Last Sunday, at about noon, I decided to paint the master bedroom and ignore all other reasonable things I should have been doing. And suddenly, by 8pm, all the painting was done!
Since I really wanted to get this job done in day, I didn’t have time to test out paint samples on the walls. Instead, I did some google education, and there seems to be broad agreement in the blogging community that Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy is a fool proof navy blue. So I went with it and have no regrets!

A few weeks ago I bought two of these Nate Berkus benches/stools from Target hoping they would work in the family room. Continue reading “A Family Room Bench”
Over the next few weeks my plan is to pain the master bedroom. I’ve narrowed down the color options to either Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore or Wrought Iron by Martha Stewart.

Note this picture was from almost 2 years ago when Izzy was a wee lil puppy! Time is flying! Continue reading “To Paint the Master Bedroom? And Garden Progress”
After 10 days of living without any furniture on our main floor and a few sleep overs at my parents house, our main floor new hardwood flooring is complete! We went with Early American and I am happy with that decision. While tempting to go with a darker stain, I think this stain fits well with the style of our house and looks like a fancied up version of what could be the original flooring. UB hardwoods was A+ and I’d recommend them in a heartbeat for anyone else needing floors refinished or installed.

The crew is making more progress on the floor installation. By Friday, they had all the wood down and added samples of the different stains so we could make a final decision on the color. Yikes, I didn’t think this would be such a hard decision. I’ve seriously been dreaming about shades of brown…

The crew started on the carpet removal yesterday and already laid out some of the hardwood. I feel like our house is going to feel bigger with the main floor having consistent flooring. Continue reading “The Destruction Begins and a Garden Update”
