All this slumlording is giving me gray hair.... or maybe I just need to make sure I put on a hat before I start painting. It is truly incredible what a coat of paint can do for a room. I've been painting the smoke-stained ceilings, and the contrast between old and new is stark.
Think I might need two coats.
I'm pretty excited about the difference a few coats of paint can make. This bedroom looks completely unremarkable now. Which is the point. Wait until we get carpet, and you'll never know that this used to be a disaster zone.
And I'm not exaggerating when I call it a disaster zone. This is how the former occupants used their windowsills.
