instead of building a room

we will paint two! lol

For over a year we've been thinking we would build a bedroom downstairs for Katelyn in the basement. And then it hit us... why don't we just put Samantha and Cameron in the same room until we move into a bigger house? Katelyn could have her old room back, and paint is much cheaper than a building permit, lumber, and escape window, and new carpet. Total of paint & supplies: $99.24

We cleared out Samantha's room last night, she was so upset. She was kicking her bed and crying, not understanding why it was not in her bedroom. We explained we were painting her room.. and that she would be able to help (ayiyiyi..) and she calmed down. Sam & Cam slept ok in his room last night. Today I'll be scraping the princess border off and priming. I guess I should mask the borders and stuff since I'm a messy painter. Her room will be in MY favorite color.. limeade!! oh yeah!

Here's a before shot!

Doug woke up this morning sick with probably a sinus infection, so I'm not sure how much we will get completed today. I hope he gets up soon and gets the scraper for me.. like I could find anything in his garage *eye roll*
