Working on the Last Room of The House

We've been working on our final room in the house. There are lots of little touch-up's to do on the rest of the house, but we've been dreading getting in the last room because it was such a mess. When Tim and Kathe came out in June, Tim helped us add a closet overhang and add texture to the walls in that room. So, the time finally came for us to get started.

Before I talk about what we did this weekend, let's take a look at all that we've done so far.

This is how the room looked when we moved in:
My dad helped us knock out the entire wooden structure right when we moved in:
When we ripped out the wooden loft, we noticed that the previous owners had wrecked the closet overhang:
Tim helped us drywall a new closet overhang:
He taped it off and textured the walls:

So that is how the room sat for months and months...until this weekend. This weekend, we picked out and purchased new paint, purchased everything we needed for the wainscoting, borrowed my dad's compressor, ripped out all the baseboards, taped off the ceiling, and painted. Mr. Howard had the entire room painted by about 5pm yesterday. Today I'm going to muster the strength to head to Lowes again for more paint (so Mr. Howard can do touch-ups tonight).

Oh my gosh, it's horrendous. And they used rollers on the walls, and didn't pay attention when they got close to the ceiling. So you can see where the rollers hit the ceiling in like 8 places (you'd think they would have figured it out the FIRST time). They also decided to paint the door half green and half blue. Who paints a door frame???
