Pretty decent improvement from that drab blue color with all the mismatched trim colors. The new wall color is Icy Mint by Valspar and the moldings and closet are Ultra White by Valspar (I got all of them while they had a $5 mail in rebate - score!). And the closet! Seriously, why would you have a closet any color but white? It just looks so clean and fresh.
Over the last week, I had been taking car loads of my crafting stuff over to the house and moving it into the downstairs rooms in preparation of finishing. Once I scraped the paint and put Orange Glow on the floor, I started hauling it all upstairs. Basically, I got my workout for the day - for real! I made at least 20 trips up my steep staircase all while carrying boxes and bags of fabric and yarn and supplies. I put most of it in the closet and I've still got to work out some of the bags of stuff, but it's all contained so I can still figure out the furniture situation without having to move a bunch of stuff each time. I even brought a comfy butterfly chair up there I haven't used since college just so I would have somewhere to sit and hang out if I felt like it :)
So, I have one room done and ready for moving in :) We also made more progress on other places this weekend that I will report later once I get the pics off my phone. In the meantime, I'll just stare at pictures of my fabulous room and dream of when I'm moved in and can put everything in its place :)
