In this picture we have replaced the subflooring and I was given the job of tearing off the existing molding, which I really got into....
apparently too much because I had the crowbar turned backwards and was putting these beautiful holes around the bottom! Oh well, still had fun taking some aggression out on those bad boys.
Here is the bad blogger part, I forgot to take pictures of the next step except during another project I was working on. But here you can see with the help of my beautiful Vanna White-esque assistant, Emma, that we put beaded board up around the perimeter of the room to chair rail heigth and new solid wood baseboard.
This is another angle with me working on the other project, but you can kinda tell how everything is coming together.
Anyhow, I am stuck right now on a color scheme for the room. Above the chair rail is currently painted a soft yellow, but I want to go for something with a little more impact. I also am going to try my hand at painting our builder grade cabinets into a distressed blue color, but we'll have to see how that turns out!
In the meantime, here is a random picture that I took when I was walking through the kids' playroom the other day. I admit that I have a slight case of OCD, but now I am starting to think that it runs in the family. Here's Riley's creating:
Notice how everything is lined up from smallest to largest. Now if I could just teach him how to paint!!!
