A Fun House Project

My mom is going to be moving in with us for a little bit because her house is currently on the market so before she jumps into buying  new home we graciously offered her this room...

I know, I know. We are awesome kids. That is what the room looked like the day before Quinn's 1st birthday party. We did manage to clean it up quite a bit, but it still looked awful. Since this room is all by itself downstairs, with a separate entrance to the outside we thought it would be perfect for her and her two pooches. It also has a huge walk in closet and a bathroom (which we also have to redo) right next to it.

We started with flooring, well because flooring is always fun. I didn't care about it really, all I knew was that I wanted something sturdy and easy to clean. Unlike our insanely expensive wood flooring upstairs which dents when you drop a Hershey Kiss. Not really, but I hate it and it's full of dents thanks to a destructive toddler and crazy dog. Anth went to our favorite flooring warehouse and came back with what looked like hard wood flooring, but was actually laminate. 

I am so in love with it, I wish we would have done our entire house with it! And it was pretty easy to put together. Quinn obviously was a huge help.

Next on our list is removing that god awful lighting and painting it a pretty peacock-y blue. I am really loving Martha Stewart's Plumage:

Then some new french doors and that should do it! I figured whenever my mom does move out it can be Quinny's playroom, so it's a win win! And it adds a 5th bedroom to the house for when we sell it. Which I hope is sometime in the next year or two. So let's hope this goes smoothly and we can get it done sooner rather than later!
