Baby/Guest Room Progess

Filed under: decorating — by michellew @ 2:34 pm

Our little room off of our family room has been our guest room since moving here.  Well Alice lived in it for a while when we had Josie, a college student living with us.  But mostly its been for guests.  We’ve always wanted to paint it because its so small and very dark.  The walls just sucked up the space and the floor well, it was a hideous linoleum.  So Bob has been working his tail off painting the room and he finished it last night.  I found the deal of the century at End of the Roll in Rossville on a very thick cushy berber carpet.  Plus a really great guy from our neighborhood installed the carpet for us this morning, and at a great price too.  So this room in less than a week has been completely transformed.  We still plan to hang a ceiling fan, hang a real door (taken from a closet in the playroom=free!) and change out some old ugly outlets.  I also need to make curtains and find a nice bed spread or quilt.  But I can’t resist sharing the progress we’ve made in the room so far.  You’ll just have to wait in suspense until we finish it completely and put the furniture back.  Click here to see the progress.

Update:  I almost forgot to add the two cute videos I took of the kids playing in the new room.  Aren’t they the cutest?

  3. Wow, that really brightened up the room and made it look so much bigger! It’s amazing what flooring and paint can do to a room.

  5. Good job you guys! It looks MUCH better! We have a lot of wood paneling in our house and it just makes rooms so much darker and I’m all about the light! You need to come by and see our house sometime – it’s been awhile since the boys have hung out!
