Old & New- Walls, Dressers & Floor


Pictured above is how the room looked when we
bought the house. Ugh

But then...













































HUGE, MASSIVE THANK YOUs
 for our many friends who
helped out in various ways as we redid
this room:
- rip out old carpet & 4 million staples
- strip horrid wallpaper
- rip off strange tile that was under carpet
- sand furniture
- tape the room for painting
- lay NEW flooring! (Friends did 100% of this job)
- Drill holes for new drawer pulls

( I learned alot from these projects and
still have a fascination for power tools,
though my knowledge has only
grown slightly!)

THANK YOU, FRIENDS, for sharing
your time & giftings with us.
We LOVE this little room!
We LOVE YOU MORE!

Wow! I haven't seen the finished product, looks wonderful! I have never redone furniture, but always wanted to, it just looks so fresh. The red paper had a slight cool factor, but not once they applied it to every surface and inch of the ceiling, Haha!
