The Next Big Thing

We moved into this old house we call home two and a half years ago.  We actually closed on the house on a Wednesday, got married that following Saturday, and promptly left for our honeymoon on Sunday.  It was a whirlwind of activity, but we had big dreams -- (and by "we" here, I mostly me "I"... my husband is much more interested in football than drywall) -- for how we would spend our first year of marriage updating the house and turning it into our nest.

But life had other plans.  A month after our honeymoon, I found out I was pregnant.  

The painting was postponed.

Fast forward to the present.  I have an almost-two-year-old and a house with only 2 out of 7 rooms painted the way I want them.  But that is all about to change.

Since Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth, why not add "repaint," "rearrange," and "renovate" to the mix?

So here is the next big project... The Great Bedroom Switcheroo 2011

(These photos were taken a looooooong time ago when we moved in... currently these rooms are a bit better looking than this -- but not much)

Step 1 -- turn the current Guest Room into the new Master Bedroom.
Here's my vision:

I have the paint samples and intend to pick the color this weekend... then we're off to the races!

Check back soon for an update, and wish me luck!
