ugly drapes.
