Floor Update and Photo Wall Inspiration

Tuesday, August 3, 2010


Last night Mr. and I moved all of the furniture out of the upstairs bedrooms.  Today I will clean and prep the floors and apply the first coat of floor paint.  I will take pictures to share, but until then, here are a few that I took over the weekend while in Williamsburg.  Mr. mentioned that he would like to have some black and whites for a wall gallery in his new office so I took a few of these photos with that in mind.  The water images are of the James River.
















    Have a great day!

      1. Rene, I can't wait to see your floors! And you were in Williamsburg and didn't tell me?! ;-) Our daughter graduated from W&M, so we know the area well! I'm glad you had a wonderful time, and I love the pictures!

      6. I guess it's a good thing I took the pictures before I rode the roller coasters ;)

        Kim, I usually use the auto or easy setting. I am slowing making my way through the manual though and will hopefully learn how to use the other settings eventually. I do a lot of tweaking in Picassa...don't know what I would do w/o it.

      9. Great pics and in black and white, they'd be so amazing too.

        Can't wait to see the floor project. Please do a step by step. So many of us, I'm sure, would love to see the how to.

        I sure would love it
