Mission accomplished.

Don't you love it when you transform (Lord knows I extremely dislike that word but in this case I'll use it) a room and it doesn't cost you a penny?
Me too!!
All it took was a little muscle.

First, I had to empty out the "land of misfit furniture."
Man, what a mess I made! The hallway was so jam packed with stuff, I accidentally barricaded little Gracie in a corner.

Guessing by the color of those old pine floorboards, looks to be painted about the 1930's. Truthfully, I wouldn't have minded if they weren't all scratched to heck. But they were. So I really minded.

I got on my hands and knees and did a quick sanding, before I threw down three coats of floor paint which I had sitting in the closet waiting patiently for me.

My poor little Stella is still a little under the weather so she hung out the whole time.

Then I slowly introduced some of the misfit furniture until I had it looking like a spare bedroom/quiet space.
With all the "leftovers, it looks like I'll be having a barn sale this year!

It's nothing fancy. But then again, I'm not the fancy type.
I'm more the old, grandma's farmhouse type.

And little Gracie came out unscathed.

Get a plane ticket to CA and help us out! You are doing a fantastic job in NY! I am so glad that Gracie is out of the corner. Poor girl puts up with SO much.
House looks really fine! Are you expecting company??
