Wordful Wednesday-more of the new house

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can't seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you'd like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to "capture" my 7 Clown Circus button on the left or simply hyperlink to my site, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!

BEFORE

AFTER

New baseboards, wainscotting, window trim, carpet, lighting, closet doors (and closet organizers). Oh, and new paint. I think Garrett is one lucky kid. This is one of my favorite rooms in the whole house. Possibly because it's actually done (we just have to move him in), but mostly because it just looks nice. And I SO love the brown. My husband is a woodworking genius. For real.

Angie,

It's looking great. I have one of those husbands too (by profession) and he is doing the same in our house in which we just moved into. Living amongst the construction is tough, but when you get results like that, it's well worth it.

You all did a beautiful job with the redesigning of this room! The addition of the wainscotting, baseboards, window trim etc. really does a lot. It all gives the room such a unique and complete look unlike any other addition. The color scheme too is great! Great work! Thanks for sharing!

Amy said...

I like the after much better. :)

Live.Love.Eat said...

I love the before and after. I am not sure what wainscotting is but it looks awesome! Is it the brown beadboard type thing? Love it!!!
