This photo does not adequately display the horribleness of this room. Besides the turquoise walls and the lime green rug (if you look carefully you can just see it in this photo), they had painted the ceiling blue and had a three-light spotlight for the ceiling light.
We had to essentially make the room into a blank slate (2 coats of Kilz on the walls) to be able to start over again.
White ceiling, new light fixture, pretty color on the walls and newly sanded original wood floors.
We still have to varnish the floors and do window treatments, etc. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!
