Home Improvements

30 Sep

In an attempt to not go crazy, I starting ripping out the carpet in my house last week.  In my defense, I have hated the carpet since we moved in in 2001 and half the house was already free of it.  So a concrete staining strategy is in the works.  But if everything is already out of the living room, I can’t stop at the floors.  Cole was nice enough to tape up all the paint swatches selected by members of the family–Todd and I seem to agree on something called upper east side which makes me laugh.  Owen chose a magenta shade and doesn’t understand why it isn’t a top contender.

But the most exciting part (new blinds come close) is the accent wall.  There’s a 30 inch wide wall that juts out in the living room–I think the hall closet is the purpose–and we’ve considered a lot of things for it.  Todd was leaning toward some kind of stone.  But I have a different idea.  Thoughts?

This is a floor, but the close-up was what I wanted you to see.
