Emmy's Room: Before/After

by Rachel Blackburn in

There is nothing quite as satisfying as seeing before and after pictures once a project is complete.  Realizing how far a room came, how much time, effort and money went into it, and enjoying the newness of it all is so much fun!  

We've started on Caden's room, so he and Em are roommates for a little longer.  Decorating will wait until we have more rooms done - I'll post pictures when we get to that.  Pinterest is full of awesome ideas!

Without further ado, Emmy's Room: 

Time/budget: 3 weeks of evenings and Sundays, less than $500.

Still to be done: refinish floor, paint and install baseboards, decorate.

One room down, 8 to go!

Emmy's room is (mostly) done!  Good enough for the kids to move in at least.  All that's left is to finish spray painting the closet doors (more on that in another post), install them, refinish the floor and put in the baseboards.  

It feels AMAZING to be done with our first room!

The kids moved in tonight.  Emmy seemed pleased with her big-girl-bed arrangement, and Caden is looking forward to working on his room.

Michael and I are looking forward to sleep.





- Final tally of odd things found in Em's room -

Telephone wires EVERYWHERE, even up and across the ceiling!

Hooks, hooks, and more hooks.

A wallet-sized photo of Captain Kirk.  Guess that kind of fits us though...


- Total time for this project -

About 3 weeks' worth of Sundays and evenings.
