- If I Were Redecorating
I already have plans (more plans than money, at this point).
I want to plaster our walls throughout the house. One, we have a mobile home, so there are those seams with cheap pieces of trim covering them. And secondly, a succession of cats have clawed said cheap trim pieces all around the doors. Plastering hides a multitude of sins. I can strip away all the trim and cover the seams and make the edges of the doors neat again.
I also think that a good coat of plaster on the walls will help some with the insulation (it's amazing how much cold air seems to seep directly through the paneling.
In addition to the plaster, all of the rooms will get a new color. I'm thinking a taupe for our bedroom and en suite bathroom. In the kitchen I want light blue walls and I also want to paint the dark, ugly cabinets white (I'm thinking of a distressed or whitewashed look, so I don't have to spend hours sanding and being meticulous). I still haven't decided about the living room, although I haven't ruled out some sort of hand-painted pattern on white walls.
