Before and After

When we bought this house we knew we would want to do a few things to make it fit our family.  Some projects will have to wait, but one we just finished!  Well, it is nearly finished.

This is a picture of the area between Addy and Morgan's bedrooms upstairs, how it looked when we bought the house.  Addy's room is to the left and Morgan's is behind to the right, and straight ahead is the laundry room.  A nice area, but pretty noisy to be a playroom or study since it has wood floors and is open to the rest of the house.  So we decided to make it Lucas's bedroom instead.



The closet still needs to be finished and the door needs a doorknob but otherwise it's done and to us it looks like it was always part of the house!

At the far end of the hallway upstairs is the laundry room.  The opening straight ahead used to be a door to an open staircase that led to the garage.  We moved that door to the top of the stairs to close it off and made it more of a hallway from the laundry room to the bonus room over the garage.

This is a before picture of the bonus room before we moved in (with the previous owner's things).  Hard to tell from the picture but the color was UGLY.

So we painted the bonus room a greenish-blueish-grayish color and changed the lights to recessed lighting.  We still have major organizing to do in there, but I think we are going to enjoy that room much more!

Lucas was having fun with the chalkboard wall :)
