Workroom = Finished

We finally gained some momentum on the upstairs projects after garnering some free weekends. It’s amazing what can be accomplished when you are actually home to accomplish it. That's my profound truth for the month.

The workroom is complete as far as renovations go. The hard work has been done by my judicious and industrious husband - whose will towards constructive perfection is uncanny - and now it’s up to me to bring in the furniture, decorate, accessorize and thus utilize.

The bookshelves were finished with a simple trim detail and painted white. The addition of those to the room finishes it in a way I didn’t expect and absolutely adore. 

We had decided to go with the plywood treatment for the floor and I am in love with how it turned out. Both economical and aesthetically pleasing, I was enamored from the start. There was no floor prior, and so Steve laid the plywood and added the baseboard around the room. He sealed it with a few protective coats, and then we finished off the area with a natural rug. 

We spent the better part of the night going through all of the things that had been temporarily and haphazardly tossed to the side to deal with at some later point. Later became now and it felt good to check such a large item off of our to-do list, especially before baby arrives. 

Here’s your before so you can remember how far we've come with some very simple updates.

Such a breath of fresh air.


And now the full attention can be given to the playroom. I’d say it needs some help.
