The bedroom went from dingy white to Martha Stewart’s “Surf” in under 5 hours thanks to my family and boyfriend. I will give myself some credit- I taped the entire room and had two walls mostly done-ish by the time they arrived. Ok maybe two halves of two walls. Details. Details! But it was Doke & Double B’s ingenious thinking and arm strength that solved the I-don’t-have-enough-blue-paint problem by painting a crisper white above the picture rail and all over the ceiling (perk of being apartment manager- access to the maintenance room and extra paint).While they painted, I took a lot of beer breaks. My mom was on Finn duty and totally got out of having to get any paint on her.
The room is definitely not done but it looks more like a room I can peacefully rest in without the ugly walls, boxes of cds, and piles of laundry. Oh wait. The laundry is still there- I just cut it out of the final photo. And the cds are still in boxes but they are now in the living room. And nothing is hanging on the walls yet.
My apartment is slowly coming together. Someday soon I WILL be posting a video tour of it. I swear!
