One small corner of my house is done

After several days, I have finally finished painting this one spare bedroom. The walls look like chocolate ice cream, and every time I'm in there I want to lick them. The baseboards and doors look like vanilla ice cream, and I would want to lick them, too, if not for all the chocolate.

OK, here are the before pics:


And the after pics:

At the last minute, I decided to paint the ugly assemble-yourself bookshelves that were an ugly fake-wood brown. It was too close to the wall color and I thought this would stand out a bit. It was a huge pain, and I did a really bad job of it. You can't tell in the picture, but the fronts of the shelves have horrible spots where I peeled them from the plastic and there were globs of paint they had been sitting in.

Notice its sidekick, the green lamp, is gone. Gone, gone, gone.
