After months of waiting...

Our bedroom has finally finally finally been re-done.

Here is a before:I went through this phase where I wanted a brown wall in my bedroom. At first I liked it, although the green was much mintier than I thought from the swatch. I never liked the green, I lived with it.I tired of the brown, like 3 years ago. It made it hard, with the green, to find bedspreads and such.We also had some drywall damage from before we replaced the roof, so that needed to be fixed.

I came home Friday and my house looked like this:See the baseball bat in the basket on the dresser? That is a new addition to the bedroom. Lee is in total papa bear mode. Now that we are "with child" - we have upgraded our alarm, there is a huge shot gun (no bullet in the barrell and zipped in a case mind you) under the bed, and now a baseball bat. Lee is Papa Bear.
Lilly was pretty disturbed for the entire 24 hours that we had the house disrupted.
We also had to pile a lot of mess into the guest room as well...At the end of the bed is our old coffee table that we are getting rid of, plus misc crap found in the bedroom when it had to be cleared out. This room is already the "throw in there and shut the door" room until August when it's cleaned out and transformed into Baby Nash Central.

Now - we had to sleep somewhere Friday night because our bedroom looked like this:So we decided to have a slumber party in the living room.
Lee waited until I was 100% asleep to declare that sleeping in the living room SUCKS and we needed to move into the guest room.
Wait - that bed is covered in crap.
So we moved it all.
Ask this tired, cranky, pregnant person how much she enjoyed being woken up and put to work...
Finally, around noon the next day, the room was ready to put everything back. When they went to move the bed, the footboard detached and we found Teddy's stash:
A good 15 chewies had been shoved so deep that even changing sheets had not disturbed his bones. I am sure his plans were foiled when he realized he couldn't get to them once he stashed them... Everyone laughed for 10 minutes at this discovery.

Now if we could only find the sock stash...

We had people coming over in 30 minutes to watch the soccer game so once all the furniture was moved back, I moved around like crazy to get the bedroom pretty and the rest of the house out of utter chaos mode.Now the bedroom is a nice refreshing gray with new crown molding and a stark white painted ceiling. We laid in bed this morning just "wow" at how clean and fresh it looks. I am now on the hunt for art for the walls (with touches of red like that pillow in it) to bring the room together.

Donald liked the room, but he liked the rice crispy treat from Central Market more...
Donald was rooting for England - so we made him eat this USA treat.
He was distraught as you can tell.

Tonight I am making a pot roast for dinner and Tony and Tiffanie are coming over. She herself is "with child" (4 weeks behind me) so I am sure we will talk pregnancy and babies and nurseries.
Now off to the store...

Poor Donald! LOL. I love the new room. You will do awesome on the baby's room. And I am so sorry you gagged in front of the hot firement!

OK...seriously...I've read this twice and all I keep thinking about is how your shot gun is in a bag under the bed...and when you mean there isn't a bullet in the barrel, there is one in it correct? It just needs to be cocked, right??? Sorry....this is what my husband has turned me into. I way more fond of guns and cars than I should be. Why not keep the shotgun where the bat is? lol! We litterally have 3 loaded guns place around our bedroom ready at anytime,(one being a shotgun) and one in the living room. We're nuts!!! LOL!

The gray looks great - really makes the room look bigger.

Teddy!!! You spoiled his stash/nest - now he'll have to make or find another one!
