Lyndon went away with my parents last weekend for their yearly "Memere & Pepere" weekend with the grandkids. I have been planning to redo his bedroom for months, but have been waiting for the time and perfect chance....this was it. I dropped him off Friday afternoon and quickly began to strip his bed and walls and begin painting. BEFORE:
By Saturday afternoon I was finished except for hanging his light fixture and accessorizing and organizing. Luckily Cody helped me with the light fixture which turned into a 2 hour job-not fun, just ask Cody!
Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of Lyndon's surprised face, because he previously thought that he lost his DS and was upset. He was definitely exhausted after his weekend of fun!
I still need 3 more curtain panels-I bought the wrong size, as well as his ceiling, crown molding, and his very frustrating closet doors (they will not stay on the rollers). Lyndon is happy with the way it looks now, but I can't wait for the finished room!!!
I am blessed to be the wife of a great husband, Cody & the mother to a wonderful little boy, Lyndon. I have always been interested in design: 1st wanting to be a fashion designer, & then an interior decorator. I am neither, BUT do love to continually have projects at home & to give advice to family & friends when asked. Another passion of mine is children & I put that passion to work in my classroom as a 3rd grade reading teacher. It is amazing to see students 'enjoying' the learning process. I love to shop (bargains especially). I am always up for a challenge & strive for perfection. I love to spend time with my family & wish I would make more time for friends. I am truly blessed & have choose to use this blog as a way of keeping a scrapbook of Lyndon, share our day-to-day life with family, to express my love for design, & to nosey into other peoples' ideas. I love to look at others' blogs; it reminds me of my love of driving around looking at houses-only I get to peek inside now. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
