DIY July- Entry #1

In case you haven't heard, Alan and I have a new apartment
 that we are going to move into very soon.

The rent is pretty cheap, and no more two flights of stairs to climb.

Sounds better already right?

The catch is we get the apartment as is...

This means we are responsible for: cleaning, mudding,
 caulking, sanding, priming, and painting every single room in the apartment. 

Although there is a lot of work ahead of us in a short amount of time,
 the new place feels like home already.

Take into account that this is still a work in progress,
the "after photo" will be with furniture and all.
Before
Chinchilla Gray!
I didn't realize you paint the ceiling, then walls, and finally trim.

So tomorrow I will be doing the ceiling and trim...sigh

The final look will be chinchilla gray walls with white trim and ceiling.

I primed the dining room and hallway today, and for all those who are new to primer paint...
it is strong and you should open a window or a door
otherwise hallucinations and headaches will occur:)

Don't you love the french doors that lead out to the patio?
