When Deb moved into her current apartment, she wanted the living area done in an ancient-Egyptian sort of theme, and asked me to help out. I painted giant stone blocks on her walls...

|"grout lines" that form the "blocks" beer ^|
|Finished! This job took about 16 hours - two 8-hour days, over a weekend.|
|a "plaster" "crack" to end the block wall at the dining room, hee|
|biggest. television. ever.|
Deb painted this red wall herself, and framed and hung all the artwork. The Isis next to the door was actually painted for Debi by another friend of ours, as a gift; the papyrus over the television is one another friend of hers brought to her from a vacation in Egypt.
Why post this today? Debi's moving...which means we have to prime over ALL of that and paint it boring old apartment-white again. She's stressing it more than I am - I repaint everything in my house at least once a year, so I'm not worried about losing the work (I've painted over more work than this, believe me). We're planning a Xena/castle theme for her next place. Hee. :)
