The reason for my absence

Living in a 1940's house, constant house projects are just a fact of life. Sometimes I don't even recognize the old pictures of our house before we bought it; we've changed it that much. This latest project was kind of a biggie. We re-taped and mudded our master bedroom. Following that, we painted and ripped up all the carpet. Then, laminate flooring was laid and trim was applied. It took a good two weeks of work to finally complete it, but I am happy to say that today, I have no house project agenda (minus the fun stuff, like finding accessories). And, the only place in our house with carpeting is the stairs. Not too shabby, not too shabby at all.

Taping, mudding, and sanding phase
(aka my least favorite phase)

Wha la! New flooring, new paint, and new closet door! 
The wall color is distorted here, but it's the lightest shade of 
robin's egg blue. 

The only thing needed now is accessories... the fun part!
