The ceiling is newly painted and it looks wonderful! Gone are the yellow and orange "silly string" stains in one of the corners. Sorry, I forgot to photograph them. They were there courtesy of Joe! I'm sure he's happy the "Kilz" worked!
The walls have a coat of primer on them (the multitude of spackle spots are gone!) and soon they'll be freshly painted with Behr's Cottage White. Katie has some leftover paint that I'll be using for shelves that fit on either side of the window. It's the color of masking tape. It'll be a nice contrast against the walls. I can't believe this is all coming together so quickly. Thank you, thank you, thank you to my husband Bill for doing all the patching and sanding and painting!
