Last weekend, we pulled everything out of the North Bedroom in order to paint the floors two coats of a dark expresso color, "Coal" by Valspar. I like the contrast between the painted floor and 10" off-white baseboards.
Here are some photos taken this afternoon, while putting the furniture back into the room. We changed the orientation of the bed, moving it to the long wall (17'). I'm more confident of this arrangement.
