We boxed up the 50,000 photos (will work on those later...), the 20 years of sports and entertainment paraphernalia, and anything else that needed to be out of the room, 'er, thrown out, that is. It's amazing how much work goes into redoing a room, or really, most anything as we can all attest to. It's always more time...and in our case, more paint. It started with son Ryan asking if I could touch up a small spot on the wall...well, we all know how that turned out, the entire room was repainted; trim and all, much to his delight.
But, let's be honest, the work was worth the effort in seeing the smile on Ryan's face when walls were painted, the new floors were installed, and a fresh start on a room that he spends most of his time in (including his office desk for now) has begun. A new era for our "back office."
Photos of the "new" room and Ryan's joy of it finally done (he's been asking since January for us to work on it...)
