This week was off to a bang with the first day of school on Tuesday.
Jake started 6th grade so by now he's an old pro.
Alex (with his friend Jared) ...not so much.
There were a few tears from the time he brushed his teeth til the time he got on the bus, but he did good!
The bribe of a Dollar Store visit always helps;)
The boys rooms are just about finished. All of the major work is done, all we need now are the finishing touches like drapery and artwork for the walls.
Alex's room before...
Alex's room after.
Jake's room before...
Jake's room after (with Alex in his bed.)
We let the boys pick their paint color and Alex picked black, which we negotiated until we agreed on a darker blue, and Jake picked a toxic green that I actually really like. It's very Jake!
I am taking my time with all of the junk we removed from the bedrooms and only putting back the things we really love. The house is small and it's easy to have way too much so editing is a must for us. The charity truck has been here for pick up twice in the past week.
As promised here is the dresser I painted for Alex.
Alex loves the number 5.
We chose the same carpet for both rooms and the color they picked covers two walls in their room, the other two walls were painted the same neutral color in both rooms. I thought that with the size of their rooms, the color on all four walls would have been too much, plus it adds a little more interest, especially when you start adding wall art.
And the last thing I promised to share with you was the MESS!!! I'm still working on this room but the entire contents of two little boys rooms including their closets....oh my gosh!
I had anxiety every time I walked in here.
So many books!!
The mess bothered some of us more than others.
Enjoy your day:)
