Getting there.....

First off, my apologies if you are on FB and this is duplicate info.

My cork flooring was installed in my new craft room this weekend. I think I like it. It's very different and looks so much nicer in person. I love the celery green color, that's for sure. I'm just not a blue person. Green is a comfortable color for me.

Anyway, my hubby scrambled until 11 p.m. on Sat. night to get the moldings put back on and he got my armoire back in the room. I think he was going to hold off until i reminded him that my mom would be home from FL tonight and the armoire was blocking her door! :-)

Last night we brought a bunch of boxes up and I started to put things away. I just have no idea how to organize it. We brought up a 5 shelf oak bookcase from the basement because we weren't using it. I quickly filled that up. We need to redo the closet with shelves rather than the hanging rack that's there. I still have a bunch of boxes in the living room but I need to empty out a few before I can bring more up. There's not a lot of space in this room!

I decided I was really happy I didn't have carpet last night. One of my little embellishment drawers opened and all my eyelets and clips came crashing down in a heap on the floor. It was easy to scoop them up in a pile. Now I just have to sort through them!!

Here's a quick photo without the moldings. The color is not great because the sun was coming in so strong. Ahhh....another thing I love about the room.

Ooh, yeah, it's coming along! I don't know that I would ever pick that kind of flooring, but it seems perfect. I bet it's good to stand on too, forgiving?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that color, and I cannot wait to see more photos. Can't wait to hear that you've gotten more unpacked and see photos of how you have everything organized :)

And I know, most of all, you'll be so happy to have it done and be able to use it whenever you want! Your own little woman-cave, LOL!

I bet you cannot wait. I love the winder in that room!

I love the green, we used to have a green spare bedroom in my old house and I loved it! The cork flooring goes well with it.
You have been such a good blogger friend, I am sorry I have been bad at leaving comments. But I am glad you are on FB, because it seems so much easier for me to keep track of people on.

Heres to all the good stuff you will make in your new room!

Wow, what a beautiful green. I am sure it will be the perfect spot to spur your creative process. And that window...I just want to prop my children up and take pictures with all of that natural light.
