My order from Earth and Tree arrived on Saturday – already! – and of course, there was no time to waste getting started on putting up wall paper.
The living room paper has a gold Greek Key design across the top, with tiny fleur-de-lis all over. At the last minute (well, almost the last minute) I decided that the wood work would be better done in a light gold-ish brown – Goose Feather, they call it – so I was able to put a quick coat of paint on the door between the living room and the kitchen. The door really does look much better in “real life” than the photo shows, but I didn’t have to worry about getting paint all over the walls and floor – and so I didn’t! The poor door has gotten two coats of white paint, and now one of tan, so it might be a little bit lumpy, but I’ll sand it down before I get much further along.
I have inserted and glued the divider wall, but the ceiling is still not in place, so I have room to maneuver.
Door knobs are on back order, but I’ll be a while before I’m ready for those anyway. I still have to do all of the baseboards, and that will keep me
out of trouble occupied until I’m ready to install the ceiling. I don’t think this project is going to require crown moulding. She said, hopefully.
