I guess this isn’t a true before and after, more of a during and after. But here it is, none-the-less.
This is our upstairs. We re-painted, ripped-out the worlds worst carpet, put in a new sub-floor, moved the two vents (since they were in the middle of the room) and put in another plug. Then the carpet and mill work went in. This isn’t including all of the work James did in the walk-in closet (which will be a different post).
I only snapped a picture of the corner because there are still some tools and materials on the other side of the room, but this shows a bit of all of the work that was done. We decided to go back to light walls (we had darker grey before) and put in a dark brown carpet.
We love it. If we had gone with a light coloured carpet the room would look too bland, but the floor makes the walls ‘pop’ and with some colourful accents and some pictures or artwork up it’ll work really well.
Stay tuned for the walk-in closet post!
Who needs House & Home when you have this nifty tool?
The above design idea is what I would like to do to my basement…someday.
So I’ve finally returned from the great wild west. The kids and I had a grand ol’ time visiting with our long-lost family but it feels good to be home. Believe it or not, I was actually getting antsy to do some cleaning and make myself useful…and get blogging again (I’ve actually missed it). I don’t have much time to write all about our trip and upload some pictures, with all the unpacking, the cleaning, and the grocery shopping that needs to get done, but I promise that I’ll get to it later today or tomorrow. I will leave you with a little something though! Do you remember waaaaaay back when I posted about the Pink Polka Dot Party? I said that Ammie and I took some decorations home for her room to spruce it up a bit. Well, I waited until Ammie was downstairs to put it all together (so it was kind-of a mini ‘While You Were Out’…) so when she came up to see it she was beyond excited. I wish I had video taped her reaction; think toddler jumping up and down saying, “Wook Mommy, Wook!” Very cute. So here’s the room…
I actually had that big circle purple pillow and polka dot blanket on her bed before I added my sister’s things…it was meant to be!
