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.]]
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.
