The new room

I have one big tip for everyone wanting to renovate an entire room - Don't do it by yourself!!! Now I tend to do these things when Aaron is away because, to be honest, he can be more hindrance than help. But if he is dressed in the right clothes etc then he is good at the muscle stuff - lots of rollering on the walls, taking furniture in and out etc.

This project almost became too much for me and halfway through I wanted to give up. I cleaned, sanded and prepped the room on Friday night till 11pm, Saturday I just finished painting at 11.30pm and Sunday the entire project was finished, in between going to church - seeing Pop for fathers day, at 10.15pm.

The pictures do not show the black curtain up. I now still have to put up new shelving etc and redo the foam pad on the blanket box and make a pin board. So I have two rooms half done!!

Eli chose the colours months ago and has been pretty strong about that choice being a good one. So I went with it. Why not give him what he wants? He is now also asking for a new quilt to go with his room!
