Weekend Painting

It has been a long weekend.  Not just because Friday was Christmas, either! Here are some before pictures:

And here is what we accomplished this weekend - primer + two coats of paint.  The first two pictures are of the bathroom.  The color does not show up well because I took the picture in the dark - there are no lights in there yet.

The dark-colored corner is where the TV will be.  The door to the right is the bathroom door.

The closet wall.  To the left is the wall across from the TV area.

This is the bedroom area.  The wall which adjoins the dark wall to the right is where the bed will go.

There is touch up that must be done, as there is with any amateur paint job, but we thought we'd wait until the workmen leave, as they might cause minor damage that needs to be fixed.

I'm not in a hurry to do any more painting!  I could hardly move on Saturday night after working all day.  I keep saying it, but I can't wait until this project is done.  The plan is that the work will be done by New Year's, as the contractor has to start another job on January 4.  The floor has to be installed in the bedroom and TV areas; the electrical needs to connected to the breaker box, and all the outlets and switches installed; all the moulding (baseboard and door) must be cut and nailed in place; the DVD rack will be placed in the wall opening; the doorknobs inserted; and anything else I've forgotten.  Finish work seems to take lots of time.  I do not know how people endure big remodeling jobs without losing their sanity.
