No More Construction Zone

We are finally done with the renovations of the baby's room! I debated on posting about this but then I read Janet's post today and decided to go for it. I have definitely found myself shying away from blogging lately because I am/was afraid of how they would make people feel. I know readers have the choice to skip posts but there have been times where I decided to not post rather than have readers skip what I am writing.

Today I am sharing with you the transformation of the guest room into the baby's room. When I looked at the before and after pictures I was in awe of all that we did. It was definitely behind schedule, but the results were worth it...I can't say well worth it because of the stress and tears it caused!

This is pretty picture heavy! (the alignment of the pictures is all over the place...sorry about that! not sure what blogger was doing to them!)


No more rug:

 Some of the walls are down...no more popcorn ceiling:

All the paneling is gone...old insulation:

Putting in the new insulation:

New walls and new ceiling:

 Trying to decide on a paint color:

 Decision made, Benjamin Moore Cayman Blue:

New hardwood floors (Not an easy installation for the contractor):

 New ceiling fan...they were not joking when the instructions said could take a few hours to install:

Finished product :) Next is adding the furnishings...hopefully tomorrow night, tonight we'll be cleaning the floor.

    1. Thank you!! :) We are super happy with the new look.

  2. You guys did such a fantastic job on that room. I love everything about it and especially the floors

  3. FINALLY getting to catch up with you! Love seeing the reno pics... are you guys gonna aim for a Belize/Caribbean theme at all? The blue reminds me of the ocean and the fan looks like it might be kinda tropical, too (although my eyes aren't that great). :)

    1. That's exactly what we are going for. :) We have art work and a wall hanging that we bought while we were in Belize to add to theme and LOTS of pictures that we've taken. :)

  4. Oh this is great! I can't wait to see once you have everything. I agree with YeahScience that it is very oceany and fresh. Great color and I love the floor. Well done :)
