Painting walls
"Please show the whole finished wall - if you can - it looks nice in snippets but would look even better as a whole finished project?!"
--- Jayne

I was going to wait to take after photos until the room was more in order, but didn't want to leave you hanging too long! So here's the completed accent wall, with lots of clutter in front of it since I had to move furniture to access wall two.

The wall on the left side of the photo is this week's project. It's on the north side of the trailer and is very irregular --- we boarded up absent windows, and the wall beneath what was once a hole was pretty water-damaged when we got the trailer. Rather than replacing large swaths of wall, I'm hoping some roughing up with more texturing will do the trick. Stay tuned for more photos as the project progresses.
