Bedroom #3

Ah yes. This was my favorite room when we moved in. I especially liked the flowery border wallpaper.

Natalie did not.

And here's some of my shoddy photography to show our progress. We've just finished painting all of the bedrooms, hung blinds, and just measured for carpet. I can't believe we're going to be able to sleep in our bedroom again soon...

Our Life for the Past Month

1. We have been priming all of the bedroom walls and trim, and installing .75" reclaimed red oak strip wood flooring.

2. Here is the current cost outline for our entire back-of-the-house project (four bedrooms):
  • $500 for paint+primer+brushes+rollers+etc. (4 bedrooms, hallway, entry way)
  • $175 for 100 square feet of hardwoods
  • $15 for nails and staples for hardwoods
  • $38 to rent flooring stapler
  • $150 for drywall supplies/tools
  • $30 for sandpaper
That makes a grand total of $908. We've also spent a little here and there for various tools, but I will be using those for the rest of my life, so I won't include them.

3. Thank you to our friends Justin, Annie, Katy, Sarah, Anna, Mark, Crawford, Rachel, Chris, David and Bonnie for the help!

4. We did timelapse through the whole project. Surprisingly, you can't see my butt crack even once! I'm very proud.
