First Room Done (pretty much)

This room has actually been done for a few days.  My excuse is the same one, remembering to get pics at a good time of day.  I don't know that is a good excuse or not.  I guess if I was a great photographer, it wouldn't really matter what time of day.

First a reminder--

All woodwork in the music room was this color and this was the wall color, although, in these pics, it looks lighter than it was.  You can see why I have doors on the lower shelves ;) I tried to go back through some old photos to find a pic of the carpeting, but you are just going to have to take my word for the it, that it was BEIGE.

And now...
 So here is the first sign that I am a terrible photographer...shadows!  But you can see my white trim, the new gorgeous floor and the new rug (yes, it was too loud in here, so we had to have one!)

 Don't look to closely or you will see that we need quarter-round under the book case.  Haven't decided yet whether we will do the whole room with it, or just that spot.
 I purposely avoided including the boxes of books and frames pictures that are sitting in the room.  But they are there-- 3 of them!  Going to try to wait out the entire 30 days for my paint to cure before putting things back on the shelves.  Bad experiences in the past with things sticking.
Good shot of my wall color-- which btw, is Toll Booth from Valspar, if you were curious.

Hubs is hard at work on the next section of flooring.  I have actually completed my next portion of woodwork.  Next big decision-- are we (meaning him) painting the ceilings?




  1. The pictures are nice but don't do it justice to seeing it in person. Great Job!!!

  2. It looks just lovely, Ronda. I like the old buffet in there. The rug is pretty too.

  3. I was on Miss Mustard Seed blog reading comments about her new flooring and came across your blog. I have been looking at the same flooring for my living room. I came home with a sample and it seems a tad bit reddish. In the photos in your blog and Marion's the flooring doesn't look reddish but light in some photos and dark in others. Question: are the planks different colors of stain? Of course, I am fretting over the durability as I have 6 grandkids who visit often. That is the whole reason of removing the light colored carpet. I do not want to make the wrong decision on flooring so I gotta love it the first time around, lol. Thanks!

  4. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to
    let you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks
