I went over to the apartment tonight to drop off some frozen foods and to take a look at the painting in progress. I have no idea whether this is an accurate depiction of the walls in the 2nd bedroom. I couldn't find the light switch and I didn't want to run my grubby hands over walls that were barely dry. So I took this photo in the pitch dark room, with a flash, and you are seeing it for the first time, as am I. I am so glad I decided to spring for taking down the ugly wall mounted yucky bookcases- and delighted with all the blissfully smooth walls. This is the only room where the shutters are finished, rather than white-painted wood. The white ones are at the shop getting painted, and will be back soon.
The second photo is the living room. As it is mostly fireplace, it's mostly trim, but you can see the wall color above the mantle. It was taken with a flash, too, but in a lighted room, as was the one of the dining room, below:
It is a fabulously tidy job,of painting, far beyond the sort of paint job I could pull off, and I'm really tickled. I think it's going to look pretty good. (Gotta straighten that bottom shelf on the dining room built-in! Crooked stuff drives me crazy, perhaps a residue of my 7 pre-law-school, post-college years as a picture framer.)
I have two more days to get organized, and I'm a mite addled, and tired, but looking forward to being there.
