My Little Room Renovation Project


Our tenant's daughter was using one of the attic rooms as a bedroom, but since she left for college and doesn't need it anymore, I took it over as my home office. I needed my own private space to write and edit in peace. But after years of being used and abused by a teenage girl, the room needed ... a little work.


Before...






I had never done a painting job all on my own before. I've helped painting a few times, long ago, but that's about it. Most of the time, when a room needed painting, I was busy keeping our three young kids away from the paint, so I didn't take part in the painting jobs. But now that they're old enough, I decided to give it a try. I did every step, from spackling to sanding to painting to retouching.


... During ...




I was a little nervous about the results. How would it turn out once all done? Would it be as beautiful as I imagined? Or would it look as a total newbie project? Well, see for yourself. What do you think?


... After!






There's only one problem. Now that my husband knows I can paint, he wants me to finish his numerous unfinished painting projects around the house! What did I get myself into?

I think it looks awesome, Annie! :) I couldn't have done better myself. You sure you didn't just pay a professional to do it and claimed all the glory? haha!!
