Spent all weekend painting (half of) the living room. It's a beautiful satin, deep, grey. Two walls are this colour: the other two, where the windows are, will be much lighter.
When I hired the guys to paint the tallest ceilings last week, I forgot that the living room has a high ceiling too. The ceiling is stained wood, and does not need painting, but the walls go high up into the point of the roof, and it's really, really tricky to paint the edge of the wall up there. I need scaffolding or a step-ladder that's twice as tall as the one I have.
