It’s taken me two and a half years, but as of today, thanks in part to the long Toussaint (All Saints Day) weekend, my living room is finally in a presentable, almost finished state. The ceiling could definitely use a coat of white paint, and two small walls still need scraped, primed and repainted, but with the main wall done, I was able to move furniture and redecorate as I’ve wanted for a while.
Following is a photo timeline of my living room’s metamorphosis (each small photo is linked to its larger size):
Not long afterwards, I discovered tomettes beneath the cheap tile. I began pulling up the tile and restoring the tomettes. This photo, taken in March 2009, shows the progress made. (Tomettes are traditional, burgundy terracotta hexagonal tiles.)
