Derrick scraped off the popcorn ceiling and patched the holes, put up 1/4" sheetrock on the one wall, mudded, patched, painted.... Oh, and he took the trim off to re-seal the room because occasionally we would see bat wings/bits hanging down on the wall below the trim just a bit.
I'm wondering if one colored wall was enough, but it turns out that it actually makes the wood look a lot better. So it will just be how it will be. I'll hang stuff on the wooden walls and then it won't be so much.
We'll just do white accents for everything. Maybe switch out these curtains for the white ones in the other room, white crib, etc.
Still need to: do more electrical, install new lighting, repair closet door, clean out remaining stuff...
I really like the green color, though. (It looks dark in the picture, but that's the lighting--that room gets no light in the morning--it's really quite bright.) I'm thinking of other places I could use it in the house (our bedroom is already a sagey-slightly-more-muted green). Maybe the kitchen needs to go from brown to green. Man, was I ever nuts about earth-tone neutrals when we were first repainting over the hideousness of the previous owners.
