How's This One?

I tried to just put the fancy font on the extras and leave the posts plain, but haven't figured out how to yet.  So, until then I'll just be plain.  Is this font ok?  Size? Color?

I finished up painting the dining room today.  That took toooooo long.  But I learned a lot and hopefully we can figure out an easier way to do the rest of the house.  90 year old lathe and plaster that's been patched repeatedly just isn't easy to paint.  It looks better, but I think it could still look even better.  Just not by me and not right now. 

I'm still working on wallpaper removal, so the kitchen looks fantastic, let me tell ya.  No.  Not really.  It's one of those things that you wish you never started.  Kinda like removing the areas in the bathroom where they put wallpaper and contact paper over woodish paneling.  And the random picture of the puppy from the toilet paper package they'd glued on.  Dumpling was a bit sad when I ripped that one off.

I could go on and on about all sorts of lovely things were done to improve the house somewhere around the 60's, but I'm going cross-eyed and need to try and wash the paint out of my hair before I go to sleep.

Chuckle-the random puppy picture.... I will never cease to be amazed at what some people will do to their houses. My brother found all sorts of interesting things when he remodeled his house, the neatest being a news paper he found under the kitchen linoleum (permanently) stuck to the floor, dated 1913.

Visualize the end result, visualize the end result, visualize the...
