Hallway Makeover Progress

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

Matt and I have finally moved from our temporary “bedroom” that we had set up in the breakfast room into the guest bedroom. That took way longer than I had intended, but the craziness of 2020 really got my focus off of house-related projects. And then at the beginning of this year when I finally did finish the bedroom, Matt reminded me that we still couldn’t move into the bedroom until I finished the hallway floor.

So after finishing the floor in the hallway and giving it about a week for the polyurethane to cure, we were finally ready to move in. It’s going to take some getting used to. The breakfast room has three big windows, and the room always seems very bright during the day. Here’s how the room looked right after I finished it a few years ago…

The room is very bright if all of the lights are turned on, but if we’re only wanting natural light (which we both prefer to turning on lights), it’s a much darker room than the breakfast room. So that will take some getting used to.

But other than that, we’re really enjoying it. I ended up having to get rid of the platform bed (although I kept the headboard) in the bedroom because Matt’s occupational therapist suggested that we get an adjustable bed since he spends so much time in bed. (For those of you who are new around here, Matt is my husband, and he has M.S.) I wanted one that high really good customer ratings, but wouldn’t break the bank. So we ended up getting this one, and we both really like it.

Anyway, now that the floor is finished and cured, and we’ve officially moved into the bedroom, I’ve been trying to finish up the hallway. I got the trim around the cased opening between the hallway and music room re-installed. I still have to wood fill the nail holes, caulk the cracks, and paint. But it’s nice seeing trim again, and not raw lumber and cut edges of drywall.
