What's done is done.

So I got off my fat butt and finished my living room today.

Also, I've never used so much math in my life as now, working on this joint. Honest.

Also, I'm more sceered of the saw now than ever.

Also, check out all these pieces.

That's probably half.

But the living room, man. The living room is done. Really. Okay, fine-- mostly.

I'm tired, man.

I need a hot bath.

I stinketh.

Of course we need a before. Of course!

And it just needed a little somethin' somethin'. Didn't it?

Trim. Trim makes everything better. EVERYTHING. It even goes with veggies. True story.

And again, here is my freak out point.

But I pressed on. Let's get some angles, baby!

Umkay. My main wall. My couch wall.


Um, I um, have one leg longer than the other er something. . .er maybe a hump back. Er both. That's why I can't take a straight picture. . . (do you feel like you're falling over?)
My aquarium wall.


This other, (and seriously bowed {I found out}) wall.

See. Look?

I'm not knockin' my house- everyone has a bowed wall somewhere or other.


Are these bams annoying? Also, apparently I need to clean my wall 'smore. I really did clean it though- I swear.
(thanks Jace)

That there's a pencil in my mouth. It's to help with the pain. The pain of being a pain in the A!
Next up- trimming out those windows.
Stealin' my brother and sister in law's gawgeous trim idea- with their permission of course:

Like so. Stay tuned.

Wow, the trim makes such a huge difference! I love that you didn't do the standard placement that you see in model homes and such. It really looks great!
