Partial End Result…

17 06 2010

Last week I had talked about peeling wallpaper,scrubbing walls and painting and, well, here’s the fruits of my labor.
Well, okay, Steve helped…

Windowed wall, "Before"

Windowed wall, wacky green #1

Windowed wall, wacky green #2

Funny thing is, the entire room is painted the same color, for some reason, it just shows up different.

Before moving the furniture back into the front room, I washed the walls and well, clearly the carpet isn’t the only thing I should have been embarrassed about.
“Is my nesting kicking in or is our house trashed?”
“Oh, it’s trashed.”
“Whew! Glad it’s not just me!”
He was installing the trim upstairs while I was cleaning the items to put back into the front room. Ew. So, our house is still 75% trashed, but there’s no place available to vacuum, so we’re in a catch-22.

Well, if you don’t mind the job take two-to-three times as long…

Oh dear. If I was one of those queer fellas from the TV, I would tell you that floor lamps are so yesterday. Maybe some furniture would really help out that room.

Everyone sleeps on the floor, next to the lamp.

We have a changing table… and um… I think the correct answer is “no”.
I was going to get the crib soon, but I think I’ll wait to see how the gift card shower gods smile upon me.

Very nice…I kind of miss doing “my houses.” I don’t miss the “border era.” of interior decorating.

Good lord, I don’t know what the previous owners obsession with border was, but if I had a time machine… small “remodeling” jobs are fun, don’t know that I could do it for a paycheck though.

The room looks great! I think that’s the same green I have in my laundry room – my, what good taste you have 🙂 It shows up different for me too, depending on the time of day – I like that it’s not the same all the time…

I’ve never really had this phenomena happen with paint before- cheaper than redecorating every other day.
It’s “Mint Condition” by Sherwin-Williams. After we chose paint, I realized that our bedroom wall is green, as is the bathroom… and the kitchen wall… guess we like green.

Love the green paint. My den is VERY green with dark wood. It looks fab.

One of our upstairs bedrooms has colour-changing greens in it too (one colour for the upright walls, a lighter shade on the sloping parts).

That’s a nice shade of green, very soothing.
