We have our first completed room in the house — Thomas’s room! No longer is he sharing the guest room or sissy’s closet — he finally has his very own space and his very own closet! His room is simple and cozy and I love it so much!
So this is what we started with — beige walls, broken blinds, a boob light and dirty carpet.
The first thing we did was paint the walls Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams. I had planned to have it cut by 50% but forgot to tell the painters and came by one day and the room had already been painted…and the color was beyond perfect. I am so glad we went full strength by accident! This paint color is my favorite in the house!
After the room was painted we replaced the ugly yellow boob light (never photographed) with a white ceiling fan and added a soccer ball pull chain so I could operate the fan (short people problems). We also had the carpets professionally steam cleaned and I couldn’t believe the transformation — they looked brand new afterwards!
And now for the finished room…
I am most proud of this little room because we re-used almost everything we already had to create it. The only things we purchased were a dresser and curtain rod.
A few of Tom Tom’s favorite books right now.
Caroline helped us pick out two pieces of artwork to frame. Naturally, she picked the art she created and then gifted them to Thomas. And she makes sure to remind him every time we’re in there that she made those!
And just to keep it real — I snapped
this picture shortly after getting Thomas out of his bed this morning so
you could see what his room really looks like…(yes, that’s a dirty diaper that hasn’t made it to the trash can yet)…
Ta-da! Our first completed room in the new house!
