another room!

Another room painted!  Two down, four and a half to go (one is a landing area, which hardly counts as a whole room)!

Before to after, green to brown, tired to greasy:
I've decided taping really really sucks.  It's tedious and annoying.  It was especially annoying this time because the tape wasn't sticking as well to the molding.  We're not sure why - it's the same tape we used in the other bedroom.  Maybe humidity?  In any case, I'm a little nervous to pull the tape off when the walls dry... we might have some trim touchups in our future.

I'll post more pictures later when the walls are dry and we move the furniture back in.  Luckily it's a gorgeous, breezy day outside, so we're thinking we can move stuff back in this evening.  Hooray!

Dave's celebratory lunch:
Easy Cheesy Pasta Bake
2c. whole wheat pasta
4c. tomato sauce
2T. italian seasonings
1t. garlic salt
3-4c. cheese

Boil pasta until soft.  Drain.  Mix pasta, tomato sauce, seasonings, salt, and 2c. cheese.  Spread in greased small casserole dish.  Top with remaining cheese.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until brown and bubbly.
