White Paint

The ceiling and walls are the same paint, which creates an airy open feeling. I am not a fan of ceiling paint, it seems oppressive paired with white walls as well as being completely unnecessary. White paint accentuates the view too. The floors will be oak, stained to match door slabs and baseboard. There will be sills and aprons on the windows. The counter top is cherry butcher block- 1/10 of the cost of honed slate, which I love but is a little bit cold and harsh for this application. The base cabinets are maple. All of the door knobs, window hardware, and cabinet pulls are bronze. The hall doors are wood with full length frosted glass panels. Light fixtures and ceiling fans are nickel. Oh and I saved my rewards and got two area rugs and a coffee table for $23.75- go me!

There is a LOT to say on a variety of topics but I’m saving it until I get through this final push.

    Hoping you have added what you dreamed would be done at this moment. Still trying to close on an apartment myself and finding the process maddening!
