~Do I Want to Decorate or What?

How long is this going to be going on? Stush couldn't work yesterday or today...yesterday because he had to help get the dock ready and today he had to work!!!

Anyway, this is the entryway and a little of what I plan to do in there, I just love the floor:) Stush just has to finish one side of the keeping room and kitchen plus do the trim. That's one thing I'd like to ask...should all the trim around the windows and floors be the same color? The livingroom, kitchen and keeping room which is off the kitchen, I'd love to do like my stepback cupboard, blue with a walnut stain wiped over top but in the entryway and hallway and bedrooms is the color that I showed in a previous post...would it look okay? Loved to hear from you on this one.:) BTW the two colors would match. Tonight we are going out to dinner with friends and all traveling in a little mini bus, our one friend sells cars so this should be an adventure in itself/LOL

Have a great day, the sun is shining and it's just beautiful out, I have to get groceries and stop at Lowes for more flowers:)


  1. Hi Rondell,
    I can finally see your blog today...there are still a few others that I can not.
    Love your new floor!! And Alex looks so adorable on her graduation day from pre-school.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    hugs, Cindy

  2. Have fun with all your re-doing. It will all come together. Sounds like a grea time with friends--have a nice weekend. Julie

  3. Hi Rondell....I haven't been able to get onto your blog until today....I know there is a system-wide problem that is in the process of being fixed....anywho....the floors look great and I LOVE the chair with the potted flowers and the candleholder, LOVE that look!....and about the trim....of course it is your house and you should do whatever makes you smile but my thought is that the woodwork around the windows, doors, and the baseboards should be all the same throughout the entire house....you wanted opinions so there's mine! LOL....have a wonderful weekend! Janet

  4. Rondell,

    I can totally relate to having to wait on your husband to have time to work and living with the mess! We just can't wait to get to the decorating part, right? I do love your floors too!

    As far as the trim, I don't know what's "correct" to do as far as trim. I've always kept them the same color, but I sure don't know! Have you looked around to see? I'm thinking keeping it more uniform, rather than different colors might make it look bigger and make you notice the things you display more, instead of the trim. But again, I don't know the "correct" thing to do....I learn by trial and error and just "eyeing" it to my satisfaction!

    Whatever you do, I can't wait to see it all, girl!

    Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!


  5. hello Rondell, your new pictures look so nice! Love your floors! Have fun tonight!~Kathy

  6. I'm hopeless on any sort of interior design, so I will just throw in that you have EXCELLENT taste and if you think something will look good, it's a sure bet it will!!!

  7. Good morning Rondell - HAPPY MEMORIAL WEEKEND.
    Your floor is looking juse wonderful. Isn't the new wood just great - I know how you are feeling!!!
    Love the geranium!

  8. Is there room on the mini bus for me??? LOL! Have a great weekend!!

  9. Rondell I am looking for a black check shower curtain. Would you mind sharing where you got yours. I'm getting ready to redo my bathroom! I saw you purchased it with an ebay gift card
    ? Thanks Dawn

  10. I don't blame you on wanting to get the work done. I am still waiting for trim to be put up in both girls rooms but I don't dare push my luck because right now we are working outside and hubby does work full time and there are nights where is so tired he just wants to sit and do nothing. So I shall wait. But I can't wait to see all the paint colors and to see your entrance all done up because I know it will look great.

    Have a great day tomorrow...
