The Re-model/decorating went GREAT this weekend.
Paulius and Frank did the hard stuff(ripping out the walls and built-in chest) and I did the other minor stuff.
Taking all that out gave us a good two feet width more in the room. Before we had a king sized bed and a dresser in the room with an 18 inch band of floor between the two. No extra room at all- Wall-to-wall bed and on the other side of the doorway the dresser. Now we have the bead and the dresser but there's room to walk around the bed and believe it or now- we still have a small closet on each side of the head of the bed which works out great because we have LOTS more folding clothes than hanging clothes.
Added bonus of all this remodeling work is Paulius is definitely listening to me more.
Right now the room is done in a jungle/wild animal print theme, but it's going to be changed in a couple weeks to a Royal Blue, Gold, and White/Sun, Moon & Stars theme. I am, after all a Goddess and this would be more fitting to my status.
