sneak peek at the new floors :) Sign In/Join

So this weekend we went to the new house and I got to see the new wood floors and the newly painted walls.

The floors look amazing, they used to be a creamy shaggy carpet. The walls are now all painted in swiss coffee, quite the departure from my peanut butter colored walls in the current house. I have to say I'm very happy with the wall color, the wood floors definitely ground the room now and walls make the home feel calm and fresh throughout.
It's hard to tell in the before pictures, but the LR walls were a greenish beige that seemed to change hue as the day wore on.

So here is a before:

Thank you all for the nice replys.

In all my years (and I am up in years)we've never done this. Usually I do the painting and it takes time...lots of time. In the past we would of lived with the carpet and done the floors down the road. So this is a lovely treat/splurge to get it done before we move in.
