Before & After Pics

Most of you have already seen some of these, but for those who have not, here are some before & after pictures of our house.

The carpet was finally installed today-yay! So now we can start moving actual furniture.
Hopefully Saturday night we'll be sleeping there.

Boys' Bedroom: Before
Boys' Bedroom: After
We let Aidan choose his room colors to help get him excited about the move.
At that time it went from becoming Aidan's room to the boys' room. We were not planning on them sharing a room, but Aidan really wants them to. We figure we'll try it out, hope it works well, and the 3rd bedroom will be a playroom/guest room.

3rd bedroom/Playroom: BeforePlayroom: After

OK, when choosing the color for the playroom, our goal was a light orange-peach shade. I found something in the color samples that seemed lighter. The brightest orange was called "bouncing ball", and this is not that. This is much brighter than we were expecting. It's grown on us, though. Keep in mind it's a playroom...

The next two aren't before & after, but they show our backyard.


It's hard to tell in these pictures, but Aidan is out there playing. :) Fortunately this was before the foot of snow that we got!
There ya go. Now all we need to do is move in! lol
Oh, and for the playroom I have some room wall stickers that will be going up. And of course we're getting curtains.

So what do you think?

It looks great! I love the boys' room- what a fun border and colors! And that backyard looks great- I'm sure the swingset will get a lot of use.

Wow Sharon! You guys have been so busy. It looks fabulous. I'm so excited for you. When will you be moving in? Once this stupid snow goes away? We have so much too, it's just awful. I hate snow!!!!!I love your bedroom color, it looks similar to my computer/tv/whatever the heck this room is. =)

Hey -- maybe Aidan is wanting to keep the other bedroom open for a baby sister?!
