Doors and walls painted black and bright blue, covered with holes and stickers. Are you ready? Despite the advice from our realtor to repaint our colourful walls back to a neutral, off-white, we kept things as is, and the first person who looked at the house fell in love with the colons and ended up buying it. We almost completely redid the kitchen. Don't get me wrong, though; we were happy to be able to buy the house. Below is the bedroom we turned into an office/den. Next is the living room area. You either want to fix up your home so you can sell it in a few years; or possibly you just want to refurbish part or add a new addition to your home. Oh, let me count the ways I didn't like what I saw: Walls and doors were scratched and full of holes, with some yucky paint colons and wallpaper. Thankfully!
