So, the wheels are a turning for a bedroom makeover on my boys’ room. If you’ve been here for a while you know it’s the room that I dislike…A LOT! To appease them all many years ago I let them pick a color for their bedroom and since there are three of them that share a room, they of course chose three VERY different colors.
And the wall you cannot see in these pictures…lime green! Yep, pretty bad isn’t it?!
Anyway, I’ve been pinning ideas for their room here. And have been picking up things at my Restore that I think will work in this new room.
I found these jar-looking sconces at ReStore back in the fall and am excited to see how they will look in the new less colorful room!
Can you see it? The possibilities?? I sure can! I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can get outside and start some painting! We bought this whole lot of cabinets, but that’s a deal story for a whole different day.
Well, we started by tearing out the walls. Most of the walls were plaster and if you have ever had plaster walls and have removed them, you know it is a MESS!
The blurry pictures show the dust floating around in the air. The disaster on the floor is a small fraction of what we took out of that room.
After removing the plaster, we found VERY little insulation in the walls. No wonder it’s so cold in here!
We would love to leave the slanted walls exposed but with the freezing cold winters, there is just no way that will work.
We removed the carpet from the room and were excited to see hardwood floors underneath. But they are in really bad shape with missing pieces and some bad gaps.
So, here we are with a clean slate. The weeks ahead will be filled with decisions on wall type, flooring, colors, and all other fun choices.
I’ll keep you all posted as new developments take place! But for now, we are off to insulate.
