Even though this blog looks like my old one, Debbie-Dabble, "Debbie-Dabble Blog" is my new Blog that I created on June 23, 2016, after my old one was hacked through my Debbie-Dabble Face Book Page which I have now deleted!!

I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I recently went Part Time after working full time night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 32 years and have been in nursing for 38 years!

Okay, the transformation of my downstairs has begun!!

I have started to pack everything up, starting with the Living Room in preparation for new wood laminate floors that will be installed the last week of September....

And I have started to  paint.....

This was how the wall below the chair rail in the LR and hallway looked before.....
It was a faux paint treatment that I did , first by sponging paint on then creating a mottled effect by dabbing the wet paint on the wall with plastic bags, pulling it off so to speak.
I still like this effect but wanted to change it up a bit.....

See the colors in the border????

I had this aqua color paint from another project that I did long time ago.

So I painted the wall below the chair rail with this paint.....
This is how it looked.....it sort of has a wall paper look.
It was a bit too bright for me.....
So I did the same treatment......sponge paint on  first and bag it off only using the peach paint on top of the aqua paint!!!!

I like this so much better.....
I love the way it looks with the border......
Don't mind the boxes.....
More pics.....
I think this color will look good against the wood flooring....

I'm still moving things out.....
This wall will stay all together like this because this is where the ceramic tile that creates a foyer is and they will not be working over here.......

I am a color girl and I like the new shades of color in my Living Room!

I also started to paint the textured ceiling from light peach to the same shade of peach on the  wall above the chair rail......
It is going to cause me to have a stroke as it is bleeding through and will take at least 2 good coats. I have the textured celing because 27 years ago when we had replacement windows put in, it was such a tight fit that they really had to wiggle the window in and that caused all my nail heads in my drywall ceiling to pop!!!

No word of lie!!! The textured ceiling hid a multitude of sins, let me tell you!!

This part is done....
So that is the start....... I am off for 2 days and will be painting my fool head off!!

Then I start the Dining Room........

Wish me luck!!
