If you follow on facebook, you would know things are moving and shaking in the house right now. AND really, really messy as we are moving four kids in three different rooms. Everyone is getting a new room, new hardwood floors and a new paint color.
Shocking as it sounds, they all picked very neutral walls in the "grey color" family. A big change from the cobalt blue rooms and pink/purple room.
The oldest two boys share a room and were in room #2, but as you can see by the layout it isn't a great room for two beds if you need any other furniture. They are moving into room #3. There are three whole walls in that room for them to use.
And my daughter is moving from room #3 into room #4 which has a larger closet.
And that leaves room #2 for our youngest son.
Confused yet? Don't worry, I've added the floor plan below.
No project ever goes as smoothly as I think it will when I first start to plan it. I mean, how could it?
However, I wanted to have phase 1 completed this weekend so I could have two weekends to rebuild my pantry and laundry room before the family comes over on Thanksgiving. I don't think I'm going to finish!
Checklist - Phase 1:
Install hardwood floors (only room #2 left to do this weekend)
Paint all rooms (only room #2 left to do this weekend)
Baseboards and trim for rooms #2 & #4
Install new closet door guides on floor
Reinstall closet doors
Prime and paint bed frames for older boys (need a second coat)
Phase 2 -
Build Bed Frame (platform) for youngest son
New ceiling fans/lighting for all three rooms
Build desk for older boys
New closet organizer for older boys
Decorate, Accessorize and figure out what else needs to be done
Here are a few before pics and progress pics:
|This was the color of room #3 (before)|
|Built 2 bedframes, primed and one coat of paint (using room #2 as a painting room)|
|Original color of both boy rooms, see the ceiling has been scraped and the carpet removed|
|New color of room #3 and the during of the bedframe|
I'm going to need to kick it into high gear if I'm going to finish this weekend. Wish me luck! :)
