I know — fell off the face of the planet again. But I’m not writing, so don’t really want to post in this LJ, which is supposed to be all about the writing.
However, I’ve had a number of people ask me about the condo, so I thought I’d post some pictures.
The first four pictures are of the place before I started painted.
Outside of condo
From DR to LR
From dining room toward living room, before.
From LR to DR
Looking from living room toward dining room. Notice the French doors separating the two spaces. Again, before I started painting.
Looking from dining room toward the kitchen — it really is that tiny. About 5′ x 5′. Again, before I started painting.
I painted one wall in the living room using Ralph Lauren’s metallic gold paint, as well as the entrance way.
I painted the other walls in the living room, as well as the dining room, a matching gold color, Mesa Gold. In most lights, you can’t tell the difference between the golds. (The accent wall is the one on the left.)
I did the bedroom in raspberry, with white trim, then used the gold on the molding near the ceiling. (It had been baby shit brown.)
Apartment details. The door knobs are everywhere in the apartment — most of the plates are painted, however. Will take a weekend sometime and strip the paint off.
Dowel covering corner
Another detail — there are dowels like this covering the corners of the entrance way.
Empty rooms (dining room looking toward the living room) with shiny floors!
They had radiator covers similar to this on all three radiators.
Here’s one of the radiators. (They’re all like this.)
Yes, they are all like this. (And no, I don’t know why they had those ugly covers over them.)
I bought this a while ago. It fits *perfectly* here.
