This is what is looked like this morning.
Annie's long lost ring she had gotten from nama Joyce! How did it get under the bedpost? hmmm....
By the end of the day, I had moved our bed over, moved one dresser, found a perfectly matching lamp that I had stored away downstairs, found an old stand to use as a night stand, and brought up one of our extra chairs to sit in the corner. TJ painted two old white shelves and turned them brown, I found the flowers that I have always loved but had to be put in storage because there was no room for them downstairs anymore. I set them on my dresser and presto! I love looking at them! The only thing I ended up buying was two king size blue pillow covers, and a few decorations from Hobby Lobby (which were all 50 percent off!)
While the kids were still gone, I started on their room. I emptied out everything. I found little lego pieces under Thomas' mattress and between the wall and his bed, broken crayons, fish food pellets, you name it. The kids have never really had a comforter set, so I found two greenish comforters, light blue sheets and bought four new pillows. Nice squishy down alternative pillows! TJ came home for lunch and was looking at the room and said, "why don't I paint one wall blue since we have the paint left over from the kitchen?" I so love how my husband gets involved in my projects. He's always ready and willing to help in some way. Rarely do I have to convince him to, he just enjoys it.
After dinner, TJ and Thomas went upstairs to paint. It turned out awesome!
How does your room look? Do you experience a sense of delight when you walk in? -SBB
Absolutely. Delight is the right word. It's amazing what a little cleaning, paint, and moving of objects can do to change the surroundings we look at every day.
