Sometimes, dreams really do come true.

At least, they sort of do. Domino magazine will be making a brief comeback this month in the form of Domino's Quick Fixes, a single edition stacked with inexpensive spruce ups and DIY home projects. I will be checking newsstands regularly until I get my copy (or two).

Look what I found searching for old Domino covers! I'm not sure how I feel about those chalky neutrals, but I do spy a chubby little Boston in that photo.

Is it possible?

Could it be true? This might be, gulp, wait for it, the end of the wallpaper. We are finally taking charge. We have a few people coming over this week to give us estimates on wallpaper removal for the hallway and our bedroom, and repairs to the dining room and guest bath. I can't even imagine what it will be like to see nice, clean paint on those walls instead of this hideous wallpaper everywhere. It's going to feel like a brand new house again.

In case you forgot just what we're dealing with here.

I know what I'm going to be dreaming of tonight...

ETA: I just realized this means I'll have to decide on a wall color for the bedroom. Eek! We already have paint for the hallway (gray), but I've been having a hard time deciding on what to do for our bedroom. Now I know I want some soothing shade of pale blue, but narrowing that down? Oye! Time to break out the fan deck and my piles of magazines and paint chips.
