Relief At Last

Our lives are finally coming back around to normal.  Not that I know what normal is given what's been going on the last few months.  After the wall was fixed, we saw that there was water damage on the floor.

My father-in-law came over, ripped out the subfloor, and he and *B* replaced it.  I'm so thankful that I have such a handy family!

We decided that, since we needed new carpet anyway, we'd paint the room any color we'd like.  My mom suggested a brilliant idea - a focus wall.  We agreed on green, but we were very nervous when I first got it on the wall.

Because our room was originally bright (read: neon) yellow, the green looked absolutely gray.  I persevered though, and I'm so pleased how it turned out, especially with the gorgeous carpet we had installed:

We wasted no time in getting things put back.

Evie supervised :o)

 In the end, I think it turned out pretty well.  

The picture doesn't do it justice.  It reminds me of a spa - so clean and peaceful.  Given the awful beginning, we need the rest!


  1. Yay! Your new room is beautiful. It's hard how paint looks so different until the room is done. I've had that happen before to. I'm so glad you have a nice relaxing place to be now.

  2. We've just recently got a new king sized KingKoil chiropratic 'firm' bed, leather head board and new bedside tables. It took me about 2 weeks to feel really comfortable in it but now I love it and sleep like a rock.
    I feel the same way when I hop into it each night - like I'm in a nice hotel room. Our room is now complete.

    I think your green is definitely a nice improvement on the neon yellow!
