The last, major (indoor) project was the playroom…
I don’t know if you remember what it looked like,
but when we bought the house it had a paper like wallboard
in an unfinished attic space.
We framed and drywalled,
put down a cork floor,
and got this:
Then the cabinet maker (HomeWorks of AR-Dwight Johnson)
worked his magic…
You have to forgive my camera, it’s on it’s last legs!
I’m working on arranging things and touching up paint now.
The color on the walls is Urban Putty (Sherwin Williams) My go-to neutral.
I plan on making a gallery with magnetic chalkboard paint
down the hall and will post pictures when I’m done!
I don’t really like the way it looks in hall
area so probably going to change that color when I do the magnetic paint.
What color to do…
The countertops need to be re-sanded and oiled now though (I’m a messy grouter!)
We went with Cepac small subway tiles in Vintage Moss Green (I found them online for almost half of what I could get locally.) The border is Cepac mosaic tiles in Abalone. I did find them locally for a decent price, and it didn’t take much to do the border because they came in 12 x 12 squares that I cut into strips. The beautiful handmade Celtic tiles I ordered from Earth Song Tiles. They were so nice and I even sent them samples of my tiles first so they could tell me what colors would look best with them. I think the hardest part of tiling is picking the tile!
Playroom floor DONE!
We ordered cork floor from Lumber Liquidators. It was floating floor and honestly was harder to put in than we expected. Took him two days. It is beautiful though and the kids have already moved toys in even though there isn’t any furniture in there. (Now for furniture…)
