I decided I'm going to go with the next shade up on the chart for the lower color. I think that's going to be closer to what I had in mind and what I saw on my screen since the black color looks a bit lighter on the screen. I'll paint (or not paint) the wall behind my headboard last to see how that looks with the other walls being blue. If I leave it gray and don't like it it'll be easy to change later.

I bought the paint and got the room painted today. I used Glidden Blue-Grey Slate as the top color and Behr Evening Hush as the bottom color. Sorry for the crappy pics, I should have used my DSLR for this part.

I had to take the shelf down. I forgot how heavy that thing is.


I painted the top first and then did the bottom. I took these two photos after I got the top done.



Painting the bottom





I cut a couple holes in the wall to run an extension cord from under my desk up to the LED controller. So glad I don't have to use that conduit anymore. I don't know why the color ended up looking blue in the second photo.





I still have a little more painting to do tomorrow. I have to finish painting around the window and do some touch-up. If I have time I might go get some wood to make the molding but first I need to figure out why I have an oversized wall plate on my switch. I know there was a reason we had to put one on there but I didn't think about it when I had it off today. It's going to get in the way of the molding as it is. I'm planning to finish the doors and keyboard drawers in the morning and once that's done the desk will be finished (I think).

Edit:
Here's a better photo. The colors should be more accurate in this one.

Haha I knew someone would say that. I actually do have a lot of touch up to do.


The desk is done, I just haven't had a chance to take photos and post them yet. I should have time tonight.

Here's the finished desk. The differences don't stand out too much from the last set though.





The doors were going back too far when I closed them so I put in some really ghetto looking stops. I might change them eventually but they work for now.


I moved my pictures to this wall. Should I keep the photos and make some frames out of poplar or get some lighter photos or just leave it alone?


Sorry about the photo quality; evidently it's too dark in here now to use my phone to take pictures.

I don't know if I mentioned it before but I wanted to build a computer into the desk somewhere (though I have no idea where I'll be able to fit it) using some spare hardware I had laying around. We're re-doing the office at work and there was an old maybe late 90's PC there that we were going to get rid of so I took it to get the motherboard tray out of it. It's got a 366MHz Intel Celeron, 96MB RAM, a 6GB IDE hard drive, and some sort of AGP ATI Rage graphics card.

Here's the beast:


You can tell it's really powerful because of this massive heatsink:


The carnage


I drilled out the rivets and got the motherboard tray out of the case


Bringing the computer into the 21st century. 1.83 GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB RAM, and a 9800 GT.



I also saved the power/reset buttons, power/HDD LED, and the speaker. I would have examined the hardware a little more but it's all covered in a mixture of dust and cigarette tar and I didn't want to get that all over me. If I can't find a place to put it in the desk maybe I'll do a scratch build using the leftover wood.

The molding is installed and painted. I'll post pics later. I bought wood to make molding for the top of the shelf but cut the long piece too short so that's gonna have to wait a while. Also, the computer in the desk idea is out. I'll save the motherboard tray for when I do a PowerMac G5 case conversion.

I bought "general purpose" 1/2"x1.5" primed pine molding at Home Depot this morning because that was the best thing I could find for this. I routed both edges using the same router bit I used for the front edge of the desk. A router table would have been much better for this and would have produced a much better final product but it didn't turn out too bad considering I don't have the right tools for the job.






This photo is from after I painted.



Some photos I took with the DSLR. I should have used the tripod for the middle two. Sorry for the blurry photos. As you can see I swapped the dresser for the bookcase. It takes up less room and contrasts the wall colors better.





I ordered some stuff earlier but I'll keep it a secret for now.
