It's time. It's definitely time to return our master bedroom into a nice relaxing oasis of tranquility and calm (and, hopefully, a string of good solid night's sleeps!). It's been 20 years since we moved into our house and this room is one of the last to be "updated." It helps immensely when a great friend (and former college roommate) offers to come out for the week and help start the process moving. How could I resist? The "work" may not be all fun and games, but with music from our college days, stories to share, and updates on our lives, the hours slip by with the transformation now officially underway! It seems the worse thing so far was removing the "stinky" carpeting due to 20 years worth of three canines fur and dirt (let's face it, dogs can be quite dirty but still very lovable!).
A run to the landfill (all that carpeting has to go first thing in the am) and painting are in the immediate future for us and we can't wait to start!
A big heartfelt Thank You to Jodie Smith (who says she actually loves this type of "work") on coming East to help with Phase 1. (Phase 2 is the bathroom...later this spring/summer).
Some before pics and Jodie hard at work!
