My point is this. Once we took everything off the walls and off the surfaces, our rooms looked so much bigger! Even with most of the furniture still remaining. And since I am in a major decluttering phase, all the pictures and artwork that came down will not be going back up.
In my office during the gray and dreary days (which I happen to love, by the way), I always enjoy burning a candle. I love the flickering light and scent of cinnamon. But I guess I never looked up and realized it was creating so much soot up near the ceiling. *sigh* No more candles for me. I want to keep the ceiling nice and clean, and the walls, too, once they get repainted.
Yeah, I know. Really interesting picture, but can you see the fingerprints that the ceiling contractor left when he was up there working? Ugh!
So there is a lot of painting that will be taking place in the next couple of weeks. Definitely stay tuned for that, because watching paint dry is something you won't want to miss!
Now to figure out what to do with all this....
I'll show you what I come up with, but if you have any great ideas, feel free to share.
