Leah's Room

Here are a couple of pictures of Leah's room. My mom has been working really hard to get it all done before Leah comes home on Friday for the Thanksgiving break. The pictures aren't great but this is what she's done so far:

  1. Painted the room
  2. Pulled up the old carpeting
  3. Cleaned and treated the wood floors
  4. Installed new quarter round for the molding
  5. Installed new saddles for the closet doors
  6. Sold her old dressers and desk
  7. Moved in a large dresser from another room
  8. Got new bedding & lamp shades & pillows
  9. Made new window treatments
  10. Installed new wooden blinds
  11. Ordered a "sleeper" chair
    Whew! Too bad we don't have a before picture because it's hard to appreciate how bad the room looked before. Leah wants my mom to wait until she gets home to hang up the "artwork" and to buy an area rug. We'll post some final pictures after that is done.

That is just beautiful.. We did the wood floors upstairs a few years ago and all the painting.. Mom and Dad are making big messes but the whole upstairs turned out really nice. Mom enjoyed helping Dad with the floor. She said it was like a puzzle putting it all together. The sanding was the hardest part but really worth it..

Pedro,
I did see the room before and it doesn't look a thing like it! Your Mom did a beautiful job, and she has the blisters to prove how hard she worked!
Leah is a lucky girl!

Pee Ess: How is Libby doing? PooPoo had a big pee and poo explosion today while mom was out working.....we think Bear was taunting her through the bathroom door!

Pedro!!!!!!!!!!!! My mom is such a tired ding dong!!!!!!!!! She got you confused with Rambo....and realizes and knows that MM lives with Rambo and not you. My mom needs to sleep more. Sorry we got you mixed up. You are 3 of my most favorite "little" dawgs, you know!

Leah said...

I am so excited to see my room tomorrow!!!
I think it's funny how you tried to hide the fabric you used for the window treatments from me...not thinking I would look here.

well I did :)
LOVE IT AND I LOVE YOU!!!!

oh, I *didn't* write what I was thinking--or it didn't come out the way I meant it--that your Mom is awesome at redecorating--I've never known a handier woman! I bet Leah is home now so y'all are having awesome fun and won't be online? And Pedro, please ask your Mom to tell me, how did she *make* the curtains??? Has she been hising a sewing talent from me? 'Cause I have a sewing machine that I need to learn how to use...?

dementatedakini said...

hising? what the heck is hising? Hiding, I meant. Duh...sometimes we northeast badgers ain't so smart. Ayuh.
