Step 2: Paint It White!

I wish I had a nickel for each time that I told someone to 'paint it white!'

Well, this doesn't look like much right now, but it's a vast improvement already over the glossy 1980's oak look that this had originally- the only thing is that now that it's painted "Swiss Coffee" (what the Hell is Swiss Coffee, anyhow?) the AC unit in the roof stands out quite a bit.  The mattresses are two custom twin beds that are coming out to make a platform for a queen bed with nightstands on either side (there was originally a nightstand in the middle, which will be removed.  My painters, Kurt and David of Las Palmas Painting have been wonderful.  They did an amazing job of masking everything off exceptionally well, which is the difference between a good paint job and a mediocre one. 

I am still surprised at how many people think I'm not actually going to live in this!
