Most of you know I live in a 100 year old Victorian Row House....................
Full of character? check
Full of charm? check
Full of history? check
Full of sunlight? nope - can't check that box off
The middle and back end have a " courtyard " type of thing where the building stops being connected
to the neighbours - and because it's a " courtyard " type of thing it makes our bedroom - which is smack in the middle of this " courtyard " type of thing very dark.
When I decided to paint the bedroom floor it was to cover up the ridiculous job that had been done prior to our living here ( see HERE ) I never thought for a moment it would brighten up the room as much as it's done
It's still, not by a long shot, flooded with light but it feels a lot brighter none the less.
I'm in the process of painting our dressers white - because I am determined to fool mother nature at her own
game ( plus deal with the shade from that " courtyard " type of thing )
Looking much better, isn't it? I was going to paint the walls - but now that I see the white against the blue I'm liking the contrast..........so it's staying and it's one less job for me to do.
I'm hoping to have the house back in order for Monday morning - and I've reached that point -
You know the one just before total despair at the monumental task you've taken on - and the moment
you realize you absolutely positively made the right choice?
Yeah, that one - that's where I'm at.....................
And boy, does it feel good!
Pretty soon I'm going to need sunglasses to walk in there :) despite that " courtyard " type of thing......................
I'm on the computer till 7 a.m. - I am soooo behind on replying to emails - and then I'm computer free for the rest of the day - HAVE to get organized here! Yesterday I truly felt like one of those people from Hoarders as I was rummaging through dresser drawers in the living room looking for a pair of clean underwear............
Have a great Saturday
