On a side note: I really want to paint this closet black. I've discovered that besides the crappy wood floor, the walls are also some paper thin material rather than plaster or sheet rock. I'm wondering if I should just paint the thin stuff, add some trim, and call it done, since it hasn't really been a problem up to this point. Or do I owe it to my house to rip out the cheap junk and do it right? Either way, I think the final result will be black.
Next I continued out of the closet...
...and across the room. Compared to the bedroom, the floor needs more of a sanding to get all the paint and plaster splatters up, but the wood floors are actually in better shape. Some of the trim is also missing its quarter-round, so we have to replace that.
Currently this is the state of my craft studio. It is such a luxury to have all this space dedicated to my projects! I can't wait to have white floors in here, but I don't see myself getting to that project before summer vacation. *Sigh*
It will be so worth it in the end.
