The Big Move Upstairs!

New Years Eve marked the first night we spent sleeping upstairs, after three years in the house. The floors refinished, the walls painted, and all that white woodwork is now a beautiful dark walnut. Here is BR #1, with the lone TV as the only piece of furniture, which will probably end up as a guest room.

The green room is BR#2--our room. The dark picture is the landing which is almost all wood--it has 5 doors, and the built-in linen closet, with little strips of wall in between which we painted a golden color. (Colors don't show up very well in the pix)

The lighting Fixture is for my sewing room, from Rejuvenation. And the photo which follows that exact sewing room/office. We picked up a nice desk system and chair on Craig's list which I'll use to set up my sewing machine. It is a dark wood which goes with the woodwork really well.
It felt nice to unpack our books after 3 years--almost like getting all new stuff since we hadn't seen it in so long!
