...since I've posted anything here. Life has just gotten in the way (imagine that).
Been doing a lot of work in my house. And thanks to my son and grandsons, I have new laminate flooring in my bedroom and office, the two rooms I spend the most time in. So, of course, that "required" a total re-do of both rooms :-) I know, a picture is worth a thousand words, so while I don't have my new headboard made yet, here's the bedroom.
First picture is after floor, but before any other re-do. This is my massive, king size bed.

The floors were sort of a necessity. Very old carpet with lots of pet dander and dust imbedded in it. I had bronchitis all winter long and just never seemed to totally shake it. In March the doctor decided I had developed chronic bronchitis and asthma and said I needed to rip up all my carpet. Well, that's bit easier than said, but I did have some hefty workers and they did a great job. Of course, my house was a total wreck for awhile. They did my bedroom while I was in Texas in June at another grandson's graduation, and the office just in the last few weeks.
So, really I didn't change any furniture except the bed- which I'd been considering doing for quite awhile, and painting a few things white and moving them around a bit - and of course, draperies, curtains, & pillow covers. Yeah I know, according to HGTV, I'm way too cluttered - but it looks so much less so with the new floor and bed. And, "I" like it, and that's what matters.
