I've gotten the itch that my life needs change. More like a renovation. Since I actually like my life (as chaotic as it may be at times), I decided to wreck the house.
We bought the house from a 92 year old woman. She knew her stuff when it came to gardening, but for decor? Let's just say it looks like a 92 year old woman lived here. It's not the age of the house, my house before was built in 1922 and it had so much character...*sigh* it was adorable. This? Ugly.
I decided that the kitchen was the first place to start. I can't afford for real renovations, so I thought we would take down the orange and yellow flowered wallpaper and slap some paint up there. You should have seen the look on Jaysen's face when I told him to tear off the wallpaper! He looked at me like I was thirteen kinds of crazy. Once he was sure I wasn't joking, and he really could rip off the wallpaper, he had a blast.
When we first moved in this house, the first thing I said was "that wallpaper has to go." Trust me- this is in the running for the World's Ugliest Wallpaper. At least that's what I thought until I saw what was UNDER it.

And the atrocity that lay beneath it:
A little closer...
Oh yes, folks...those are chickens.
