It actually took me a whole week to accomplish - which is like 6 months in Amy time - leading to many a night up till 2:00am with thoughts of projects yet to finish or start for that matter.
Task one - repaint. The room was pink - yes I said pink - and at the time I painted it I thought that was a splendid color. My husband has never been so excited to paint anything in his entire life. He HATED the pink. The room is now sporting cream and dark brown walls and my husband is much much happier.
As I said, space for children was the needed addition, so after several long, cold hours at the Builders Material Outlet I found some things to make myself a great kids bunk that wouldn't take up too much space. And my other most hated thing about the previous room was Eric's old college fridge in the corner, full of refreshments for entertaining that needed to be camouflaged. A little breakfast nook and extra cabinet door took care of that problem. Now all we need are some guests to test it out!
