A few months ago Doug and I decided it was time.
Time to split up the boys and give Nathan his own room.
They are 8 1/2 years apart.
This was inevitable.
We've discussed what we're going to do.
We did a furniture scope at Ikea at Thanksgiving.
Found some great ideas for him.
And now...all because Nathan gets his own room
I have to.....
1. Re-organize and clean up my room a bit.
Go through my scrapbook mountain and re-organize,
downsize and move all of it into my room. eeeeek!
Desk and all. Doug can't wait for all this.
2. Clean out the spare bedroom of said scrapbook nightmare,
Clean out closet in spare bedroom of storage stuff (half of it anyway)
Move futon out of spare bedroom into playroom and get rid of sicko couch.
3. Paint spare bedroom for Jack.
Move everything out of boys room to spare bedroom to give Jack a new room.
Move part of closet organizer out of boys closet into spare bedroom for Jack.
4. Paint boys room for Nathan
Buy furniture from Ikea and put it together (which obviously will involve a trip).
Finish up Nathans room.
Everyone happy...except the girls who wonder why they can't have their own room!
Cause we don't live in a freakin' mansion!
On the bright side of this nightmare list of things to do is this...
I have already moved my scrap stuff into the bedroom.
It has taken me all week to go through, clean out and move.
But it's done.
I have decided what color to paint Jacks room (which is next on my list of things to do)
Well, actually the spare bedroom looks like a bomb hit it about now.
But colors have been chosen and that is big!
Jack will be keeping all the bedding and such the boys have had
I"m just going to actually finish it up with decor.
Which I have also figured out and am excited about.
Nathan finally found the bedding he wants.
So we have a color scheme to go with that now too.
It's going to feel so good to have all of this done.
Our goal is within 2 months to be done.
Hopefully the boys will be able to keep their rooms cleaner
with the rearranging that we are doing.
AND....future guests....listen up!
You won't have to sleep on the futon anymore!
Nates gettin' a queen bed he'll gladly offer up when you come!
I think I'm exhausted!
