Look at how nice that hardwood looks!

I also decided to move the clothes hamper right next to the chair, upon which I usually tossed my clothes, in an attempt to quash that urge. I figured I could even use the hamper as a side table if I needed to.

Now it looks as though I need to hang something on the wall above it as it looks rather plain.

And as I hoped, Pete has finished working on patching and repairing the walls in the TV room closet, so I will be on track for painting this weekend. I may hold off on varnishing the woodwork until spring when I varnish the second floor trim, so that will save me some time.
