Spring is such a tricky trickster. Cold and windy; warm and sunny. I often think of that Charles Dickens quote "...when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."

Alternate title: How to Lie with Photography
I'm painting the walls, window trim, and baseboards in the dining room right now. Yesterday morning I posted this photo to Instagram, which might make a person believe that in one night I managed to transform an entire room.
Well, it is true that I stayed up until 2 a.m. and worked my butt off (not literally. Sadly.) to accomplish what you're seeing there, but it's also true that that is the ONLY section that got painted. This is what the entire dining room really looked like for the rest of that day:
In addition to the wall color only being partially on one wall, I super love the "gallery wall" of all the things from all the other walls that have been slowly migrating to the vertical place where there are still old nails randomly strewn about. Random piece of baseboard trim. Sunroom full of renovation materials. So fancy. Such HGTV. Wow.
Anyway, I just didn't want any of you getting to think that it's just befores and afters up in here. Nope nope. Lots and lots of ugly in-betweens happening, too.
(If you asked a question on the kitchen tour post, I'm gonna get to those lickety split. Swearsies!)
