Coloring On Walls

Eh...I know you are all eagerly anticipating pictures of our recently painted house, but she isn't quite ready for her big debut. We're waiting on our electrician to install the lighting. Waiting...waiting...waiting. Hasn't that been the theme of this entire project? I hope we won't have to wait too much longer.

Chris and I have been busy though.  Interested in an update of our hallway project?

Chris made scaled drawings of the hallway to help determine size and placement of the picture molding and chair rail. After several iterations, here's where we ended up.
(I'll note here that Chris's drawing was to scale until I mucked it up with the image of my new mirror. The mirror is is actually smaller than the panel will be.)
(Wait just another second... I see now that the molding to the right of doorway isn't right. I'll have to let my husband/designer/contractor know).

Where was I?
Oh yes.
We're also having the electrician wire for sconces, so the drawings helped us see where we should hang them in relation to the mirror and panels.  They'll go right smack in the middle of each panel to the right and left of the mirror. 

Now the fun part-- Drawing on the old wallpaper with a bright red marker to help see how it is going to look in real life. 

 Oops! Made a mistake there.
But get the picture?
