One of the reasons we didn't travel much this winter was that we were working on the house, specifically the room that used to be Jesse's. I forgot to get before pictures, so they start in the middle of wallpaper removal and paint stripping and after the old, blue wall-to-wall carpet was removed.
At this point, the walls are all patched, the woodwork is sanded, and the floors covered with plastic; we're now ready for primer.
A couple views with the ceilings painted and primer on the walls.
Paint on the walls and woodwork and floor refinishing in progress. Up to this point it was a rush, since we had scheduled the floor work at a time we thought was far in the future but really wasn't. You can't see it, but the room was rewired, too.
