Closet demo: Part 2

8.18.2009

Well...the worst part is over. Thank goodness! After 4+ hours of demolition, lots of coffee (with 2 spilt cups), snacks, spats, 5 gallons of spackle, 6 full bags of garbage, scratches, bumps and bruises and 2 weekend assignments later and we are done! The only thing left to do is have the floor fixed and build the storage units. (that is the easy part though)!


This is what we started with as a reminder...


After all the new trim was made from approximately 5 pieces of smaller trim to re-create what was there, we were able to start painting!


Oh... how i love to tape



This is mid paint, getting rid of the awful shade of yellow




So, the moment we have all been waiting for....
As another reminder, Christopher mumbling i'm quite sure, although he never really came out with it..."what the hell were we thinking?"


Ta-dah!



The new trim

I have to give Christopher all (OK most) of the credit for the trim. I helped him design it to mimic the old 95 year old stuff, but he used his fun new corner cutting thingie to actually do the work. Kuddos to him!


Here is the crib (yes... filled with my purchases so far) on the wall. We both love the paint color and the crib in there more than we thought!


So, now the fun begins of decorating!


The last piece after getting the floor fixed is putting in the closet system. We have been comparing product at IKEA and Walmart so far as well as Lowe's. We haven't made a final decision, but this is sort of what we have come up with for organizing.




I have lots of ideas swirling around in my head and i can't wait to share! Christopher says our child is going to be one spoiled baby.. i like to call it "well loved."

Have a terrific Tuesday all!
