My dear friends, there are so many home renovation projects I need to post about its not even funny. Almost the entire second floor of our house is finished and I have neglected to say anything about it! So, in my efforts to get caught up, here is the lowdown on our renovation of our nursery!
Back in February of 2009, when we bought our house, we were faced with a lovely old farmhouse with not-so-lovely rooms. There was either floor to floor carpet (even indoor/outdoor carpet in the dining room), or congoleum throughout the house. On all other surfaces (yes that includes the ceilings) there was layer upon layer of wallpaper, minus the dining room that has a lovely drop ceiling. The night we closed on our house we began renovations- we ripped down wallpaper and pulled up congoleum flooring and we've been going ever since.
The room seemed dark due to the wall of wood paneling that we left up, so Kyle framed in the wall, added more insulation, and hung sheetrock to cover it. The result was dramatic, it suddenly felt clean and airy.
We picked out a light green paint for the walls and enlisted my Mom to help paint a mural on the lower portion of the walls.
The only thing left to do is refinish the dresser which I will be turning into a changing table, install a new light, and generally get some additional pieces of furniture and art to flesh out the room. I'll let you in on a little secret, I already refinished the dresser- I'll share that mini-makeover with you soon I promise!
