Halfway done!

I have finished the painting and most of the clean up in the new bedroom. Last night, I put everything back in the closet after I purged a bit. Everything fits in the closet now nice and neat. I can't wait until I can say the same about the rest of the house!

Here are the pictures of the room. The color seems to be more gold in person. I really like how it looks with the new vent cover and electrical outlets and switches on the wall. I can't wait until the all of the molding is replaced as well, but that is some time off.

The color was from Home Depot (not sure of the line, but it is not Martha) and is called Sensible Hue. I thought it would be a sensible color to use! :-D

The purple dress was a bridesmaid dress from 10 years ago. I think that I am going to take it to a consignment shop in town and if they won't take it, it's going to Goodwill.

I need to vacuum the carpet again and then pile all of the tools and supplies in a corner of the hallway and out of the way.

Tonight, I need to watch some shows on the DVR so that it can tape the new shows this week. I was going to make a run to Goodwill to drop off some other things, but I think I will hold off on that until tomorrow night. I am going to start organizing things to move the furniture into the bedroom. Hopefully, I can start with that tomorrow night!

The dogs have to follow me in there because they are afraid that I am going to start painting and ignoring them again or something.
