Sunday wonders - T

T is for turmoil. 

Beware the desire to renovate.  This is what happens.  We've decided to put a hardwood floor in the room where the computers live.  This is probably the most used room in the house and had the most 'stuff in it.  Bookshelves, cupboards, desks with lots of drawers - all had to move out.  To somewhere else.  Anywhere else.  Then the carpet had to be taken up.  The baseboards removed.  And the walls will be repainted this week.  The desks will walk back and forth attached to their life-giving wall sockets with the hope that we can stay connected during the upgrade.

Next Saturday, the new floor goes down.  And normality will return.  A bit tidier and no dust.

Oh my! New flooring. How exciting! And how disruptive. It makes my kitchen painting seem like nothing. Can't wait to see the new computer room when it's finished. I'm sure it will be beautiful.

Wonderful turmoil! Exciting to have a brand new room to spend time in. All the confusion will be worth it, I'm sure.

Oh, before and after pictures! I'm loving it. But this looks very neat!! That is, compared to our computer room, which is so crowded with things that it would give people nightmares if i posted it!

Ginny, normally one doesn't see the walls - or much of the floor, either!

It will be so nice when it is finished! Will we get to some hooked rugs embellishing the new floor?
