The drywall is all up for Mike's new basement office, which means that my currently-shamblified basement study has a nice long wall that I can put bookcases against.  Instead of the wall being made OF bookcases, as previously.   I started priming last night and hopefully will finish it tonight, and maybe also will get to put part of a coat of paint up.  The guys are coming back to finish the room next week - ceiling, carpet, trim, and door installation.  They're working on a real job site right now which is why I'm doing the painting, just to keep things on track and save a little money. 

Anyway Mike's office is going to be white, but I'm painting my bookcase wall a sort of goldenrod yellow, and I'm going to take the cardboard backs off of the bookcases and attach the backless bookcases to the wall in an unbroken row, so hopefully it will look sort of like a builtin, or at least hopefully will look cool.  I'm very excited about the color I picked so I hope it all turns out like it looks in my head right now!  We shall see. I'll post pics once everything is done.

It sounds great! And I love the contrast of "wall FOR bookcases" and "wall OF bookcases." Remind me to tell you about the window architraves in my old apartment.
