Carson's new pad~

A long long time ago, as in before we bought this house, my father in law John and my oh so awesome husband Aaron, decided to check out the spare bedroom of the house and saw a little piece of the wall sticking out. The first thing that came to their wonderful minds was to rip it up and see what it was...Well folks, it was 5 layers of wonderful wallpaper! And not the "oh that's kind of pretty" wallpaper. It was the 1950's little people dancing around in the garden wallpaper. At least one layer was! So Introducing....the mess...

We decided that we wanted to move Carson into this room because his set up was just kind of weird. The only way you can get to his room is through the bathroom. So anyone that used that bathroom had to flush and pray he wouldn't wake up. Not a fan of that. So we bought some paint and were hoping to just paint over the little wallpaper there was..til i started to pull on a piece that was pulling up. Oops.

So now what sir? Well we found that at one point they must have had a window in the wall on the first wall picture I showed you. So there was no just sanding and priming. We had to take out that whole wall and replace it with some sheet rock. I remind you, we only had one week til Carson's Birthday Party and my friend coming to stay, in the spare bedroom. So we had to get this done! Well, we did it! So here is Carson's new bedroom!

We are not exactly done with the room yet. The built in shelves I still have to paint the trim white and I am painting the inside...drum roll!! Along with the inside of the closet! We are going to paint orange stripes in the room as well. The color kind of looks blue in the picture but its really a grey color. Aaron put all new carpet in the room himself and did all the sheet rock, taping and mudding himself also. We have a few little things left also like to finish the trim in certain place and getting a light switch cover and putting trim around the window. But its livable and Carson loves his new room!
