Hayden's Room

Here is the other half of the renovation we have been working on.  Hayden's room was the most disgusting room in the house.  Gouge marks on all of the walls and the ceilings; dirty, stained, burnt carpet, you name it, this room had it.  It was awful.  

Here are some pictures of the various stages of renovation.

 Another room in it's pre renovation UGLINESS!
A closer picture of the DOUBLE LAYER of border that had adhered itself to the drywall.  That was an absolute blast to remove.

Carpet removed, window trim removed and walls primed.

Cutie pie helping with the paint.

Walls painted!  This was a custom color that Jake and I created.  LOVE it!

Closet doors out and trim up.

 Carpet in!

Here is a before and after, side-by-side.

The transformation is this room is phenomenal!  It looks completely different from when we moved in.  If it wasn't for the pictures, I would have a hard time remembering what it used to look like.

I'll post more pictures after we put the furniture back in and get it decorated.  Hayden already loves it though!  He spent half the day running around his room and wiggling his toes in the carpet.
I think he is happy to have his room back.  ;)

It's been a while.....

It's been a while since I posted last...over a month actually!  I have a very good reason for my absence though. We've been tearing our house apart and fixing it up!  We started on Hayden's room and decided to do the living room at the same time to save on carpet installation.

 Here is the living room in it's various stages.

Pre renovation UGLINESS!

Took the faux beams off the ceiling and the room seemed to grow!

Mid renovation we decided that we wanted the paneling down.  Nothing behind the paneling meant that we had to put up drywall.  This added a week to our already scrammed schedule!

 New wall up!  Great job Jake!

 Walls and ceiling primed.

Fireplace primed!

 Ceiling and walls painted.  Balmy seas...LOVE the color.

 Old, gross carpet out, fireplace painted and new trim up!

Carpet in!

For a quick recap....here is the before and after.

We still need to trim out the windows (behind me in this picture) and put up the vent covers and then this room will be done!  
I love to walk in this room and just look around.  
It feels like a warm, sunny day at the beach.
