We are right on schedule. Though there's still quite a bit more to do, I feel much more at ease now that the floors are finished and there's paint on the walls. It's really coming together! Behind the scenes, my husband has been putting in a lot of late nights and I am so thankful. He definitely deserves a nice break when this is all done. All day Sunday we traded off baby and paintbrush, and today I'm sharing the progress we've made.
We traded the blue walls for a light neutral color called Soft Wool, and my sunroom looks so much brighter and happier. It's just what I was hoping for. And with the new hardwood floors, I'm now thinking of scratching all my original plans for this space and making it a dance studio instead. With some mirrors hung on the one interior wall, we could stick a fork in this room for an early Thanksgiving. Alright, maybe not, but I am already dancing in here, it's so beautiful.
We still have a good length to-do list left (not including the rest of the house we're renovating). We need to hang the interior french door and install the trim (baseboard and window and door casing) and I'm planning to paint the trim a brighter white than what we had before. We also need to clean the very dusty ceiling (another reason to dislike textured ceilings) and fix the ceiling fan. The electricians need to come back and trim the new can lights and install the switches, and that may not happen until December. Then we need to rehang all the window shades. After that it will be time to bring in the furniture and hang some art. The reveal will be the next post you see from me!
One last update: I bought this dresser over the weekend from Craigslist for $100. I'm going to use it as a media cabinet/console like I had planned on my floor plan. It's a 1968 piece with a pickled wood finish, made here in North Carolina. I'm really happy with this new piece and the price was great too!
