Projects have started again

Well, I've started my project. A while back I told you that once I was done with my surgery I was going to work on stripping wallpaper from my bedroom. It was the easiest job ever...the paper just came right off. Now that is the way it should be. We also pulled up the corner of the carpeting to see the floor. It is the original wood floor and it is in nice shape. Hubby was not sold on using the bare wood...but said I could do whatever I want. The carpeting is a burber (sp) which is in wonderful shape...but it is a blue figured....very ugly. I would much rather have a taupe but for now I either have to stick with the blue or use the bare wood. I have not decided on a color theme because it really is all about the flooring. I will change the colors totally if we pull the carpet up. If not, then it will be similar to the bathroom that I posted months ago that is blue and dark brown. So I am having a day or two to decide and then I will get to work.
Right now the room is totally cleared out of all the decorations, just the bed and dresser is left. But my parents will be home today and that will slow down the progress because I will take the girls to see them tomorrow and we have to go to the vet....and an antique store to look for a headboard for our bed.
Today I have go to the furneral home, my best friend's mom passed away. She was a wonderful lady and I don't think I ever met anyone whom was so happy all the time...a joyful laugh! Kim, I will keep you in my prayers!
Have a wonerful Sunday...and remember today is the Lord's day let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Hello, Long time no comment:0 I have been full of life and it's tasks. I hope your choice pleases you with the floor. With the dogs the clicking of the nails on their feet are a"wood floor" annoyance. The silence of the Pink carpet I have is better than letting them click into my brain.

Hey Dianntha! Thanks for you lovely comments on my recent project. Just when I got my brain wrapped around the idea of painting, I'm hearing that wallpaper is coming back into vogue. Go figure! I guess you just need to do what YOU like. I'm considering getting new flooring for my kitchen and can't bring myself to consider hardwood or laminate because of my aging dog...too slippery for her. Good many things to consider.
