♥ A New Remodeling Project ♥

We can't ever let things rest for too long, can we? 

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.

The messy room awaits a makeover.....a glimpse of the furniture. 

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.........  :)

Hi Tammy!

I know you guys will do a great job! You always do! It is a big job, but it is always worth it in the end. I cannot wait to see the finished product. Have fun! = )

Colt's room will look awesome when finished.
The pain chip - is it a brownish or a greenish?
Either way I like how it is showing up.
This color family is very popular right now. Seen lots of it in friends/family houses lately.

I don't like the mess that one makes in a project but in the end it is always true delight.
I can not wait to see the finished project. Have fun!!!

Sheila said...

I always enjoy seeing what project you folks will take on next! Love the color choice and can't wait to see it all put together.
You make me want to rip into my projects but I have to wait until it's a bit warmer before we do.

Susannah said...

Hi Tammy, Every remodel and redecorating job that you and Jason do is fantastic! I really like the paint color.....I would pick out something like that.
Good luck and can't wait to see the finished room!


Holly said...

What fun! I can't wait to see it done!

Karen said...

Yay, another project! It's always fun to see what you do!

Raymond Homestead said...

You will enjoy it when it's done. It's nice that you can do it yourselves.

DIY all the way! I can't wait to see the finished results and the flooring, y'all are doing? P.ease post pics of installation, we need to put in new floors but that is just intimidating. We will fix some beams to square off the house proper then tackle with some carpet and perhaps hard woods. All we have now is subfloor ing which I've managed to cover with braided rugs.....lets just say chilly! Our stairs are horrid and built for teeny tiny people. I wear a size 10 shoe and can barley fit half my foot on there. I can't wait to rebuild those!! Love the paint color too!
