I have been targetting my living room for the longest time. And since I have been playing with small pieces of wood for several weeks now, my cash situation has recovered and I had the money to invest in my wood floor. This room is where the dominos will start to fall in rapid succession. You see, I own the furniture I will upholster for that room. I own the fabric I will upholster than furniture in. Getting that stuff upholstered get’s it out of my garage and gives me room to work. With room to work, I can build this bedframe, that bookcase, this dresser and that entryway table. Once again, I own about 90% of the materials I need for those projects and all of the tools (I hope)
My plans, Lay the wood floor first. Add trim, it’s the same stuff I used in the hall and bedroom photos. I will use the same custom door casing for the thresholds.
Next, get some furniture in there.
Next do the fireplace after the rest of the house is done and add some nice ceiling lighting.
I have got to get the house looking nice before my son’s high school graduation and I have yet to touch the master bedroom, my office or the bathrooms. The exterior? Oh man. I’ve got some hardy board to install, trim and soffets to replace, and a bazillion miles of painting to do. And then the landscape? You get the picture.
Tonight, I pushed over that domino and began demo. The walls are already painted so that’s not part of this mission.
I wish I had a place to put all this stuff but, I need space!!
I have to lay the flooring in 2 halves. My son and I accomplished our mission tonight. Get that nasty old capet out to the curb for bulk trash pickup. Yehaa!!
