My library

Nothing feels better than accomplishing something – especially something that has been in the works for awhile.

When we bought our 3 bedroom house this summer, the last thing on our mind was remodeling the third bedroom.  Well, we had thought about it.  We dreamed of having a “quiet room” where we could set up our library, and where I dreamed of meditating or doing yoga without the pets bothering me.

About a month ago, we completed the painting.  The color of the walls are called “jam session” so it’s a purplish color.  Just before we got the flu, we put in our own carpeting.  We bought padded carpet from Menard’s, the double-sided carpet tape, and a carpet cutter.  My DH was in charge of measuring and cutting, and I was in charge of putting down the double-sided sticky tape.  It actually wasn’t a huge feat to do the carpet.

[[Lapse in time to get the flu and recover.]]  :P

Today, we got finished trim from Menard’s, cut it, and nailed it with borrowed tools from my brother-in-law.  DH and I also put in all new outlets (because I accidentally painted them half purple) and a new light switch.  Once the floor was vacuumed, we moved the bookshelf upstairs and I organized all of the books into categories before putting them away.

Once I unplug myself from this laptop, I will go into the new library and read before bed. :)
