Progress! I mean, if you consider making work for yourself as progress

This weekend, I got the sudden urge to tear down drywall, while I was drinking coffee.

So, I did.

I removed all the drywall in the dining room. It was at about this point that I was all “Ahhhh! What did I do?!”

See - dust and debris everywhere!

I make poor decisions.

Then, I spent several hours with a drill, removing hundreds of screws. And I have concluded that I am worse at screw removal than the average person.

The walls are not in terrible shape, actually. They need a very, very thorough cleaning. Most of the damage is from the screw holes from the drywall.

Now, I’m trying to convince myself to not just embrace the green, and to prep the walls for new paint.

As of right this moment, green is in the winning. Retro dining room

I did get the second coat of Benjamin Moore Dark Harbor (25% darker) on part of the kitchen wall. The color is so amazing. I’m glad that I discontinued the hunt for the perfect gray and went the opposite direction. I found the color accidentally, by googling Benjamin Moore colors – and this picture popped up:

I just knew that I had to get that color in my life.

Here’s how it looks with the brick, and walnut floor:
