So Close!

We close on Friday!!

4:30pm Paul signs the enormous stack of papers and we become homeowners.
Even Paul is beginning to show signs of excitement now.

I am keeping a notebook of ideas for each room, and I think the first room I am going to tackle when we move is the Dining Room (which you can see below).
My idea is to paint the wall with the mural black (or dark gray, haven't decided) and then below the chair rail and all the other walls a light gray.
All of the trim will remain white.

The furniture/wall hangings in the room will be either black, white or gray and we'll bring in color with a tablecloth, center piece and a few other decorative pieces.

We are going to ask the homeowner if he knows if there is hardwood underneath the carpet - we are hoping there is! Wouldn't that be amazing?!
If there isn't we will still redo the floor - carpet under a table makes no sense to me!

Here are a few home decorating/remodeling blogs I have been enjoying lately - so many great ideas on them!! Hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Yay!!!! I'm excited for you guys! I love your dining room ideas! I am wanting to paint a room grey here too :o)

I have so many ideas for our place. It's going to be so much fun to decorate. We're already thinking of paint colors. You and I need to go to a home show together to check out cool ideas ;o)

Looks like a great house! I'm sure you will be very happy there and it looks to me like the kind of place you can enjoy working on for years.

Have fun with it!

And thanks for sending people my way!
