Amazing What a Coat of Paint Can Do

While I was in New Orleans, we boarded Kiwi and had some painting done. I don't mean to turn this into the Home Renovation blog, but I suspect my mother sent me all of these pictures so that she could just send my link to her friends.

Someone that is clearly not me decided that the furniture should be moved.The point is that a new paint job can do wonders for one's perspective and I think in a cost/benefit analysis of happiness it really can't be beat.
