The floors originally had moldy carpet on them. Our house is on a cement slab, so when we (meaning Todd) took out the carpet, there was a cement floor. Todd did some research and found that he could buy some cement and made designs and color the cement. Well..that was great, until we found out the floor wasnt even! That is why some areas are lighter than others. It's not dirt/dust, it is the way the coloring slid. We now have hardwood flooring to put in the room, but we (again, meaning Todd) havent had a chance to put it in yet. We arent putting it in until next year because the wood burning stove has to be taken out to do the flooring. This stove heats up this side of the house for us at a minimal cost.
This room is where we put the Christmas tree. We dont really use it often. I like to go in there and read next to the pot bellied stove in the winter, but my wing-back chair isnt in there anymore. Maybe I will ask Todd to put it back in a few months.. The table is in there because it was from my mom, and we needed more table-space for our 4th of July party. The piano is the first new piano my parents surprised me with as a child. They had an old upright they got for free out of someone's basement and made sure I kept up with piano lessons for at least a year. Then, when I went to my best friend's house in Pennsylvania for two weeks, they bought me this. It was a pleasant surprise, and I cant stand to get rid of it. I would like to re-learn how to play.
So, there you have it. Our Living Room.
