I've painted the wall and baseboards of one wall and will move onto the next in just a little while. I don't normally use a drop cloth either...that usually doesn't work in my favor.
It looks a little plain for now, but when the beadboard & crown molding are up I think it will be more interesting & give this little room a pop.
My mom framed this for me and gave it to me when I was going through a really rough time in my life. I repainted the frame for this room. I love what it says:
Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas,
dive deep, and swim far,
so you shall come back with self-respect,
with new power,
with an advanced experience,
that shall explain and overlook the old.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Thanks for coming by...I have to get to work now (the one that pays the bills).
