We have a completely different family room now:
Gone are the forty-year-old Energy Crisis curtains. Gone are the curtain rods which had been on their last legs for at least two and a half decades. The dingy old paint is now covered with brand new paint in a beautiful color.
This morning, the room was the same old drab room it's been for twenty years. Now, it's fresh and vibrant and lovely.
Mrs. Fungus can't stop effusing over it, and to be honest I can't either. It's just such a change and a HUGE RELIEF to have that room repainted.
Left to do: put up the curtains for the south window. I'll do that Saturday, though; I'm beat.
