Work in progress ...

If I had to choose a favorite room in my house, it would be my bedroom.  Even at its ugliest (holy gosh it was ugly) ... it was still my quiet place ... my escape from the South end of things.  It sits on the very Northern end of our house and allows me to separate myself from the kitchen, the laundry room, toilet seats used by boys, and bedrooms "cleaned" by boys.  The only thing it lacks is a refrigerator, but I can usually convince myself to walk the hall, grab a snack and retreat back to my Northern side.  My best days are when my room is clean and my sheets smell of bleach.  I know, I know ... bleach is bad.  But I was raised on bleach, and quite frankly those are happy fumes to me (this could explain a few things).

So when my brothers ... the most amazing ... seriously amazing contractors ever ... offered to help me surprise Gary with a somewhat updated look in our bedroom, I hopped in the truck and picked out my flooring.  This room is covered in fake wood, and I love it.  There is nothing about me that needs the real stuff! We have wood laminate on the floor and MDF planks on my wall.  It's my absolute favorite room now!  But before we have the reveal ... here are some pictures of the work in progress.

First that lovely green carpet had to go ... maybe it will find itself near other ugly shades of carpet in carpet heaven.  I was not sad to see it leave.





These are my brothers
acting very natural
as they walk in slow motion toward the camera.  :)





At this point, I was happy just to be rid of the carpet.  For the life of me I can't recall what we painted on that floor ... but there are lots of white rectangles somewhere!

 


  Then came a fresh coat of paint and that beautiful fake wood.  I love how Timmy is pretending to help his wife paint ...


Stay tuned ...

I can't wait to see it. Did you paint your ceiling a darker brown then the walls. It looks so great.

And your brothers are so photogenic :)
