Extreme Room Makeover: Day One

As you saw from the Introduction Video, we had our work cut out for us in re-doing our son’s room in nine days and on a budget. How much did we have to spend? Well, as little as we could get away with (I’ll have the breakdown for you when we do the reveal).

Since we were doing the floor which included topping with polyurethane, there would be a three day wait before we could return the furniture as well as the time to put the floor down, so we needed to start as soon as possible.
First thing Saturday morning after our son left, we started cleaning up and clearing out the room.
I always forget how long this part takes.

Watch this video full size on YouTube.

Stay tuned tomorrow to see how much we were able to accomplish the rest of the week, plus some tips on painting and the (infamous) flooring.

  1. You all are doing a great job. I feel like I’m watching a TV show.

  2. That is so great! Y’all should send it in to HGTV and get your own show!!
    Can’t wait to see how it turns out!
