Plank Floor Preview

Hello friends! I hope your week has been a good one! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I sure am! :)

Well, recently I told you how I put in a new plywood subfloor in our room, and that I was going for wide wood planks, painted white!

Well, last week I finished the floors and we were able to move our bed back into our room! And after two weeks of sleeping in the living room, we were so ready to have our room again!
I thought I would show you a little sneak peek of what the floor {and room} looks like!

The "planks" are eight inches wide, and six to eight feet long.

These are not really separate planks, but the grooves are not painted on. I will be giving you the whole run-down with pictures from before {with carpet} to how I did the floors, to after {with the whole room put together} very soon now! 

I am just putting back up the baseboard moulding and the moulding on the sides of the plank wall, and painting the furniture. I am also having fun decorating the room! This is the part I have looked forward to this whole time, because isn't decorating after you've finish a renovation the very best part? It's the frosting on the cake, I tell you! :) I love how it is coming together, too...

But you have all been so kind and patient with me and this long project, you deserve a quick peek of how the room itself looks...

You can see the plank wall {take two} and a little of the plank-ceiling-that-nearly-killed-me and a bit of the floor! {And as you can also see, there is no moulding yet, the light switch plates aren't up, and this was before we had any furniture back in the room!}

This picture doesn't show the faux fireplace my husband installed, but I show that to you in the next few days! :)
I hope this hasn't bored you all to tears, or that it isn't too disappointing! I also hope you have a wonderful night, AND a lovely Friday!

I will be back tomorrow with a delicious Christmas cookie recipe, for anyone looking for a new cookie to bake this season! :) Also some posts coming up this week:

*A great Christmas ornament craft for kids
*Lighting of the third Advent candle
*Amazing Cinnamon Rolls you can prepare the day before and bake in the morning! {No need to get up at the crack of dawn to taste a fresh sweet roll on Christmas!}

Thanks so much for coming by!


P.S. I was having trouble getting some of the text and one picture centered in this post!
