JB joined my 30-Day August Upgrade Room Challenge because her mom that lived with her was moving to a retirement community. Although sad, the extra space was exciting and had some potential to be made over!
I don’t have BEFORE pics, but here are her AFTER pics! I’m sure she loves the extra space!
In JB’s Own Words
“My mom moved out mid month…giving me a lot of extra room. There is a lot of space which needs working on and I probably won’t be done for years! We don’t have a lot of money for this, but I just used paint, fabric and picture hooks.
Wall #1: I painted a design on my wall, hung a wonderful picture which my Mother-in-law bought on her honeymoon, some new roman shades, and the kitty lounger… The kitty moved right in.
Wall #2: gathered my life’s important stuff, recycled cubes, pictures, a favorite lamp, precious pictures!
Wall #3: rearranged my clothes by colour by type… And, I’m very proud of the pictures: I hung 12 pictures of my boys at various stages in their lives, plus a favorite project from kindergarten.
Wall #4: saved the best for last! Used magnetic paint to frame in family works in progress.”~JB
I’m sure it was sad to see her mom leave for an assisted living facility. But the extra space has got to feel nice! Nice job, JB!
