The Bonus Room Is Finally Usable Again


The bonus room is mostly finished except I still need to paint the door that has just gotten dirty over the years. I was supposed to make this room over last year, but never got around to it. It was one of those things that I kept putting off because it was such a big undertaking. Once Mr. Savvy suddenly said I'll help paint this room if we do it today, which was a few weeks ago, I jumped in the car to go get the paint. It wasn't my plan that day, but hey, I'm not turning down help. He said this after we had taken lots of stuff out of here.

It looked like this after I cleaned it out the first time a few years ago, but of course over time it was piled back up and I didn't take a new picture. You couldn't even see the table from all the stuff on it. It was time for this table and chairs to go and for the big yellow table leaning against the wall to go plus a whole lot more. We took two pick up truck loads and a few loads in my suv, too to the consignment store and Goodwill. It felt so good just to clean the room out.

The walls were in poor condition so they were patched and sanded. Then we painted the walls and ceiling in French Canvas by Benjamin Moore the same color in the kitchen and a guest room.You can see part of one of the florescent lights that were removed and the new light on the floor. 

Are you ready for the after?

 Hopefully I can get some decent photos of it with the poor lighting and share them with you tomorrow!

Sorry for the teaser. 😁
