I got my boards sanded and primered then Donnie came home from work. Since the work we do usually conflicts with each other, I can't move on to the painting since he will be sanding. We use oil on everything outside and with the lengthy dry-time, the fresh paint will be full of sanding dust, so now it's his shift to work on the porch. That's ok though cause I can always find other things to do which at the moment is goof off for a minute or two.
So, here's the hallway. I had a medium green paper that I wanted to use in the hall of my old house before I moved and am considering using it in the hall here. The hall project is a long way off so as a temporary measure, I painted the current wallpaper in an approximate color that would emulate the overall color of the future wallpaper. I wasn't sure Donnie would be comfortable with it so dark, so I figured now would be a better time to find out than at the end of the project! Besides, the whole hall was white walls and white walls are like camera flash-they don't enhance character. I think the green is beautiful, so here it is:
