Pheww, Getting Back to Some Semblance of Order

September 8th, 2019 at 02:29 pm

Hey! I actually can cross off an item that's been on my goals list for years. Our painters have come and gone (with a chunk of cash), and we really love the look of the family room. It's an interesting room; it started life as an attached double garage which the previous owners transformed into a large family room with cedar wainscoting and a knotty pine ceiling and exposed beams.

It's always been the center of our family life but the berber carpet was awful and the wood was just too darn dark. So while we've left the beams their original wood, the ceiling and wainscoting are white and the walls are a sort of duck egg blue. We've moved most of the furniture back in and are re shelving books, attaching new switch plate covers and trying to decide which furniture and artwork will stay and what will go.

It looks so fresh. I'm so happy to have it done.

In other news, I edited a thesis early in the week and am awaiting payment. Classes are going full speed, and now the planning for spring scheduling begins. Tomorrow night DD and I are off to a class on writing college essays. So much happening so it's especially good to feel a bit more organized.

    Your new room sounds inviting. Like the color choices. When we moved into this house, the previous owner took pine boards to make wainscoting and let's just say, it left a lot to be desired. Four coats of paint (two primer, two paint color) and it made them look better. I'm sure your room feels new and refreshed to you. Bravo!

    We did replace the flooring with LVP. I like it a lot!
