I always try to keep our bedroom neat and orderly, but we needed more than neat. We needed some new paint, bedroom quilt and new flooring. I had purchased a quilt and shams along with curtains right after Christmas when all the sales where going on. I have kept them tucked neatly away in our closet until we decided to paint. I can't wait to get them on the bed! I started painting yesterday. It takes awhile to paint paneling, but I like the outcome. We have paneling in every room of our home, and we have painted them all except our room. Michael REALLY wanted to rip the paneling off throughout the whole house and dry wall it. I would have liked that better too, but the cost would have been a lot. It would also have taken a lot of time because he would have had to also buy new trim and trim out the whole house. Did I mention that was going to be very expensive?? So we settled on painting the paneling.
Here is our biggest challenge to redoing our bedroom....
When we purchased Missy she was a cute SMALL little thang. Michael was working 3rd shift and I missed having a snuggle partner. I stuck the cute little thang in bed with me at night. What was I thinking??? The cute Little thang grew into a 160 pound beast that still likes to snuggle in OUR bed any chance she gets. She always waits until Michael starts snoring to sneak up onto the bed. We have spent the last week trying to prepare her that our bedroom is becoming off limits. We are encouraging her to go to the basement and sleep with the kid that BEGGED for us to buy her. He has a nice camouflage comforter set and she had already chewed a hole in that when she was just a puppy. I think it will be easier to hide her hair and paw prints on camouflage than my new ivory quilt. When I showed Michael our new ivory quilt, he asked me, "What were you thinking???"!
I am hoping by the end of this weekend our room will be completed. I will post pictures as soon as I have something to show!!
grace and peace,
