The front hallway in the Mouse House is finished and all mirrors have been hung. Here are some before and after pictures. The walls were in incredibly bad shape. This is not surprising since nothing had been done to the walls since we moved in in 1994. It took a full day to patch, sand, and also to Kilz the ugly upper wallpaper border. My next job will probably be Susan's sales room with the ugly grass-covered wallpaper walls. Good luck to me!

A view of the stairway area after painting. Such pristine walls!
