Happy Halloween, y’all! I’m trick-or-treating tonight as Awkward, Gangly, Tall, Hairy Girl–how about you? (I had all the dates in high school, by the way.)
If all those boy snubs could see me now! I think they would be jealous of my husband and the stripes that I laid down for him in his basement lounge. Maybe. Let’s just say that hair removal is still on the payroll.
This space is officially outside of the guest room, but I’m going ahead and dropping it in here for the One Room Challenge because the door there opens up to the guest room where you can see the FINISHED(!) concrete floors, which will cure for a week or so before I move furniture back in.I took this photo above before I applied the first coat of sealer in the rest of the basement this morning. Two more coats and I will be done with the nightmare floors here. But I am happy with how the floors ultimately turned out:
The rug arrived yesterday: color and pattern work. But! I realized after I ordered it that the bed has side rails that hit the floor the full perimeter of the bed, which means that it can’t sit half on, half off on the rug. So this rug may go in the TV lounge.
The bed is now at the powder coating shop getting her red dress on. I can’t wait to see it! It was a difficult decision, but I went with the Ruby Red below.
Next up: deciding on a mural idea for the bed wall. Abstract pattern or scene or, my weakness, a floral pattern? I’ll play around with it next week. I really hope to finish the mural and another piece of art before Thanksgiving…will it happen?? Don’t forget to check out the other One Room Challenge participants. See you, until next time, on Instagram!
