So after Mom and Dad tiled their house we ended up with the rest of the tile from their project. We have had that tile sitting in our garage for 2 years with the intention of tiling the entry-room when we had the money to do it. We finally were able to do that! I am very pleased with the results! Thanks Travis (my wonderful brother in law) for laying the tile.
could not have done it without you!!
The change in flooring necessitated a change in the wall color as well. The paint we had in there looked like 1980's peach after we laid the tile, Yuck!!! I had a can of brown paint downstairs and it was perfect. Then, as was always my plan, I purchased vinyl lettering to go around the top of the wall over the bookcases. It says "You may have tangible wealth untold, caskets of jewels and coffers of gold; Richer than I, you will never be, for I had a mother who read to me."
I also found a new ceiling light fixture on sale. I decided it was affordable. It is a much better fixture than what we had in there, and gives off more light too. I would say that is proper for a library.
