behold. the library. ignore the unfinished trim there on the left. and disregard the man behind the curtain. it is now complete! just in case you needed a refresher - on the left: first walk-through of the house. on the right: post carpet removal/painful [mums] floor scraping/expensive messy sanding/priming and paint
*edited* i figured out my right and left. the above sentences are correct now.
and an inbetween shot. my mom spent... 8 hours scraping the foam crap off the floor. developed some kind of tingly probably carpel tunnel... aaand i ended up getting the floor refinished anyway cos we ran out of idea after mineral spirits, goo gone, dry ice [dont believe the hype], and pure rage.
moral of the story: dont put carpet down on really nice hardwood floors. srsly.
well traveled ikea bookshelves [the cabinet doors are hiding my collection of engineering books. they serve as bookshelf anchor weights..]
my desk with cork boards nailed up, bathrobe cos for once in the past year its not 80 in my dwelling, and facebook ripe for the surfing.
