Bedroom Renovation Progress

As you may have seen in my earlier post, the metal baseboard heat covers have now been refinished.  An attempt was made to put up the ceiling fan, but although my husband thought he had changed out the bracket already, he hadn’t.  Due to this, work is limited to the daylight hours right now, since he had already removed the old light fixture.  This is not a big deal because I am participating in a Glidden/Walmart blogger program, to makeover my daughter’s playroom.  I have plenty to do.

We have a hurricane coming this weekend, so I doubt much will get done over the the next few days.  Hopefully my flooring will come in for the playroom, so I can get that down.  I had thought about doing that brown paper bag floor design for the playroom. I would like to get that project squared away before putting leveler down to prep the bedroom floor for laminate.

I have been stashing things aside for this room for a few years.  This wall mounted bust is something I got from my mother, she had it hanging in her parlour for many years.
