Here are some "before pictures".
Mother had very formal taste. I find it charming. Please note the dining room had drapes that PERFECTLY matched the wall paper.
Please know Scott was out of town all week for the wallpaper removal and repainting extravaganza. I couldn't have done it all without some special ladies. Thanks mom, Erin, Holly, Janet, Tiffany and Jessey. Also to dad and John who did all the manly things, like removing doors.
