Happy Birthday to Me

Okay one more try and then I have to go clean the house. I have been trying for a few hours to get this posted. In the meantime I have got the office cleaned up some so it has not been wasted time. First Imageshack was giving me problems loading the pictures, and then blogger puked a couple of times so here goes.

I have been off line since Saturday as we have redone the office. With Oops paint, remnant carpet and mostly sale or clearance items (the contact paper was full price) we redid the whole room in well under a $100 - beat that Trading Spaces. I still have to finish (okay start) the curtain panels for the closet door, and what Trading Spaces calls dress the room - pictures up etc. But I have the computer hooked up so that is what counts. I didn't take a before picture but those of you that have been here may remember, purple walls, no curtains, wood shelf.

Megan's room is next, but while I was looking for a twin bed for her I found a very reasonable great loft bed, that had a computer desk where a bottom bunk would go. Found though is a relative term because of course they didn't have any in stock. I have called every Meijer's between Mom's and here and it appears to be a chronic condition. I have been looking on line and a few other places and it has now become a mission to find a bed I can afford for her room. But we picked up purple oops paint yesterday so that part is ready. Now the race is to see what happens first, I find a bed or Megan gets her room clean enough to empty out and paint!

Wow, that rooms looks positively big without a bed, a dresser, a desk, etc. Good job.
