Much, much thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mycrazyhair, [livejournal.com profile] mightydoll and [livejournal.com profile] lordzowy who came out to my place and helped me paint last night. We got both rooms done, and with two coats of paint, no less! You guys are great!

See the results! )

The only problem is - the bedroom is just too yellow. It was supposed to be gold, but it came out a colour much more suited to a kitchen or child's playroom than adult's bedroom. It's just too cheery for first thing in the morning. I'm not sure what to do - I'm considering ragging a darker colour over top of it to mute it down a little, but I'm not absolutely sure how that even works. And, since I'm the one who picked this colour, I don't trust myself to pick a colour that will work with it properly.

On the plus side, the colour in the main room came out absolutely great. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mycrazyhair for suggesting it!

I was talking with [livejournal.com profile] angelfire1969 last night about the difficulty in unpacking with all my boxes in the room. I described it as a "Wall of Boxes" once you walk in, but I really don't think that does it justice. So, some sample pictures. *g*

Pictures of the mess )
The new place is 6 feet longer in the main room, but not as wide. I've graphed it out, so I'm sure all the furniture will fit (except for the end tables that I didn't really want, anyway). I'm definitely going to have to unpack boxes as soon as they're moved, though, or I'll be in the same spot - unable to unpack because I can't get at shelves to put stuff away.

It'll be fun, though. Organizing/re-arranging a new place is one of the good parts of moving. I never do it once I'm in a place, so this may be my chance to shake things up a bit.
