After a week of hard labour we now have flooring in the entire downstairs: living room, dining room, family room, playroom, hallways, bathroom, master bedroom. We (G and father) just need to add moldings. NO MORE CONCRETE!!!
Here is the family room overhead view
Before: Dirty nasty beige barf
Wait until you see what we have planned for the fireplace!
We have been slowly pecking away at the playroom. Which started out look like this.....
I would say it’s about 90% complete. Most of the work left is decorating and prettifying (that’s a real word, spell check didn’t flag it. And spell check KNOWS). I don’t have a reveal yet but I will show some projects we’ve done and an in progress shot.
Art Display Area
Two cork boards from a garage sale ($1 each). Left over pink craft paint. I had planned on covering the cork with fabric but I realized it would be covered with drawings and photos so I saved myself the hassle and just painted it.
The only item I bought for this was a clothing rail (the lower one). Everything else we already owned.We have a full length children’s mirror from ikea that is mounted on the other side of the closet. No picture of that because there is also a giant cardboard box of stuffed animal. Practical but not pretty.
Wall Gallery. $2 Ikea frames. Prints from oohmoon.com
And here is the in progress shot. This doesn’t show the whole room. I also have a large bookshelf, two recliners, the dress up area, and much more but it gives you an idea of how much more AWESOME PRETTY PINK BRIGHT FUN "COOOOLLLLLLL MAMA" it is.
