The fruits of our labors are finally starting to flower. Paint is officially on the walls in our living room, and the floors of the bathroom have been stained and are awaiting a finish coat of polyurethane.
We decided to go with a really light green on the living room walls (Sherwin-Williams' "Sprout" to be exact). Two coats of primer made covering the walls very easy. We'll still hit the walls with another coat of paint to be safe.
