And you will notice that the two most important things have already found their place.
The desk and computer.
And the green putting mat/carpet. LOL!
Boy, has this been a LONG process! We started in MAY--((Yes, it’s really been that long..this is what happens when it’s a mostly do-it-yourself home renovation!))
While I was gone to Kansas, I’d get updates on how the floor installation was going.
It looks SO good! I really like the color we chose too. Not too light, not too dark..it’s a pergo called Yorkshire Oak.
Saturday, after our Denny’s run for breakfast, and our Lowes run for more “STUFF”, it became a trim painting day. My job was to tape off the windows and start painting trim. Boy, this just does NOT look like the same room as it used to!
We turned the music up loud on the 70’s channel…
Here’s a funny little “Instagram” I took with my phone….
There are a couple things left to finish. The windows all need new plantation blinds. So does the door that leads to the storage room. I think in the top pic above you can see that it is an old metal blind that is all bent to heck. Haven’t been in a rush with that. It hides a multitude of junk that is IN that storage room!
Oh, and one thing we did….all the windows used to have that crossed window paning making it look like there were several panes of glass, you know what kind I’m talking about? We removed ALL those dividers and I can’t believe what a difference it made with actually being able to see OUT the window without lines of molding going across my field of vision. I like BIG VIEWS…not staring through small squares all divided, know what I mean?
All the windows and doors in the house used to have that small pane look. NO MORE! Open it up! We are also removing the divider things on the door to the storage room. It also sure makes the windows easier to clean when you don’t have a wipe down a bunch of smaller panes.
I'm even considering removing those divider thingies from the french doors that go from the dining room to the sunroom. Can they still be called french doors if they DON'T have those dividers? Well why not? Again, that would make it so much easier to clean!
Cleaning windows? What am I thinking?! I don’t do that, do I?
