Progress, Project Coming To An End!!!

Well Friends, I am so excited to tell you that the crown molding is complete. The big projects are done. I am now going to put the room together, fix the lights, touch up the paint and finally move all the furniture into place. The osb turned out just fine. I think the bonding really made a difference. I wish you could see the little sparkles in the paint.
This is my dh putting the first piece into place. He is a gem, after working 15 hours days for 2 weeks, he came home and hung the molding for me.
I had been putting primer on a few pieces of furniture but I stopped in a flash to help him. It seems like I am finally making progress and it feels so wonderful. I had a small meltdown when I went to get a piece of molding and thought I would give Mom a quick call to tell her to come and see what we were doing...and in a instant remembered she wasn't there....thank goodness dh is compassionate. We took a minute to let me cry and the returned to our work....such tough days sometimes.
Here are the two pieces I am working on...which color are you thinking?
So many choices. I will decided tomorrow but I will check back to see if you have any opinions!!

Morning Dianntha,
Your space is going to be just wonderful.
I have to say I have the same kind of husband - always there!
I remember the days and months - months/year after my mother passed...I can't tell you the number of times I reached for the phone to ask a question about something...then it hits hard again. How for granted we take them being there (although I didn't take my mother for granted - it was 'her in my life' that I took for granted as I was growing up ).
I pray it gets easier for you as time goes. You'll never forget but it will smooth out.
Blessings and I'm so anxious to see what this room is going to look like fully decked out in its glory.

Can't wait to see the room all put together Dianntha. You have wonderful taste. My mister is a hard worker like yours. We are so blessed to have them. And to understand when the meltdowns come. I still find myself wanting to tell my Daddy about a treasure I found as we shared our love for all things old. You have a great weekend.
