Spring Cleaning: Episode 8

While we were looking for houses we decided to look at the higher end of our approved budget so that we could get a 3/2.5.  Our logic behind it is that we did not want to get a 2/2 which is what we actually needed and then 5-6 years from now need to transition into a larger place and not be able to for whatever reason, or if we had an accident, etc.  So in the meantime with the spare 3rd room we turned it into Xavier’s Mancave/Office which is coming in handy while he’s doing his MBA.

This room had the least amount of change!

We completely tore down the closet hangers as they were rotting, and we have an empty closet for now.  We also got rid of the bi fold doors.

we also changed out ALL of the mismatched ugly knobs and switched them out to matching more modern knobs throughout the upstairs.

The end results:

  • We repainted the room with a fresh coat of white
  • changed out the curtains for Zebra Blinds
  • Changed the bi fold doors to more modern glass sliding doors (not pictured) done by My dad and My Husband
  • Added in a light because before it was lit through lamps.  This task was also done by my father.
  • Th Bookshelf, Chair, and Desk were all given to us!
  • The carpet was one Xavier chose and was given to us as a wedding gift
  • My Dog’s bed was also a wedding gift

Spring Cleaning: Episode 7

Of all the rooms in the house, may office is definitely the one that to date (until we redo the kitchen) has seen the biggest make over!

This is the picture that was taken for realtor.com, but what you don’t see are the 3D butterflies, bees, and dragon flies glued to the wall.

So here’s what we did!

office before

  1. We removed the carpet and placed the same laminate that we had matched from the hallway and another room (next blog) for our master bedroom and now my office.
  2. We removed all of the 3D figurines and then painted on 4 thick coats of eggshell ultra white paint to remove the previous paint job
  3. We got rid of the awful curtains and added the more updated zebra blinds
  4. and then of course, turned it into my home office, we are definitely not in need of re-creating another nursery.
