So, due to popular request (and the fact that progress IS slowly being made) here are some before and after pictures of stuff we have done so far in a few rooms:
Here's is the old view looking down the hallway in to the living room at the back wall of the house that runs between the living room and kitchen. Zeus had painted the wall a color called Caribbean Blue and yes, it was an electric blue color. It worked in his bachelor pad, but I love earthy colors and was trying to figure out how to merge the two. Zeus said that I could change the color if I needed, though I'm sure it broke a little of his heart. I honestly didn't mind it, but with all the furniture that I was bringing in and the colors I wanted to put on the walls in other areas, it became kind of hard to fit in.
Here's the final product, walls finished (except for touching up over the original color along the ceiling), drapes hung, wall things hung, and furniture arranged. The flash didn't go off, so it's a little darker than it looks in actuality. I love it and having new paint and some of my furniture in it makes it really feel like home. That's all for now. Going to watch a movie with the husband and grab some grub. More pics of other rooms later. (Oh, in this pic you can see the changing table we got on the far right side. It's currently in the kitchen as we get ready to paint Mia's room.) :)
