But sweet baby Jesus, is that room ever going to look great! Gone is the fugly wallpaper, and soon to be vanquished is the tad too bright yellow that battled the wallpaper for domination of the room for the last dozen years.
It was so satisfying to get that first coat of rich dark olive grey on two of the walls tonight, and I can't wait to roll that calm stone grey on the other four walls. It's going to look so incredible that I may just need to break down and clean the carpet. Either that or burn it. Because that cooty-infested rag with the wine, coffee and cat barf stains is going to look even more nasty once the walls are beautiful.
I could just be talked into showing you some photos if you play your cards right. Of the walls, that is, not the carpet. Nobody needs to see that.
