We are making some progress in my office renovation….
The hardwood floor and crown molding is installed
and the room is painted!
I mentioned this room was once an office when we first moved in. It was never fully decorated. I had a desk and bookcase from Bombay Company and the walls were still builder white. At that time, it was a purely functional place to keep my things. Then it became a playroom, turned dog-crate room. But as you can see, it is now on its way back to becoming my office!
Here is how the room looked
after we cleared out most of the playroom furniture
in preparation for my darling doggie’s arrival!
I have no idea why I cannot find a picture of the room with furniture.
Maybe I never took any pictures of it.
What’s wrong with me?
This was all the furniture left when we started using the room for the dog. Anyway, as you can see, it was a colorful room. The walls were painted Philadelphia Cream by Benjamin Moore. And yes, I had white carpeting… (obviously, not the best choice for a kids’ playroom – or a dog!)
The kids dented up the walls with their toys but the carpet wasn’t in terrible shape.
Then the puppy arrived and took over the room…
Oh, I miss that puppy fluffiness!
If you want a cute puppy fix – watch this video of Rosie’s first day with us.
You might have noticed she squatted on the rug
right at the end. Yeah, we needed to replace that carpet!
But for more reasons than one…
Last summer she got a little rambunctious!
Although it was a mess,
I thanked her for forcing us to change that carpeting!
So, this is how the room looks right now.
I chose hickory for the floors
because of the hardness and the variation in color.
I figured with kids and a dog, the floors might get a little beaten up.
This way the dents and scratches won’t show as much…hopefully!
I wanted to keep the walls light.
Originally I wanted a gray tone but ended up with
Bone White by Benjamin Moore.
I love how the floors look with the wall color.
Here is a close up of the floor.
It’s from the Character Collection of Somerset Floors.
The color is Hickory Saddle.
Now I am in the process of choosing furniture.
No final decisions yet but I am getting there!
Are you working on any rooms now?
