Tackle It Tuesday #3 - Guest Room Conversion

Wow! Sometimes you don't realize how bad something is until you see a picture of it.

Well, it's official! I am kicking my husband out of the last room (the only room) he had. He does still have the garage, but that's at least a couple of months of "tackling"!

It is all for a good cause. We are blessed to have my mother coming to stay with us when the baby arrives. She has agreed to stay for a few months so we are going to make her a very comfortable bedroom. Before that can happen there is lots to do:

  • Obviously, clear out the room. Everything from computer pieces to bike parts. I am told all these various parts will eventually turn into a bicycle.
  • Order window coverings.
  • Order bedding.
  • Order lamps.

I have all the furniture I need - just a matter of finding the right layout.
I think that's it. Mom, is there anything else you need? I am also planning to put a rocking chair in the room - you know - just in case!

We are expecting my mom the middle of March. I have some time to make it as nice and comfortable as possible.

What a fun project! That'll be great to have your mom there for you with a new baby. And so nice that she can stay for awhile. I look forward to seeing how the room turns out. Have fun!
