Excited beyond belief

So excited. It is really going well. My husband was wore out last night, but he has the outside edge of the room and the closet to do yet. We tore carpet out yesterday and he got this far over the course of the day. The dark blue carpet was depressing to me so this has lightened up the room and I think it was a very good choice. 

The sewing desk and this chest of drawers have changed walls in this room. It opens up the room more and makes a better floor pattern for me anyway. We finally got the wire fished back up through the floor and it is all hooked back up. That was the worst thing that happened yesterday.

As he is going he is putting the quarter round down so that wall is complete. This is the last of the uncovered floor that goes into the closet.

I just can't hardly wait until it is done. We have some wall repair to do, but that won't take long. We had some heavy counter tops in the room and they scarred the walls. But eventually the walls will get painted also. I have so much to place back in the room and get sorted through.

I am sure lots will get sorted completely out of the room and out of the house. I have a lot of leftover batting pieces that need pieced together and almost 30 quilts that need quilting.

The window still needs trim work to get it completely done. I got to thinking this morning every room in my house has had something done to it since last September. All had windows and one bathroom had a skylight. All main rooms have had carpeting or flooring and then the trim on all the windows and the wallpaper in the kitchen.

I learned one thing I will never tackle every room again at one time. It is overwhelming.  The nice thing it will eventually be done for awhile.

It is suppose to rain again today so I have some errands to do away from the house today and that will take about an hours. So after businesses open I will get that done and be home to do some more work. Chris
