Finally!

I'm back in my room.
Just two months later.
Or 2-1/2.
But, who's counting?

It is so nice not to be sleeping 1 and 1/2 feet off the floor anymore.

The closet is not completely done and my shelves for the wall have not been built.
But it's all good!

 Not too bad for a DIY job! Took three coats when it was supposed to be one, two at most since it has built in primer.
 I know. I didn't paint the inside of the closet. After painting the walls, I just didn't care about a space no one will see but me.
 Nice moulding around the windows, wouldn't you say?
 The TV went up as soon as the paint was done so it wouldn't be sitting around on the floor.
I didn't do such a bad job on the floor.

Now, life can get back to some sense of normalcy.
I hope.

  1. Yay! Glad you got your room back. Don't worry about the lack of paint in your closet. That way you can always find the wall studs to hang rods or shelves!

    1. Thank you! My husband did the moulding. I bet if you gave him a free trip to Canada he'd be there in a heartbeat.

  4. Congrats, Ruth. I'm wishing you a great sleep!

    That's a lovely paint colour - what's it called? And your floor is awesome - well done, girl!
    Gosh, it's hard to believe it's been two and a half months. I'm glad you finished it before the cold weather really settles in.

    Thanks for sharing these, Jenny

    1. The color is peach butter. I could picture the color I wanted in my head and than I found it. I had my doubts when I started painting though. As the lighting in the room changed with the sun, it looked different so I worried a little.
      I think the floor could have done with a few more coats. I did four and made do.
      Thanks!

  6. Congratulations! I'm jealous. I'm staring into the abyss of DIY projects and contractors myself. I have a LOT of things to be done. For example, see the inside of your closet? That's what my whole garage looks like. Gonna have to paint that. New sink/vanity and tile in the bathroom. That's me. A completely new kitchen? Thousands of dollars of supplies and labor (I don't think I'm up for THAT). But, I guess that's what you do when you have two kinds in college.

    1. One of these days I'll have to do my kitchen too.
      You should put your kids to work on breaks.

  9. Love the colour and by the time you have your clothes hanging in the closet you wont notice the walls aren't painted.
