The house is in a general state of upheaval and chaos. It has always felt cave-like in here and so now, after nearly 9 years of living here, we've finally bit the bullet and decided to paint the main living areas.
The rest of the house (hallway and bedroom) has long since been darkened and brightened with varying shades of greens, plums, taupes and sunny yellows. We'd paint the great room ourselves, but the room is vaulted and we'd really like it to last us another 9 years (which means it should be done right).
We are once again living in the basement. Upstairs, the furniture has been pushed to the centers of the rooms and covered over in makeshift plastic tents taped to the floor. The remaining floor space has been covered in brown paper, resulting in a very crinkly-sounding house.
Unfortunately, the camera is taped into the hutch right now - so, no pictures. The paint store had messed up and mixed the wall color for the baseboards and ceiling, but we caught it before the whole house had been done and it looks much better now. The whole thing should be done by Friday, which means an onslaught of pictures for Monday.
