House Renovations – Third Bedroom

I’m back at it again with the house renovations. This project has been going on for six years, and has included redoing both bathrooms, ripping out the whole kitchen, and replacing the carpets in the whole house with tile and laminate flooring. And it’s not done yet!

The latest leg of this project is to redo the third bedroom. Years and years ago, when our niece Keirra was 2, she came to live with us for a bit, so we fixed up the room for her. We painted it sky blue and put fluffy white clouds everywhere. Then she moved out, and the room became little more than a storage unit. Even as we had two kids of our own, we just blocked it off and piled our junk in there, including two cats that had trouble finding the litter box. So it’s an understatement to say that the room needed work.

But now we’re clearing it out, painting, and finally putting down laminate flooring. It’s a lot of work, but it will pay off with a third bedroom that we can actually use!

And don’t even mention the upcoming Labor Day weekend. I have floor projects all over the house that need to be done, and I’m not looking forward to it. At all.
