Who Knew...


...That having floors go from this...

... to this...

... could bring so much happiness to this...



ahhhh yes - even though we can't put things on it yet, and our house is in complete disarray with all of the furniture displaced, and we are all getting a little loopy from inhaling all of the varnish, I do have to say, I find myself just standing in the doorway and sighing that sigh of nesting nirvana - I can actually put the baby on the floor without wondering what 50 year old germs will find their way into her little body... 

... oh, and this also gives a good snap shot of the newly painted walls and trim :).  For the full effect of the 'before' you need to picture in your mind a kind of mustardy-yellow with a pea-green undertone color EVERYWHERE.  From that to a cool cream and chocolaty brown (the official name is creme broule[sp?] how fun is that name?! )  that I blatently stole from Marissa's walls (thanks again for letting me totally copy your amazing style, Marissa!!). 
 Ahhhh, I think this may just be my new favorite room in the house :).


...Now if I could just somehow twinkle my nose and have all of the furniture restored to it's original position...

Not only are the floors and walls stunning, I love seeing the flowers out the window in the flower boxes on the shelves Dad built for you a few summers ago.
A facelift for a home does wonders for the soul.
Love, Mom

It looks beautiful! I would just stare at that room too! It's so pretty! The wall color is awesome too! Love it! Loved the side walk weeding too! Great idea before the snow comes! You have taken the meaning of nesting to a whole new level! I thought I was crazy when I nested, but I think you officially beat me! ;) Wish we lived closer!

Oh, so gorgeous! Wow! It can bring cheer to you just walking through the room. Hopefully, you will soon be able to take a deep (clean) breath...
