The tile work for our
As for the master bedroom... the paint is on the walls.... the crown molding and window trim is up too...
the room still needs flooring, paint around the windows and the doors installed to both the bedroom itself and the bathroom... but we can actually sleep in our bed now (as long as you don't mind all the construction stuff and drywall dust).
I am also in the middle of re-doing this dresser to go into the space. It's a big heavy Ethan Allen dresser that my mother found at GoodWill and I am painting white to match the cottage/beachy feel that we are trying to (ever so slowly) create for our Master Bed/Bath retreat. I am also painting an entertainment cabinet of sorts that will temporarily be in the space to hold our television and serve as extra storage until we can find just the right piece to replace it... There are also wooden shelves to be painted for a kind of king size headboard thingie I am working on...as well as more sanding and some closet planning that I need to get done.... but, it is finally starting to come together... I think :-)
Because Mr. Runs With Scraps has been working extra hours each and every week on his real job and thus has had no real time to devote to this project, we've actually hired a young man who has been working with me to move things forward. Paying for labor is certainly using up some of the budget...but it also has moved the project along. Josiah (the guy we've hired to assist) has also provided some much-needed comic relief for me in the last few days... that alone is worth the money! :-)
