When we bought our house in December 2012, we knew we had a lot of work to do. Thankfully, we received a great deal of help from friends and family and were able to finish a majority of the house in just a few months. We didn’t take the time/energy/money to do the rooms we weren’t going to be using, including the bedroom that will become our baby’s room.
This is what it looked like when we bought it:
Lovely, right? It has affectionately been known to us as “the pink room” and I can’t wait for it to have a new name. “______’s room”
The transformation began on April 19, 2014 when we were able to re-finish the hardwood floors in that room. We had done the rest of the house over a year ago, but the pink room became the storage area for all of the furniture that went in the other rooms during the process and we couldn’t really do these floors. We didn’t think we’d be using this room for a while…
Now the floors look great and are protected by thick paper so that we can continue the renovation process!
Brennan removed the wallpaper border last night, and we’ll be patching/repairing the walls over the next couple of days. On Sunday a heavy coat of primer will be applied (thanks to some wonderful friends!) and then some fresh paint next week (thanks to my Mom who is coming all the way from California to help us prepare the room).
The preparation of her room is making this feel more and more real – in three months we’ll have a new family member!
