Painting Update...

So I finished all of the walls today. Except for the one that needs to be wallpapered...but more on that in a moment.

The three walls have now been completed, two coats of paint and all. All in all it probably only took me about 2.5 hours to get the three walls painted with both coats. Not too bad.

Tomorrow I will be doing trim work...around the floors, around the doors, around the windows, and cutting in the ceiling to get it ready for paint. The windows will literally be ONLY having the trim done, as they are wooden windows and currently are a bit wet due to condensation forming on the inside of them. So I'll be leaving the windows themselves just white until it gets a bit warmer outside, and in turn the condensation won't be an issue anymore.

So hopefully after tomorrow, all that will be left to do for now is getting the wallpaper up and painting the ceiling. Speaking of the ceiling, Cathy and I found a ceiling fan that we really like at Meijer. We'll probably end up picking it up to replace the rickety one that's in the room now.

But...about that wallpaper. We might have a bit of a predicament on our hands. Lowe's is phasing wallpaper out, and Home Depot hasn't carried it for over two years. Seems nobody is using it anymore (which I figured might be a problem) so we've got slim pickin's at Lowe's. However, they did have one there that I actually thought wouldn't be too bad, so tomorrow we'll be going to Sherwin Williams to see if they carry any wallpaper. If they don't, then we'll have to head back to Lowe's and grab the last few rolls of the stuff that seemed pretty good. If Sherwin Williams has some stuff, though, I'm sure we'll be able to find something good there.
