There is no after photo. Yet. So we'll start with the before.
We are in the midst of remaking our kids' room. This little 10 by 10 room has worked hard for us; first holding one little baby, then two, and soon the littlest baby (who's not so little any more) will move in there too. Seeing as we have three kids, the whole redoing of the room is taking time--time being in short supply.
I'm lucky to have a carpenter in the family and not just a carpenter, but one that will drive down and build a bed just because I asked nicely (thanks brother!). So there is a new bunk bed and it's pretty fantastic --I can't wait to show you. And I've slapped some primer up on the wall, because the blue's got to go, but I don't have a particularly grand vision for how the whole room will come together. There are still many bits that need figuring out before the big revel can happen, not to mention getting the bits done.
I was thinking I'd ask you guys for some help along the way. Maybe do some during posts instead of one big Here's the crummy before picture, and holy crap check out the AFTER! post. I think I'm going to paint the room white, because the room is so damn small, but a good white, a warm white. Got any suggestions. I think I might paint the dresser gray, maybe change the handles? Are you up for playing along (while I do the work, ha!)?
