We are moving right along with the room. So far we've got part of the framing in, at least along the long wall where the TV will sit. That is where the garage doors used to be. They have the headers in for the doors and the windows and most of the electrical work has been done. Tomorrow they are planning to put in the french door and the windows. They go on the side walls that look out on each of the little yards that I have. My house is T shaped. The garage is the lower part of the T. That explains why I have two yards. Each one has a small garden and the windows will look out to each of them.
Today, when there were not any workers here Jen and I headed out to Lowe's to get the outdoor fixture to put outside the French door. All the others I have are matching so I wanted this one to match, also. I also got the ceiling fan and the hardware for the door. For my retirement and my birthday I got a couple of gift cards so I used them and it made the bill less of a hit to my budget. We, also, looked at tile for the floor. As you can see from the picture above this is the palette that I am going to use. The fabric was what I used in my bedroom in the last house and I had the walls one of the pinks in the roses. I have a lot of it as I made a king size duvet cover out of it. I want to outline quilt around the design for several large pillows and some valances. Can't decide if I want other curtains or not yet. I want to go more neutral for the room so I got some cream and brown paint samples, kind of on the khaki side as there is some green in the khaki in the leaves. I don't know how well the colors will show up in the photo. I want to see all the samples in the room tomorrow after they put in the windows so I can see if they still coordinate in the light of the room.
I brought home several tile samples to look at too. I to be thrifty on my flooring choice as it is not included in the price of the room. I'll post again when they get the windows in.
