We had painted the floor with Lock-tite the last time this happened back in 2007 (my daughter initialed and dated the floor with the paint!) Apparently it wasn't enough to keep this from happening again.
Bob investigated and found that the floor molding was soft (rotting) and pulled off the wall boards to find that the water was seeping in from the brick foundation, not the flooring.
All the rotting wood was removed, the brick foundation painted with Lock-tite and the rotten wood replaced.
The wall board was replaced, and while we were at it, extra electrical sockets and wiring for track lighting was added.
Primer and color.. I had agreed with my husband to paint it a neutral cream but I woke up at 3am the night before purchasing the paint with an inspiration! Lavendar! A very light, neutral color rather than plain old white!
And to save on labor and fussing with taping and sanding to get the walls smooth, Bob suggested a bead board and chair rail to cover up most of the damaged areas.
I LOVE it!
Next was the padding and carpet from Williams Carpet. I can't get a good close-up picture but there are varying threads of color in this... including some purple . If I decide to change things up in the future I will have a variety of colors to choose from without having to replace the rugs!
First thing back in the room is my collection of sewing machines!
Tubs with fat quarters, civil war and 1930s fabrics have been moved back in. Along with smaller bins of projects started and a bookshelf full of additional projects.
I think I need to expand my UFO listing!
Cutting dies and my Dear Jan project sit in boxes under my Studio Cutter. The closet has 3 tubs of yarn and several other tubs with fabrics to be sorted through. There are a few more boxes of fabrics and notions in the other room. I need to get out shopping for more tubs to sort everything into.
I have three projects pulled out and sitting on my cutting/pressing table.... I can never work on just one thing at a time!
