I started the ceiling project in 2012 - three years ago - with my then-master bedroom, followed by the dining room, kitchen, hallways, and eventually the guest bath and two small bedrooms as I re-made them a year ago when Sylvan moved in. By the time that I got to the living room, I was out of steam, out of paint, out of time in which to work, and injured, to boot. (I'm still injured, but fuck it).
The holiday weekend past gave me a much-needed break from working two jobs and filling every spare second of time with sleep, depression, and sewing projects (my Very Last Commission Ever is going up on the SCA blog shortly - it's a doozy). What'd I do for Thanksgiving? I painted the goddamned living room ceiling! Yay!
|Halfway there. Bye-bye, stupid blue ceiling that turned the whole house |
into a cave. The paint is [two coats of] a self-priming latex interior which
I mixed to match the other ceilings in the house ("White Clay" by Behr).
The kitchen cabinets are the same color).
|The "clean end" of the room (the other end still had paint stuff|
all over it). I love the feeling of height this gives the room.
|And I adore this little corner. Corner windows: check. |
Table fulla plants: check. Dog sleeping under the table:
Okay, so, technically there IS still one room I haven't gotten around to yet, ceiling-wise: the master bath. But I have plans for the entire master suite (which is now a gigantic craft room), and I'm not touching ANYTHING in there until I'm ready to do the whole room (and have time, and money, and my arm's not trying to fall off, and I'm no longer working two jobs, which I still am at present. Ugh).

P.S.: Oh! Idk if you noticed (does anybody even read this horrible blog? Probably not, but it's still fun to do), but I also rearranged all the furniture. Pics of all very soon, I promise.
