Problems with blogger & a sneak peek at my Diningroom makeover anyone else having problems leaving commments again? I hate when that happens.

Here's a sneak peek at what I've been up to. Yes another project at the Ickes homestead. The Diningroom which used to be a bedroom when we first moved in some 19 years ago. I fell in love with this fabric and made curtains out of it.

This is what I discovered under the carpet. Love it! The carpeting will be coming up soon, but hubby wants to do crown molding so I'm not arguing with him. Then the floor will have to be refinished. Can not wait!

My paint color I chose is Valspar...Woodrow Wilson Putty. Got rid of the ugly green. If you don't remember it. Take a look at my previous post.

Hope everyone enjoyed the little sneak peek. I still have lots to do. Trying to decide if I want to move the fireplace into the Diningroom for awhile. Son thinks I'm nuts and hubby just seems to go with the flow anymore. He knows how I am after all these years. Afterall, my home is my canvas and I love making small changes that don't cost an arm and a leg, but do somehow always involve hubby's help...LOL!

I'm hoping tomorrow I will put some things on the walls for another peek.
Stay tuned.
Hugs ♥*T
