The Study Evolution

Just finished putting the last coat of poly on the floor. I’ll be able to move in next week. Yay! These are the pictures of the study evolution from the first being the realtor walk through picture and the last one is from today. I will take more pictures after I move in and get everything settled. But, I love before and after pictures and know you do too. Here you go!

Study after paint.  I want new paint though!  What color?  What color?

This is the way it stayed until late last year

This is how it looked for the past 5-6 years. The junk/scrapbook room.

Bumped out Vivian’s bathroom, removed the fireplace. It didn’t work. All of the chimneys were removed at some point in the past.

Recycled 100+ year old wood pieces to make a wood interest wall. Plan to put up shelving to house our book collection.

Started staining to see what the color would look like. Minwax Red Chestnut.

The color came out pretty good, nice and even

This picture shows the biggest difference in the floor. Can’t wait until it dries. I am trying hard not to go in there and touch it.

Now, on to refinish the floors in the rest of the house!  This was the “test” room.
