Dust and More Dust



Wow! It's been awhile between posts, but I'm sure you can see why. The bamboo floors are in (wahoo!) and they do look fabulous! We spent a two day marathon painting the living room, family room, kitchen and hall (thanks, Darcy!) and I finished the baseboards eight hours before the installers arrived Tuesday morning. The kids camped out in my bedroom with the dvd player, and I shuttled back and forth between them and my computer work station in the kitchen via the backyard all morning and afternoon. The dust actually wasn't too bad, the installers were great, and by 4:00 the house was done. Words cannot express how thrilled I am to have that HORRIBLE carpet gone!
Doesn't Matt's painting look great with the new floors? He hung it right away because he said he wanted to see what it would look like in a gallery (wink). I'd buy it. Now for the flip side; the floors and walls look like new, which made some of the furniture look really old. Out went the red couch, hello Crate and Barrel! We're looking into replacing the bedroom carpets, worked on the backyard today, are starting to talk about the kitchen... will it never end? Honestly, as much as I love working on the house, its really cut into my art time. I keep looking at my table longingly. It's just been too many days away. I don't want to paint a door, I want to paint a picture!

  2. Gorgeous! I hate our old dingy white carpeting, too. First we paint (everything in our new place is BEIGE, ugh)...then floors next spring.
