After: (I have to apologize for the darkness of these photos -- it looks better without the flash but it is a fairly dark hallway, with its one window shaded by the One Big Tree)
(How do you like that glimpse of the Pepto-Bismol Bathroom there at the top? I assure you that the decoration of that bathroom is the reason we bought the house.)
We removed the odd bits of furniture left behind and the excess handrails (the ones mounted to the walls), patched all of the cracks in the plaster (mostly occuring around the said handrails), painted everything light sage green, and hung most of our large collection of family photos/memorabilia. You might recognize some of the pictures from our apartment. They are large and difficult to move but they'd be the things we'd grab, were there a fire and we could only take a few things.
