The master bedroom floor is finally finished! Our floor guy put the final coat of poly on Sunday morning and, after giving it a good long drying time, we can finally start moving everything back-in the room.
We went from here
and, finally, here!
I am so happy, excited and relieved. What a crazy adventure this project has been! I can finally put order to the chaos. Also, I think J and I have finally come to some sort of resolution concerning the light fixture. We had been seriously considering the Calypso light from IKEA, which is economical and somewhat period-appropriate. In fact, I was this close to going to IKEA this week and picking-up one. However, after sleeping in the living room for nearly three weeks and making use of the only ceiling fan in the house, it occurred to us both that, although usually stylistically blah, a ceiling fan might be a much better investment than a light fixture. The truth is we never use the overhead light in our bedroom but we would use a fan. Plus, I just hate looking at the boob.
The trick is finding a ceiling fan that’s both modern-looking and economical and I think we have a winner.
This Hampton Bay Florentine ceiling fan is currently selling for $99.00 on Home Depot’s website. A ceiling fan had never crossed my mind because I really don’t care for the way they usually look but boy-howdy they sure are nice on a hot sultry night. I have tried to make sure that everything we do in the house is period appropriate and aesthetic. I don’t know if this ceiling fan fits that bill but J and I agree on it, so that’s enough for me. Plus, I’m tired of looking at light fixtures and am ready to move-on to another project, so ceiling fan it is!
Finally, on a completely unrelated note, Jen from Baking Bohemian nominated me for the “Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award”. Thank you, Jen! What an awesome surprise!
Baking is one of my favorite hobbies and I love Jen’s blog. She posts the best-looking stuff, you know the sort of yummy things that make you want to lick your computer screen but you refrain because you know from past experience that saliva is really hard to clean off these new-fangled LCD’s. Yeah, it’s like that and I highly encourage you to check it out for yourself.
