Fall Cleaning - Day 2 {Grace's Room}


All right!!!! I feel like it's been forever since I originally posted about the Office/Nursery Makeover. However...it is FINALLY done!!! WOOHOO!!!!! (well...it still needs a few finishing touches, like stuff on the walls, but...in the big picture...it's DONE!!!!) Anyway, I thought I'd show you the before, during and after shots all together...I just LOVE before and after shots that are this different! (on a side note, not sure why my after shots are such poor quality. Sorry.)


Ok, the two photos above are the room looking to the right when you walk in the door. We had the crib, rocking chair, changing table, and two speakers all jammed in there...along with misc. other things!

And below is the top of that same wall....with the weird paneling and nasty sponge painting and not so girly boarder.


Now ready for the after?



Here it is! The walls are white and we just have the crib, a trashcan and changing table there now. (and a way cute little girly chillin' in the crib!)


This is the before looking straight into the room from the door. Yup, it was crazy cluttered and crammed.




Above and below are during shots. I thought I was just going to be taking down boarder and painting...but when I got the boarder down I discovered a huge gap between the boards at the top and drywall....so I ended up having to mud and sand a TON of the room...and probably should have done even more of it!


and finally....




The after!!! I just LOVE walking into her room now. (and really the pictures are a FAR cry from how good it looks IRL.) I've got some canvases and things I'm working on for the walls...I'll show you those once they're done, but all in all I LOVE how this turned out!!!
