Talk About and Tackle It Tuesday: Making Rooms Complete



Over the past couple of weeks, I've been trying to do some catching up. However, it's been at home versus on my blog or even my emails (sorry folks). I finally got around to getting some curtains hung in the living room. It looks so much better in there. They aren't the most expensive valances but they complete the room. It should have taken three but I made do with 2.

AfterWe also spent some time working on the family room that I painted a few months back. We didn't have seating out there. We now have a futon. I even put the train table back together so it could get some use before my youngest son out grows it. The treadmill finally got moved out of the family room and into the workout area in the garage. Now I need to work on the computer area which is in the same room. We'll see if I can accomplish that before next week.

After
Besides working on the house and finishing rooms up, I've been doing a lot of volunteering. This is one area that I didn't do a lot with when I was working full-time. I hope to be able to continue volunteering when I find full-time employment (or even a part-time job).

I like the valance...it completes the window. Good job.

I like the color on your walls. I'm thinking of painting my living room the same color.

That looks nice! Can you tell me the color of your walls? I'd like to use a similar color when I paint our new house.

Stephanie - The family room color is milk chocolate. I can't find the paint can from the living room to see what that color is...if I find it, I'll let you know though.
