Merry Christmas

Remember this photo? When I took this photo just 15 days ago not even I believed that we would actual finish before Christmas. It seemed, well, hopeless.

And this is from today. What a difference a bit of paint can do. Of course a bit of cleaning also helped.
We've worked so hard for these past couple of weeks ending Wednesday night where I after 11 hours at work decorated the Christmas tree at 1:30AM. We've even managed to get some kind of lighting in there thanks to a hair band and tape. It might be pretty, but it's there. It was worth all the hard work. Even if Mother Nature might have decided that we won't be getting the Christmas we had imagined but more about that some other time. Right now in this minute all I want is to be grateful how far we've come.

Merry Christmas Everyone!


  1. this looks awesome Jeanet -- I can't believe this transformation happened so fast -- you are absolutely incredible. The blue is a perfect, inviting, refreshing color.

  2. WOOOOOWWWWWW! I am in the process of setting up my new computer and happed to see your blog entry on my igoogle home page and had to peek. OMG Jeanet, I can't believe what you accomplished in 2 weeks. The "after" photo of the room is just so beautiful. I love the happy blue color and the black and white furnishings and accent pieces. You must be so happy just to sit and enjoy the room!
