Well, there are still a few things to finish up, but they are going to have to wait. We accomplished a good deal the last 24 hours! Here are the promised "After" pictures. Sorry about the quality. I wanted to get them posted tonight, so I snapped them rather quickly, but it'll give you the idea.
I'm hoping to do a little decorating soon - adding some things to the wall, making the window coverings, etc. We also will be sorting and purging the bookshelves. My goal is for this 'catch-all' room to be renamed the Library. Sounds rather sophisticated, don't ya think? The little guys and I 'do school' at the dining room table, now -- but I think we'll move in here to the Library for schooltime!
I'm beat - off to bed for a good night's sleep so I can enjoy the Lord's Day with my family tomorrow!
