Trying to do a major redo of your bedroom is seriuosly not an easy thing with a 9 month old and a 3 year old around the house all day. I wanted this room to be done a couple of years ago. Umm yeah, that didn't even get past the drawing board stage.
So ere's a run down of the schedule of this room:
3 years previous: read a million blogs about how to do board and batten.
2 years previous: buy a new bed and bedding. Get paint swatches that you tape on the wall for the next two years.
1 month previous: buy grey samples and paint the top part, just to see how it would work.
Day one: Paint store is having a killer sale. Figure you better just do this think already. Go buy the paint. Then buy the wood and rip it into strips at Happy Mom's house.
Day two: Sunday, so just play.
Day three: the "real" work can start! Um, nope. Hubby gets sick. Manage to do one coat of primer on the wood and that's it.
Day four (today): Let's try this again . . . Um nope. manage to get the baseboards pried off (that was GROSS under there!). and that's about it.
At this rate I'll be doing the before/after in about 2 months.
But my kids are happy when I play with them. Maybe, just MAYBE I can do a little painting after they go to bed. But I'm not holding my breath.
