So, my landlord has spent the last few days painting the front room of my apartment. Today, I got a call that it was finished. (I've been staying with my parents to be out of the way, and to avoid paint fumes.)


Before


After!


I am unreasonably excited about decorating now.

What a wonderful change - so much brighter.

Yeah...I've found that it feels a little smaller, but brighter and more cheerful.

I LOVE IT! White walls with wood trim are so pretty. And it really shows up your awesome windows. :D

Yes, the bank of windows is quite nice, and I'm definitely looking forward to decorating them. Hence the pic in my new post :D

I love it already! It feels like such a relief walking in there. I didn't realize it was so oppressive before.

Haha, I'm already having fun thinking about decorating...I was fiddling with photoshop this morning, planning out my curtains.

Oh lovely!!!! Hooray for non-woody-looking paneling! I love white. White white white! And it's pretty with the trim and doors left woody. I love that dresser on the left too.

How did you take such a panoramic picture? Do you have a special lens? Fancy!!!

I have a panoramic function on my little digital point-and-shoot...you take three pictures in sequence and it stitches them together for you. It's really nifty!

I love the white. I probably wouldn't pick it if I owned my own house, but I'm super thrilled with it and I'm really loving how great it looks with the wood tones.

The dresser was a "rescue." My mom and I salvaged it out of the basement of my great uncle's estate when he died. It had fairly significant water damage and the top is still all warpy, but an hour or two with some soap and the garden hose, and it's perfectly good to use!
