A few weeks ago… wait scratch that… a month and a half ago, I posted that we had started the makeover of the room we call the game room. You may remember I told you that it didn’t have a door and we were going to add a new one. Along with that, we were also going to remove the center ceiling light, paint the ceiling fans, walls and add new flooring.
Well… we got the door stained and hung, but we are still waiting for the doorknob that will match the rest of the ones I replaced in the house to be delivered. It is on backorder.
The door we used is the pocket door in this photo that we no longer needed when we opened up the wall between the kitchen and living room. All it needed was stain, hinges and a doorknob.
Back to the game room… We got the walls and trim painted….
…along with the ceiling fans and removed the center ceiling fixture.
We got all of that done weeks ago, all except for the flooring. As with the doorknob, we have been on hold waiting for the flooring to be delivered.
I am happy to be able to say…. “today it finally arrived!!!” It was being held up when the initial trucking company went out of business and our flooring sat in wait for a new company to go get it and then deliver it to us.
As soon as it was delivered, I opened up one box to make sure it was what I ordered. It is! :-)
Now we can get the room done over the next few days, just in time to host a houseful of guests for pre-wedding festivities. If you missed the post where I mentioned my oldest is getting married in 3 weeks, she is, not at the house, but near Charlottesville, VA. Life is going to get a little busy for me over the next few weeks.
While we were waiting for the flooring, we did get other work done, but again we were put on hold by all the rain. In a way I am glad it rained since it stopped me from painting. I got a new idea after we removed more of the shrubs in the front of the house. Many of you gave me great ideas on what to plant and I am considering each one. The new idea is totally different from my initial thoughts for the exterior. I have to do some more research, but once I do, I will share it with you.
