discovering my inner Martha

This plan has been in my head for a couple of years and now it is becoming a reality.
We are re-doing our bed room and are anxious to see the final results which are still a few days/weeks away, but here is the progress to date.....
(Sorry, no 'before' pictures so just visualize ugly and outdated in your head)

Actually, I found a couple of pictures to use as 'before' pictures, so you don't have to trouble yourself with visualing. Here is ugly and out dated before your eyes.

Old bed and "window treatement"

original window trim

Current state..........

New Bed
New doors-trimmed but unpainted Windows decently trimmed and ready for public consumption
This is the schematic for the wall unit that will be built on the bed wall

Knock list still remaining:
wall unit installed
trim to be finished
bedding to be found/bought
shower curtain and rug for bathroom

There have been many fun and rewarding experiences this year.
I am not a great photo documenting type person, but here is a representative
example of some of the best things in life.

The Five (so far) Grandkids.
5 wiggly kids + 100 photos = 1 usable shot
you can still see how amazing adorable they are!
