Remodel Update

From this:

To this:

We are still waiting on a few more shelves.

Hey, look. We painted the ceiling yellow too. It makes the crown moulding POP.

To the left is our media section.

See any books you have and or like?

We're still digging out, the job is not completed but it sure looks a lot better!!

I know you are enjoying these shelves. One day we hope to have a *libary* but right now the books are spread out and many are in boxes.

BTW, Janet, when did you read Stepping Heavenward? Recently or years ago? Who recommended it to you?

Just curious...I own it and have read parts...not the whole thing.

I read Stepping Heavenward about 10 years ago and I love it!! I highly recommend it (start to finish :)). I honestly can't remember who suggested it to me....but I'm thankful they did.

Beautiful! and I can tell you from experience that it is warm and cozy with just enough room to boogie to 'Jeremiah was a bull frog'...if you kick the kiddos out

I will take credit for Stepping Heavenward.

I learned about the book from Elisabeth Elliot. And I learned about Elisabeth Elliot from my dear friend Cynthia. I read it for the first time in 1995.

Oh! That book means the world to me.

Along with the Bible, I would list Stepping Heavenward, The Excellent Wife, and The Utmost for His Highest as my favorite spiritual books.

And your shelves!!!!

I love them and I wish I could have seen you girls dancing :o)

Janet said...

I figured it was you Donna, just couldn't remember fer sure.

With all the unpacking I came across that great CD Cindy made for us. What great tunes. I wanted Janice to experience the sound system in that room and dancing is a MUST when good music is playing.

Janet said...


you GAVE me that book.


Donna Boucher said...

Did I write in it?

Janet said...

No, I already checked. :-)

Your shelves look wonderful. We are having some built for our bedroom...they should be done between Thanksgiving and Christmas. s

Great looking room!! I have the Light and the Glory. I home-schooled my three kids for about ten years. We too have lots of books.
