The big reveal...

I cannot tell you how excited I am to reveal our new homeshcool room! When we moved in last weekend it was a horrible dark room, that I was needing to make into something livable fast. And it turned out so great that by the time we are done it may be my favorite room in the house!

Before:

Dark and not very inviting.

NOW:

Of course, when the doors are on and all of our beautiful stuff is in there (plus something extra I am cooking up style-wise) it will be even better, but it is just such a relief to have the painting finished.

Even that, however, isn't as exciting as this:

FREE crown molding for the whole room! I found it in our new kindling pile! Can you believe it? All we have to do is clean it up, sand it down, and paint it white.


I am a very happy woman today.

Wow, it really looks wonderful! It is more bright and cheerful for sure! I bet it will make the perfect homeschooling room.

Love the color too! Lucky you to find the free molding (my hubby probably would have just thrown it in the fire)
