How to turn an old room new again

First off I'd like to thank those who helped me today my 4 neighbors who helped: Paint, Babysit, and Re-Organize for all their time and effort.  I'm very blessed to have such great neighbors.

Paint!  What a wonderful thing. I  spent $200 on paint last night, turns out I didn't need to buy that much.  Who'da thunk I could paint half my entire house with two cans of paint?  Anyway I have 2 1/2 cans of unused, unopened paint, but I'm sure I'll find a use for it somewhere, eventually.

Here are some finished pictures of my work:

I must admit that this project was not quite the undertaking I had expected.  I decided to try a new item (new to me at least.)  Have you heard of Sureline?  A newer brand of painting supplies that eliminate the need for taping.  Take a look at this:

All of the trimming was done with the new eder by Sureline, no tape and it went SO FAST!  Love it!
My rating of Sureline's line of painting supplies is 5 stars.  Made this busy woman very happy!

Now that I've finished painting I can finally do a few vinyl projects I've been waiting to try out for several months now.  Get ready.  It's coming.
