It was about 2 years ago that my husband and I decided to buy our very first House…
Obviously we couldn’t afford anything Grand, so we bought an outdated fixer-upper House, in the Hart of the Moot!

This is the first project that we decided to do, as it would cost little to nothing and I couldn’t STAND looking at the painted brick wall any longer. So, We decided to start stripping the wall paint, and Oh my, am I glad we did!

It took two full days of hard work, applying the stripper, scrapping of the paint, steel brushing, sanding and Repeat! Until we reached the desired look. It completely changed the look, feel and atmosphere of the dinning/ living room!
