We (actually my husband) made a lot of progress on our master bedroom makeover this weekend.
*He took down the ceiling fan and a light.
*Pulled up all of the carpet from the room.
*Painted the ceiling a fresh coat of white paint.
*And touched up the walls in the bathroom and bedroom.
Unfortunately, we are at that stage where it doesn’t look like we have gotten much done.
And of course, we are not at the most fun part of our makeover yet …the decorating!
So I have a few not-so-inspiring pictures to show you.
Hubby taking down the huge ugly ceiling fan…
Capping the wires and adding a ceiling plate…
(Yes, we have those UGLY textured ceilings, but girls, I do not EVEN want to think about replacing our ceilings…that’s for another time, another place!)
Speaking of a project that we are saving for a later date…
We are not installing hard wood floors in our room like we had hope. (BIG huge pouty face)
Honestly, we just don’t have the money.
I had my heart set on beautiful hard wood floors, but we can’t always get what we want, right?
So we are going to get carpet installed instead.
And I am thankful, and I am grateful. Some people will never live in a carpeted home their entire life!
Here is my sweet Eli wanting to help Daddy paint. He had undressed all the way down to his “church socks” and was ready to work.
Eli says, “Be sure to use a extension pole when painting the ceilings…it’s a must!”
Jonathan and Eli watched the Kentucky Wildcats beat Mississippi State in overtime to win the SEC championship, while Daddy painted the walls. (Woo-hoo!)
Notice the carpet is all gone!
My hubby also took down the light that you see was in front of the window. I am hoping to find a chandelier to go there.
We are going to put a fresh coat of white paint on the trim and doors too before the carpet is installed later this week.
I’m still trying to decide on bedding and such. And I am trying to be patient and make wise and frugal choices. :)
That’s all for now, but be sure to stop by later today for my…
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! (Echo, echo, echo, echo)
Well, it might actually be bigger to me than to you. :)
But stop by anyway, ya hear?
