We have a small makeover project in the works.
We've talked about redoing Colt's bedroom for a few months. We had already decided we would do nothing to it for a year, just in case he wanted to come back and find things as he left them. :) He's been living out in his own apartment now for over a year and a half.
When Jason's dad passed away last April, we took one of his bedroom's furniture and Jason's sister took the other. Since then, it's just been stored in that bedroom with the door closed. I have done absolutely nothing with that room. I honestly don't even like to go in there. I miss Colt being there. About the only time we ever go in there is when we're playing hide-n-seek with the kids (we like flashlight hide-n-seek) or when I was wrapping Christmas gifts.

So we decided it was time. We finally picked out a color for the walls. And the yucky carpet has to come out. So basically this room will get a makeover of a new wall color, a new floor, and new furniture (new to us anyway). And then of course, the fun part will come.......the decorating part!
Here's the paint color sample:
The photos didn't really capture the true color. Here's another photo, but still not like seeing it in person:
Jason already took back the sample of the rustic laminate flooring when he ordered it. It's called Hickory Praline. I didn't realize he was taking the sample back or I would have gotten a photo of it first. Oh well, you'll have to wait until the real thing is here. :)
The plan is to start this weekend. Not sure how far will get as we have to tear out a custom built entertainment center, take down border, and get the walls ready for painting. If we could have it all painted by the time the weekend ends, I'll be one happy gal! The floor will hopefully follow the next weekend or two after that.
I could probably chronicle our lives by the chapters of home remodeling projects! We've completely redone several rooms, one project at a time! I always dread the mess, but love the outcome. Doing it ourselves is always worth the time and mess in the end, and besides doing it ourselves fits our budget much better.
So here we go again......... :)
