Weekend Update... More Of "Ahh That Feels Better"

Before:

After:
Don't mind those drying sweaters. Once we finish this room tonight I'll change the pictures out. The color of this room is not one we chose... do not judge. It's more like the top picture than the bottom.

The other side of the room has my desk (cleaned off) and two closets. We still have my small Hoosier baking cabinet in here and that is going down to the basement tonight. More pictures later.
And for those of you worried about the shared desk situation... problem solved:

Sucks to be you, Mr F (don't worry about him it's warm by the furnace)

Girls' Room:
Sadly, I do not have a before shot. You've probably seen it before. Mr F and I love this room but usually it looks like a cyclone just went through it. I got rid of 3 circle area rugs and moved the bigger rag rug. I got rid of 2 huge pink stuffed animal bins and replaced them with 3 under the bed storage containers on rollers (they were $9.99 each and they are slightly taller than typical yet less deep so they fit easily side by side perpendicular to the bed frame). One has the majority of their dress up stuff. Remember the dress up corner behind the door?... yes... we needed to minimize that for showings. Gone also is their pink dress up chest. So some serious decluttering went into this room and it looks fantastic.

The rug in the spare room is awesome! Looking good Mrs. F!

P/F,
Thanks! We just ordered it from Amazon. It's an indoor/outdoor rug. It's huge and it's not that hard kind. We're pleasantly surprised. We didn't want to invest in a rug that wouldn't work in another house and figured getting a rug that could also be used with our patio stuff or under my exercise equipment was a good move. But it ended up being really attractive and I would use it in our office at our new house (when we get one!). It was only $99 and we got free shipping! Score! This is the same rug in brown print I would have actually gotten this one but it was a little more... it looks like mine is gone.

Yeah, love the rug, and it's huge!
And I don't think the paint color is bad at all. I don't know, myabe it's worse in real life?
The number bedding is totally cute.

WOW.
You guys have really gotten a LOT done this weekend!

Mrs Furious said...

inkelywinkely,
thanks :)

katieo,
it's a strange sallowy flesh color. It looks better with the white bed to off set it some.
the number bedding is from Ikea... I think it was like $9.


just called a realtor... kind of want to throw up. I really hope this works out and we don't lose any money.

looks great I love the rug as well. Way to go. I wish my weekend had been as productive instead of being in jammies all day oh well.

Mrs Furious said...

LOL at "Sucks for you, Mr. F."

It looks awesome. I love the girls' room.

Mr Furious said...

Don't forget a gigantic 20 by 20 screened-in porch!

Mrs Furious said...

Mr F,
word. And that!
And a first floor laundry... AND SEVEN CLOSETS!

And the fact that we lived in it... that alone has to increase the house value. ;)

wait a minute, i'm confused, i thought you were staying?????

Mrs Furious said...

lindalou,
We're putting our house up on the market (hopefully end of the week) but we're hoping to not move before June. It's a good time to get on the market and we need to get out of this house no matter what happens. We'll just make the next step when it comes up. But we figure this gives us a bit more time to list it at what we'd like to sell it at without being in a rush.
