Oh no - A bit of Life number 2!!

Hi everyone.  Guess what - I'm at it again.  This week, I am going to be busy, busy, busy.

It's Emily's turn to have her room painted, so I thought I would share the room before with you.

Here are some pictures, before I started taking everything down and out.

Picture the lilac curtains that are now in Shannon's made over room :-)  I would not have hung yellow curtains in this room, they were just there for the week before I get started.  They will, however fit really nicely with her new colour choice.  And another before.

Spent yesterday, removing pictures, shelves and sticky wall decorations oh and the curtains.

Also removed every bit of furniture, except the bed base! 

You maybe wondering where all that furniture is!!  Well it is in my bedroom - I will not be showing you a picture, it looks like a bomb has hit it!

This will all be taped up and all the white work (baseboards, window frames, closet doors) repainted today. Then tomorrow will start painting the walls.  A lot less work involved in this room, not so much on the walls and no major repairs needed.

So catch up with you round blog land.  I do hope to have a post for you on Wednesday for here and The Bug Bytes, as it's my monthly visit there to share something.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of life with me.

Happy crafting.
