A Little Remodel

When we bought our little 1-bedroom house, Rob and I quickly decided that the bedroom would suit us much better if it belonged to the kids rather than us. Since it came with a queen bed, the remodel began almost immediately. Unfortunately, Rob was much quicker than I was, so by the time I made it outside with the camera, he already had the room emptied out, not to mention the new flooring down. But I can tell you that all of this

and this

came out of the little bedroom. When I saw the room, it looked something like this:


The kids had picked out the flooring they liked and I painted the walls to freshen them up a little.


Rob began building the bunks, and pretty soon the room started taking shape.


We painted the kids’ beds to match their favorite color, but the boys’ boards got mixed up and William ended up with the green board up on his top bunk and Nathan had the orange one down on the bottom. Rather than switch beds, they decided color wasn’t that important, so they agreed to switch boards instead.

Rob built some desks so they each have their own little work space, and it didn’t take long for the room to start looking like home.


I am currently working on curtains and we are adding a few things to make it more personalized, not to mention we still need to pick up chairs for the desks, but for now, it is working. I will have to share some more pictures once we have the final touches done.

The little room turned out great. Rob did an amazing job, especially considering how limited he was on time.

A special Thank You goes out to Rob’s sister, Mary Beth, and her husband, Jim, for their help! We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you so very much!!!!

And before I go, I would like to share one  more picture with you. We will call this one CAUTION: MAN AT WORK.
