Day Five

Day Five

Another long day of working on the new room. It’s going to be great!

I’m glad there’ll be a bed in there so I can fall upon it and sleep for three days after this is all over.

We got it primed (pe-yew!) and then started painting.

I decided to paint stripes on the short wall. I saw the idea here and I knew it was just what our tiny room needed.

Then my floor crew took over while I stayed outside with the power tools.

They’d hand me floor boards through the window and I’d cut ’em. Between cutting their boards I worked on the shelves for the striped wall.

All I had to do was cut the boards to fit the space and attach the brackets where the studs are. I can build a whole room….but I tell you, building those shelves was a mess. I kept making mistakes. It got really frustrating.

I did finally manage.

And we got the floor done.

Tomorrow I have a lot of details to finish. Trim around the floor, ceiling, shelves and the opening between the rooms, touch up paint.

Plus I’ve been instructed that the light is too “girly” for a boys’ room. So I need to change that. Can’t have a girly-light.

Then it’s one more day after that. We still have the exterior to finish.

Next week I need to think about decor. That’s the best part.

It’s like the icing on the cake.

    Ummm, it looks like your shelves are all hanging severly slanted.

    LOL. Just kidding.
