When my dad decided to go into the woodworking business, he needed a bigger shop than just that back room, so he built and shop where the "family room" was going to go.
Soon he needed an even bigger shop! He said he'd move into to front of the garage, and we could have the back as a bedroom and the back room as a closet.
When he and my brother emptied out the back room - Felicity said it looked big enough to be our actual room. At first I was like, "What!? Are you crazy!? Do you know how much stuff I have?"
But we decided that we would have the back room as our room - leaving the whole garage for my dad's shop.
So, my dad and brother built a floor. And we found some random paint laying around and began to paint. We mixed paints and came up with pink for the walls, white for the ceiling, and gray for the floor. (The floor turned out kind of a blue, but I figured it would do that).
And soon we were moving in! =D
|Guys - I have all my stuff where I can get to them!! My books!!! <3|
Well, there you have the "history" of our garage bedroom! :D I'll be doing more posts as we get more moved in - and decorated. We still need shelves for all our books and such. :)
I am enjoying having a place to go when I need time alone. That was especially helpful when we were babysitting six of my little cousins.
Our first night in our bedroom, it was my turn to take care of the "baby".
Jubal is actually two years old, but is like an infant. I fed him his bottle and my sisters went to bed. I walked the bedroom with him. (I was so thankful for a bedroom to walk ;P) At eleven I fed him the rest of his bottle and got him to go to sleep. I put him between me and my sister in our bed, and I fell asleep around eleven-thirty. And that sweet little boy slept till five-thirty!! =D That's a good night for him. ;)
