Wood Floors in the guest room

~Hi Friends~

We had a good amount of rain come through, the air is crisp, the skies are blue and the weekend is here!

There is a little something I didn’t share with you…oops. When we had our master bedroom floors put in we had the floors in the guest room replaced as well.  The carpet was pretty nasty, being 12 years old. Instead of new carpet we decided to install the same wood  that is throughout the first floor.  It was pretty comical around the house that week, no beds for us to sleep in so we put the mattress on the dinning room floor which of course turned into a huge trampoline for the kids.

OK onto some updated pictures

Sophie seriously follows me everywhere.

My husband’s handy work, I love crown!

When our family stays with us it is usually anywhere from a week to a month so when the kids are driving them bonkers they can shut the door and watch the tube.

Before, bye bye carpet!

~Hope your weekend is fabulous~

Foyer reveal

Happy Weekend Friends!
I only lost one post while blogger was down so I feel pretty fortunate.
I’ve been trying to put off showing you the finished foyer until all the painting was done, but I’ve come to realize it’s a huge job that could take forever.  Considering it took 2 years to complete the stairs and 5 years to complete the kitchen……
I took down the signs I made by the front door and added the vintage mirrors I found while antiquing last year.
I purchased the wire basket at an antique store while in Tahoe and my husband put the crown molding up.
The antique mirror was also purchased in Tahoe, this is in a niche to the right as you walk in.


Decorating a open floor plan can be so challenging at times.  Adding wood to the stairs definitely helped pull the whole space together!

The Light is from CSN, it replaced a recessed light, much more glamorous!

Thanks for stopping in, have a fabulous weekend!
