My Parent’s Bedroom Makeover

I am the 5th of twelve children myself.  My mother is having a hard time getting around for the past year. Her leg has been hurting and they live in a raised ranch and the stairs are getting hard on her. My parents would like to move soon to a ranch and their house needed some major updating. You see the only updating they did to their house was to add wall paper, paneling and kitchen cabinets twenty years ago or more.
During the summer while the children were off school and we had some extra time. We decided to help my parents out and renovate their house. We wanted to do this so when they need to put their house up for sale they will be get a better offer. We would really like them to move out by us.
We will be showing some of the things we did and how we did them. Most of them are great projects for a do it yourselfer.
This is my parents bedroom before we removed the wall paper and painted. I actually put the wall paper up for her, probably 25 years ago. (I never thought I would be the one taking it down) Unfortunately,  I did not take pictures of the during,  We used non-toxic Shaklee Basic H to remove the wall paper. I will be posting about how to do that soon. (I took pictures of another room.)
