This post will showcase the progress and transformation of the living room, hallways and bedroom. Stay tuned for kitchen and bathroom progress coming soon. As I mentioned in the previous post, I hired Green Apple DC to do the painting. And as you can see below, they did an amazing job. From scheduling to preparing and clean up, the process was so organized and tidy. My new apartment is in an old building so some of the walls were not in the greatest condition to begin with but Green Apple DC did excellent prep work from sanding to taping beforehand so the paint would adhere seamlessly on the walls.
All of the walls got 2+ coats and they even offered to paint all of my light switch covers so they would blend in with the walls, which is a big plus in my book. The perimeter on both the ceiling and trim was perfectly straight and not a drop of paint seen anywhere. I was at work while the painting took place but the painters definitely kept everything clean and drip free 🙂
I had the painters continue with the grey into the hallways leading to the bedroom but wanted a clean and serene white for the bedroom. It turned out wonderful and I love the slight contrast with the doors, ceiling and trim. And no surprise, the painting in this space was just as flawless as the living room! Amidst the moving and furniture arranging chaos, the walls still look so fresh and new. Lastly, here’s a quick sneak peek at the bathroom. It’s black and so fantastic.
As I mentioned earlier, if you’re in the DC area, you should definitely check out Green Apple DC for your painting needs. I would have never been able to do it myself (nor could I even come close to doing such an excellent job) and the end result looks wonderful.

Stay tuned for more apartment progress, bathroom and kitchen painting reveal and much more over the next couple weeks!
