Anyway, I left you with the new floor install, promising to come back and share the final reveal. Here's the photo I shared of the floors going in:
And here's an after - Bruce jumped in and helped paint the molding so I was able to put the living and dining rooms back together:
It was nice having the spaces empty and being able to reset everything. I rather enjoyed it being pared down so I decided to keep my spaces less cluttered looking.
One area I purged was the bookshelves - and restyled with a summer look.
But I got that sand home and put it in a vial to add to the rest! I love how different they all are.
I hung several pieces of my artwork on the walls also. A small rug in front of the French doors (I found it rolled up in the entryway closet...totally forgot I had it) finishes off the dining room.
In the living room, my dad's old toy chest is used as a coffee table. This is one surface I'm constantly battling to keep clean.
A metal basket is handy to corral all the remotes, some playing cards and coasters.
A small demilune table from Bombay Co. (remember them?) got moved from the master bedroom hallway to beside the fireplace. Another lamp adds a soft glow to this area as well.
The cabinet above it was made by my dad and holds an assortment of treasures...I'm hoping to find a good spot at the farm for this.
I've tried to keep surfaces uncluttered as I'm tired of all the stuff. With the new floors, everything looks just wonderful.
So that's my new floors. I want to thank everyone for their kind comments on my last post. I appreciate your kindness more than I can say. Y'all are the best!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have more flowers to go cut out.
