Guest Bedroom

Hello again!  I feel like I am on a roll, two posts in one day?!?  Crazy!  Welp, back in May Eric started tearing the guest bedroom apart.  Back when it looked like this:


The ceiling was very similar to what it looked like in the office.  That lovely whipped cream texture.

Eric spent so much time smoothing out the ceiling and then by the time school got out it was my turn.  I began ripping out the carpet which revealed so much carpet pad stuck to the cement slab.


They.  Used.  So.  Much. Glue.  I ended up using a wiggle cutter/oscillating tool to cut the pad off.  Then my dad and I used this chemical to soak the pad and loosen the glue so we could scrape it off.


Once the pad was off, I primed and painted the floor and then Eric and I tackled the wallpaper “feature wall”.


I have never wallpapered before, luckily Eric has and he happens to be a patient person… so we got it done easy squeezy with minimal swearing.


After we got the trim painted and installed, I (yes thats right, me-Jo) installed the light fixture which is why the chair is under it… I am scared it will fall off the ceiling.  Gravity and I don’t get along.


Then I spray painted a bed frame.


Then I decorated which is my favorite part! So get ready for it… drum roll please….


Ta-da!  Guest bedroom!





Hooray!  So we are now taking reservations!

Thats all for now!
