The finishing touches are finally done and this room is FINISHED (for now)! Holla! It feels good to be a
gangster completer (is that a word?)! Again, HOLLA!
Here is what was the #1 ugliest item that we HAD to get rid of:
The fan! Oh gosh, it is, was, so dang ugly! Such an eye sore! Thankfully, it’s loooooong gone. It has been replaced with this:
Such an improvement if I do say so myself! And we are loving the simplicity of this great ceiling lamp from Ikea (plus the price tag was great too).
Some further improvements were finishing the baseboards (painting and caulking really bites) and installing the mini bookshelves for the boys (by their beds) and the new reading/task lamps, also from Ikea.
We also put up those glow in the dark stars that I promised we’d do (from the mood board here)
And to top off the glow-in-the-dark-funess (and to hide the poor cutting-in paint job that I did, making dark grey marks on the white ceiling…shhhh) I took some glow in the dark duct tape and went around the perimeter of the room…. fun stuff that glow in the dark duct tape!
I think the boys love this new room as much as I do! Gasp, it’s fun and totally functional!
And one last shot of the room, without that hideous fan….
That’s all for now folks!
Enjoy your day!
