Dining Room is Finally Done!

September 25, 2010

Design and Decor, interior work

We’re in!


In one final blitz of a day, we finished painting, finished installing the baseboard trim, cleaned up the furniture, and moved things back in. As soon as we got the entertainment center in, the boys set up their Playstation console.

Glory to God, it is MAGNIFICENT having a dining room back again. I got sick and tired of eating in the garage with the bats and bugs!

We’ve spent the weekend working on the living room– giving it a new coat of fresh paint, FINALLY installing the trim and baseboards after 3 years… cleaning out all the plaster dust that just wouldn’t go away with *normal* cleaning… and rearranging the furniture. I have been without a real, organized desk for about four months now, and it was starting to wear on me. Because I work from home, a messy desk is a hardship for my work. So while I don’t need a super-quiet room, it must be organized and neat. Otherwise, I’m fussing with things, trying to clean it up and not doing my writing jobs!

The end of this renovation is near. Thank God!

And I PROMISE I’ll have more photos of Livvy. We’re back with the camera, and I took some real cute ones. Thanks for cheering us on during this tough time. You guys are the BEST. 🙂

    WOO HOO!!!! OMG, it looks so beautiful!! So sharp and classy – just lovely! I wish you many happy meals and blessings in that room, and may God bless you for all that hard work and money saved by doing it yourselves! Kinda cracks me up that the first thing your kids do is hook up the video games, LOL. But hey – they have worked really HARD and should have some well deserved “play time”!! 🙂
