These pictures don't really show things well, but it will give you an idea. I keep forgetting to take before pictures, sorry. I pulled this first one off the zillow site for the house. Everything was painted this blechy beige color. That plus the wood trim makes the house look old even though it's got great space and potential.
Last night hubby went out by himself and went a little paint crazy. He bought this professional grade paint sprayer and really wanted to try it out. Since we planned on scraping these ceilings he didn't bother to tape anything. He also wanted to rip the carpet out and just leave the plywood floor until we get around to phase 2 tiling, so he didn't cover it. Everything now is a light gray with a hint of blue in it. It feels a lot lighter. (That weird green strip is in a different room and will be gone soon.)
The lighting is really bad in the girl's room. K chose this bright yellow for her two walls. A picked a soft violet for hers. I'll try and get a photo with both colors in it the next time I go out. It's not as scary as I thought it would be, and once they get furniture in it will look even better.
Our rollout will be delivered tomorrow and it will be back to moving walls and the kitchen. This time from the floor out of the house. I can't wait to see the space as it will be without all of that trash. It already looks and feels better. Once it's clean, we will be ready to rebuild the back side of my closet wall (only in a different place) and get the tiles in. I picked this great looking white ash wood looking stuff. It sort of looks like reclaimed wood, only whitewashed.
