Maddie here.

Carol's so exhausted but stoked by her finally completing the family room makeover that she forgot about my Halloween outfit. Of all things, she went out with friends to dinner on Friday night and didn't get back for trick-or-treat. She had gotten me a special dress from my groomer for the occasion as she knows how much I love answering the door and being petted by all the kids, and I didn't get to wear it.

What a bummer. However, she did point out that it poured on and off all that night. But she came through like a trooper and let me wear my Halloween outfit on Saturday. Everyone who came over to see her room makeover all ooo'd and ahhh'd over me.

Now if I can only convince her not to take all the candy into work... Maddie

Room makeover finis!

I'm so proud of myself. When I began the family room makeover, I had no idea of what I was getting into and at points thought I had taken on more than I could chew [when I spent weeks scraping off rubber gook from the cement floor!]. The walls were a dull gray-brown fake wood paneling, the floor black outdoor carpeting, the windows had black blinds and the cabinetry was a dull red.

From ceiling to flooring to cabinetry, I made it all over. Yesterday they delivered my leather loverseat and the room is finally done. Even though it's a nice day outside, I'm sitting here, just looking at how the room glows in the light. Life is good. :) Carol
