Good Morning everyone.
Hope all you Mother's had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday
all you non-mothers enjoyed celebrating with your mothers.
We had a very quiet day ourselves.
We went to church, then brunch, then spent the afternoon
just enjoying each others company.
Those types of get-togethers are just so relaxing and fun.
I think I enjoy them the most.
A couple of posts ago I was telling you about some changes that
are being made here.
These are room changes involving - not one
All three are being moved and their uses are being reworked
to fit our ever changing needs.
The room above is my and Papa's bedroom when we first moved in
two years ago.
We have really never done anything to it except painted it when we moved in.
(Papa was not thrilled with the baby pink it was painted).
The boxes were removed and the furniture was moved around a bit
no decor - nothing...
I have been working on this room for about two months now trying
to make it a nice relaxing retreat for us.
I felt it had been ignored long enough.
However, this past month we had a sort of family pow- wow
decided things just weren't functioning as we really would like them to.
Our resident 8 year old, Miss A - who lives in this room
has decided it is no longer fitting her "needs".
After all she is growing up !? - according to her....
She requested her room be moved to the loft.
This has been debated previously but, we all felt she just wasn't ready to be up there yet.
Her room is right across from her parents
she feels much comfort in that.
(Or maybe her parents and her grandparents feel much comfort in that ??)
Anyway, after much conversation and consideration
her room was moved to the loft.
This is what was in the loft.
My office - craft space that I dearly loved
it was not functioning well for me either.
I was up where it was quiet to work
it also made me unavailable for whatever was going on downstairs
with the rest of the family.
And, let's face it all you Mothers -
there is always an "urgent" need requiring you to trek down the stairs
while trying to accomplish something upstairs.
So, it was decided that the loft would be incorporated into
This room is my and Papa's bedroom.
I just showed you our new bed linens in this post.
This room had not really made much more headway than the new linens
incorporating the office furniture into the room
was much easier than I thought it would be.
I have been able to add the office in a way that I am loving.
I will be posting more of that soon.
Now, what happened to that empty room?
Well, it is being changed into something the whole family agreed that we need
at this time in our lives.
It is definitely a work in progress as you can see.
A partially put together exercise machine to start off our
new get healthy regimen.
We have been working on trying to eat healthier and get more exercise
with Papa and I being of a particularly older age
the working out in the summer here at the beach is most unbearable for us.
So, T decided that we would put together a home gym
to help us all out.
No need for us to be out in the heat and humidity at all.
We can get our strength training and our cardio in the comforts of air conditioning.
None of these rooms are finished - it's much like moving
I honestly think it would have been easier to just
move into another home than do all of this.
What it has done though is caused all of us to do some
very much needed purging and organizing - think Spring cleaning on a major level.
We definitely have lots to do over the next few months
and, of course,
we decided to start this just when its
time to work on the outdoor projects.
So, I am trying to balance out all the work and get things done as
quickly and easily as possible.
Have you ever made major room changes all at once?
