Our House....

Something around here is ALWAYS under construction...

....and a while ago we switched rooms with Gage.... I suppose it was a year ago....Well, since that time, our room was so low on the totem pole that it just wasn't touched.

Until---Hubby went out of town for a week, and I got busy in there!

...as you walk through the bedroom door:




I still need to add real curtains, not just those sheers....but---this was an almost FREE spruce up. The only new purchase for the room: two new lamp shades. That's it!



....behind that big curtained area: future home of my master bathroom & closet. It's been in the making for...well, let's just say "some time now." Renovations of these old homes always takes longer & more money than you anticipate as you dream up the renovation ideas. The good news: demolition on that room is already underway, and for now, the area just looks like a disaster area. But, at least we are that much closer to being done, right?

Anyway...the new room has been almost spotless for a week now, and it's so relaxing in there. I'm lovin' it! And, like I said---it was almost FREE! (the Hubby likes THAT!)

It is beautiful. I would be scared to have white in my house. My kids would smear all kinds of bad things on it.

Oh, I'm jealous!! Our room is the last to be fixed up and right now we have our son's old dresser and nightstand - red with sports knobs and a wire basket system as a dresser for Todd. So sad!

Your room is beautiful and looks very relaxing.

It looks beautiful! And I can totally relate to projects that take a really long time. Just the planning phase takes forever and then there's the actual project.

sadly, our house looks almost the exact same as it did when we moved in 6 years ago--- cept for Little Bean's room, of course. that and the dining room are all we've painted. & curtains and stuff have never been touched.

great job.
