On a not so recent (hint, we need to do that again)day out with my longtime buddy, I got a dreaded, gasp, oh no, phone call. No it wasn't an accident, speeding ticket or death in the family, although I've had all of these this year. It was a full on sweaty palms "I NEED DETAILS" call.
Curtis and Asha are switching bedrooms and we are painting and we are...........I don't remember the rest as I interrupted with "WHAT COLOR?!!!!!!
My calm, collected, sweet heart, husband who is thinking "I've got this all under control and you are off on a day out relaxing, why do you need to know" nicely replies "It's a surprise"
Seriously? The queen of HGTV watchers is being told to chill and have some patience. Which of course I DIDN'T as my friend could attest.
So this prompted today's blog when she told me she still hadn't seen the color choice.
9am when I left, Asha's room looked like this
I returned around midnight to this being Curt's room.
They gutted it, the DI made out in a big way that day. They prepped painted and had the whole room put together before I got home. Both kids slept peacefully in there beds and the floors were vacuumed an all.
This was there color choice. They did a flat gloss split of the same color so when the light hits it looks really cool. They even mounted everything and changed out all the plug thingies to look industrial. He's still waiting for the John and concrete bed, well it does look a bit like a cell in this picture. We believe in helping our kids transition into adulthood. Actually, I meant a shelf and some picture frames to go up. It actually looks very lofty which was the plan.
This was what his room, now Asha's room, looked like when the holes were filled.
If you can't see there was a hole just about every 4inches.
Anyway, we have finally started Asha's room. It's a big deal since we are building a loft bed with a stage and lighting and curtains that open when you pull the string and an escalator to get up to the bed..... jk. This is Asha's request and since she drew a quite detailed picture, I feel at least obliged to execute some of that plan. (bed, curtains, lights :)
She chose the color and even enlisted a buddy to help. She asks everyday when will it be done (HINT DADDY) so who knows maybe when curt's shelf is up, maybe when we finish our garden project, maybe when monkeys fly out..... you know what I mean.
